Book Overview

Catechesis is an ancient practice of Christian disciple making that uses a simple question-and-answer format to instruct new believers and church members in the core beliefs of Christianity. To Be a Christian, by J. I. Packer and a team of other Anglican leaders, was written to renew this oft-forgotten tradition for today's Christians. With over 360 questions and answers, plus Scripture references to support each teaching, this catechism covers the full range of Christian doctrine and life, drawing from the Apostles' Creed, the Lord's Prayer, the Ten Commandments, and other important doctrinal summaries. Clear, concise, and conversational, this resource was written for all believers who seek to be grounded more deeply in the truth of God's Word.

   A beautiful book, and a great work.
Packer did a great job with the contents of this book, and Crossway did a worthy job making the book itself, he said. It's a beautiful catechism, inside and out, Raymond said.
   A Catechism With a Christ-Like Focus
The book is titled The Anglican Communion and was originally written by John Paul Jones. Like many other Christian apologetics, it is a question and answer book to teach Scriptural truths to both young and old. Whereas other Christian apologetics focus on truths about God, His nature, and then our responses to these truths, this book focuses more on how these questions and answers should point us toward Christ to both honor Him and be like Him. The Christian part of this book's title takes on new meaning when the reader becomes a Christian. For this reason, I appreciate the layout of this catechism with respect to others, Raymond said. I received a review copy from Crossway in exchange for my honest assessment of the book.
   Just right
To Be a Christian fills a need among Anglicans and those curious about this part of the church for a full and accessible outline of our Christian faith. The new edition includes a robust collection of scripture references for each question and answer. It is also produced with a durable binding and cover that makes it suitable for years of use. While I wish it was cheaper, this is a good product and if you are Anglican, or just have some questions about what Anglicans believe, you should have one.
   Valuable improvement on an already text
This is a great update to the previous release, said Dr. Chester Floyd, director of the University of Michigan's Center for Computer Science. The hardback is great quality, though I would have said no to a ribbon marker, he said. The book itself is very close to the previous version with some necessary corrections and valuable additions in the way of references to scripture and introductory words. It's a great resource for Anglicans, Baptists, and other like-minded Christians.
