Christianity Explained starts from the assumption that the enquirer knows little or nothing about the Bible or the basic Gospel. It seeks to teach the Gospel slowly, one point each lesson, over a six-unit course. It is based on the Gospel of Mark, as this is the shortest and easiest gospel for someone starting out. Enquirers are assured from the beginning they will not be asked to read aloud, pray, sing or answer Bible questions that may embarrass them. Discussion however is encouraged.

Six sessions cover:

Jesus the Son of God
Jesus: His Crucifixion
Jesus: His Resurrection
Grace, Not Works
Theological Perspective
Conservative Evangelical

Age Group
Adult. Cross Examination is a special edition designed for teenagers.

    You can add Proserpine Whitsunday Uniting Church as one church who uses Christianity Explained. I use it whenever the opportunity arises and have found it over many years to be an excellent, easy to understand introduction to the essentials of the Christian faith.
