“The Faith” – Chapter 1

Colson begins his book by outlining why it is important to understand “the faith given once, for all.”  The colson-faithlast two millenia have seen Christianity spread across hundreds of cultures and people groups, while still maintaining the heart of “mere Christianity. 

However, Colson sees American Christians as remarkably ignorant of our core historic beliefs, something that opens us up to the twin threats of radical Islam and “anti-theism.” 

As you begin reading this book, how would you rate your understanding of Christianity’s core, historic beliefs?  Do you agree or disagree with Colson about their absolute importance in your life?
