What is at the heart of this diverse, messy, and sometimes horribly misrepresented faith called Christianity? Most attempts to summarize the Christian faith are either overwhelmingly detailed or skewed to a specific denomination, but Faith Hope Love offers an updated explanation that is both concise in its content and interdenominational in its approach. Distilled from historical Christian beliefs and rooted in three classic Christian words, Faith Hope Love artfully expresses the beauty of Christian faith for anyone who is:

•    Curious about how Christianity forms in its followers a sense purpose, meaning, identity, perseverance, and ethics – addressing the question, ‘’Why can't I just try to be a ‘good person’ instead?’’

•    Confused about why there are so many versions of Christianity and if are there any basic beliefs that unite them – answering concerns like,‘’Do I have to read the Bible literally?,’’ or ‘’How can hell be compatible with God’s love?’’

•    Skeptical that Christianity is any different from any other religion that is used for social control – responding to the fear, ‘’Will Christianity just try to make me conform more and think less?’’

Faith Hope Love finally fills a much-needed niche in contemporary theological literature. Author and pastor Colin Kerr offers an introduction to the Christian faith that is both academic enough for educational use and accessible enough for Millennials and Gen Z-ers to explore for themselves.
