"The book is sensitive to areas of contemporary concern, tackling questions that newcomers find particularly perplexing about the Christian worldview, and discussing topics such as religion and science, and religious pluralism. To help readers understand this rich area, the book contains vignettes of major figures, glossaries, and self-study questions."--BOOK JACKET." ;
