This general introduction to Christianity makes a valuable information resource for KS3 and 4 Religious Education students. Written by a highly experienced author of books on religion for children, it covers the foundation and history of Christianity. It continues by exploring the beliefs, teachings and practices of modern Christianity, which includes a look at sacred texts and places of worship. The final chapters focus on Christianity and society, and its role in the modern world. A special feature of the book is the 'in our own words' panels in which practising Christians give a personal perspective on being a Christian today. There are numerous panels that give more detailed information on specific aspects such as monks and nuns, as well as quoting important texts. Wayland Weblinks throughout the book direct readers to specifically chosen websites, via the Wayland Weblinks website, for further information. Imaginatively chosen photos with detailed captions extend the range of information presented. Maps and diagrams show the distribution of believers around the world and historical facts like the spread of Christianity in Roman times. An historical timeline, glossary and index all contribute to making this a highly engaging and accessible source of information and thus an essential work of reference for the 11-14 age range.
