Informazioni generali



To be honest, this book left me with more questions than answers. It was also very heady listening. I could rarely listen to more than one chapter at a sitting, and was often left wondering which side of the argument the writer was on.

“Why I Am a Christian” by John Stott is a classic Christian book with each chapter expounding on why Stott is a Christian, and the whys that should be behind our own profession of Christian faith as well. The book reads easily and yet inspires with every sentence. Highly recommend!

Some notable quotes from the book:

"Why I am a Christian is due ultimately neither to the influence of my parents and teachers, nor to my personal decision for Christ, but to 'the Hound of Heaven.’ That is, it is due to Jesus Christ Himself, who pursued me relentlessly even when I was running away from Him in order to go my own way."
(Note: this is only the first reason.)

“…we are more than material bodies needing food; we are spiritual beings needing God, needing transcendence.”

“…when worship is real, our hearts and minds are transported beyond time and space to join the whole church on earth and in heaven in the worship of God. Then we know what Jacob meant when he said, ‘Surely the LORD is in this place,’ and sometimes unbelievers coming in will fall down and worship with us, saying, ‘God is really among you!’”
