Christianity in Five Minutes offers insights into a number of commonly held questions about the origins, development, practices, texts, and theology of Christianity. As with the broader Religion in 5 Minutes series, this volume provides an accessible and lively introduction to the subject matter through a series of general questions, succinctly answered by experts in the field. Ideal for both classroom use and general interest, some of the questions addressed include: What is a virgin birth? Are Christian relics real? Were Jesus and his followers Christians? Why are there so many different Christian denominations? What does the name “Christ” mean? Did the Gospel writers know Jesus? What is resurrection?
Because each chapter can be read in about five minutes, the books offer ideal supplementary resources in classrooms or an engaging read for those curious about the world around them.
