A masterful, inviting telling of the Christian story
Christian faith, says Martin Copenhaver, is not a subject to be mastered like calculus or Shakespeare-it is a story to be told and a life to be lived. No matter how much or how little you know, To Begin at the Beginning tells the story of Christian faith and invites you to take part in it.
In this book Copenhaver covers basic themes-the Bible, church, ministry, sacraments, prayer, ethics&mdash:in a clear and inviting way. His approach creates a valuable resource for pastors, an accessible guide for seekers and new Christians, and a "refresher course" for longtime Christians who want to engage anew with what they believe.
Rev. Copenhaver is a magna cum laude graduate of Dickinson College and received his Master of Divinity from Yale Divinity School in 1980. Rev. Copenhaver served churches in Phoenix, Arizona, Burlington, Vermont and Westport, Connecticut before becoming Senior Pastor of Wellesley Congregational Church in 1994.
He is the author of Living Faith While Holding Doubts; To Begin at the Beginning: An Introduction to the Christian Faith; Good News in Exile (co-authored with Anthony B. Robinson and William Willimon); Words for the Journey: Letters to Our Teenagers About Life and Faith (co-authored with Anthony B. Robinson) and This Odd and Wondrous Calling: The Public and Private Lives of Two Ministers with Lillian Daniel
