"John Schwarz is a careful thinker, a lover of the faith, an equipper of the church. He has devoted himself to making an understanding of Christian Scripture and thoughts available on a broad scale. I am grateful for his work."--John Ortberg, teaching pastor, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church"John Schwarz writes as a layman, and he writes so that laypersons can understand. However, what he writes shows the result of serious biblical scholarship. This is a good read for those who want to know what the Bible is all about."--Tony Campolo, professor emeritus, Eastern University"Both a guidebook for inquirers and beginners and a refresher course for the casual, this brief survey of the Christian Bible, Christian beliefs, Christian history, Christian living, and Christianity alongside other faiths is a book that excels. Brisk, exact, and user-friendly, it merits a very wide ministry, and will bring clarity of focus wherever it goes."--J. I. Packer, professor of theology, Regent College"Living Faith is an excellent roadmap for those starting out on the Christian journey. It is a good primer on the history of the Bible. It paints an excellent picture of the Big Story of God at work, and shows how the different parts of the Bible fit together. I warmly recommend it to all who want to flesh out their understanding of what it means to be a follower of Christ."--Leighton Ford, president, Leighton Ford Ministries"Concise, readable, fascinating, accurate, and above all, compelling to believers and non-believers who know little of the Bible and the life in Christ. I want this book to be a companion to everyone who reads the Bible. Lay men and women will love this summary, because it opens doors of understanding."--Jerry E. White, president emeritus, The Navigators"John Schwarz has written a reliable introduction to Christianity-simple but not simplistic, straightforward and brief."--Tim Stafford, senior writer, Christianity Today"Living Faith: A Guide to the Christian Life by John Schwarz is a much needed book that provides information to whet readers' appetites. It also opens wide the doors to help us see and imagine the future into which the Triune God is calling us even now."--Sara S. Henrich, associate professor of New Testament, Luther Seminary"This primer is a must read for anyone who is looking for an informed overview of the Bible, Christian traditions, and the continuing imperative for evangelism. Schwarz, long a lay teacher, provides an easy-to-read guide to basic facts, themes, and dates pertaining not only to the foundation and development of the church but also to simple but important clues for living the Christian life amid the challenges of a confusing world. I highly recommend Living Faith!"--Cain Hope Felder, professor of New Testament language and literature, Howard University
