Link – What Is Christianity?

Soc.Religion.Christianity – What is Christianity?

Given that a large number of people in the world are Christians, the “most powerful man in the world” has to be a Christian, and it seems to be a fairly popular religion amongst the younger folks, it seems a good idea to gain a further understanding of what is Christianity… in an easy to read format.

The problem you’ll find with searching the web is that too often these are views by atheists (which inevitably slam Christianity) or by Christian apologetics (who defend Christianity with equal ferocity).

This site, which starts of with a preface describing the author (an elder in the Presbytarian Church [USA], among other things), presents the salient features and relevant history of Christianity without the heavy overlay of religious fervour. For the most part, it has kept to the author’s aim of a more “technical” description, though the author’s religious background shines through at times.

A site definitely worth reading, especially for non-Christians wishing to know more and Christians who don’t really understand what’s going on.
