Did Jesus Really Exist? and 51 other questions

What do Christians believe? What is typical of the Christian faith and how Christians live their faith?

With 52 questions and answers, this book gives you an overview of the content of the Christian faith. Read it as an introduction to Christianity or a deepening refreshment of the basic elements.

The questions are taken from life.  What do people do in heaven? Is God a judge who condemns? Why should you forgive yourself? Does suffering make sense? Are other religions wrong? Has Jesus laughed?

All pieces can be read in a maximum of two minutes. The answer is followed by questions to work on it individually or together with others, as well as references to other questions relating to the subject under discussion. At the end of the book is a list with a short description of 52 common words such as prayer, grace, heaven, Easter, sin, sacrament and devil.
