The purpose of Deeper Christian Faith is to form Christians in such a depth of Christian faith, grounded in biblical, historical, and ecumenical insights, that they can state with confidence what they believe and practice in common with other Christians and grow in the self-giving love at the heart of the Christian faith. The book is a “re-sounding,” a re-catechism for Christians who seek deeper formation in beliefs and practices widely received in Christian communities. Anchored by focus texts that allow readers to meditate on biblical and historic texts in ancient formats as well as contemporary translations, this intensive program of study allows contemporary Christians to experience the rich, alien, and mysterious worlds of historic Christian teachings and practices. The book follows the central theme of the self-giving love of God, revealed in Jesus Christ, and then formed in the life of a believer.
