About the Book
Are you experiencing conflicts trying to understand your parents’ or friends’ Christian beliefs? Are you having difficulty explaining your Christian beliefs to other people? Are you having trouble defining it for yourself?
The goal of this book is to help provide some of the answers you seek, exactly as God intended—from his written Word. Ten essential areas basic to Christianity are presented to help you establish a foundation from which to grow and mature on your journey. While God is a mystery to all of us, the Holy Spirit has been placed inside each of us to help bridge the gap.
Throughout the book, three things will become clear. First, God desires to reconcile with humankind, to have a personal relationship with every one of us. We merely need to reach out toward him in trust and to respond in faith to his call. Second, when you understand God’s gift of grace, righteousness can become a tangible and significant attribute within your very being. You will mature and flourish like never before. Lastly, the love that transforms hearts and minds can bring you truth and enlightenment on your journey.

Defining Christianity: In Brevi began as a research project to help the author explain her Christian faith to her family and friends. This book is the resulting manuscript she has decided to share with everyone. It is her sincere hope and prayer that it has a profound impact on someone’s life.
As the disciple Paul said, “And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God” (Philippians 1:9–11 NIV).
