"Growing out of direct experience of preparing young people for confirmation, this book offers an elegant, accessible, systematic and ecumenically useful way of laying the foundations of Christian faith. Rebecca Kirkpatrick builds on a scriptural framework to show how engaging with the narratives and personalities of the two Testaments inevitably faces us with challenging ethical, doctrinal and social questions. She leads her readers with deceptive gentleness to realize that to make a Christian commitment is to take seriously the commitments of other Christians, and people of other faiths. But more than this, through study, worship and creative involvement in our world, it is to set a pattern for life."
