For anybody who still bothers to check my infrequently updated blog, I have a question. Recently the fellowship I am a part of have been doing some evangelism (in various contexts) and I am thinking of writing a short introduction to Christianity that could be handed out (if so desired) at some of these events. When I say short I don’t mean something like a tract but perhaps 10-15 A4 pages or so. My aim would be that the introduction would be compelling and easy to understand for anybody that would read it, but also thought-provoking enough to engage a more serious reader.
So, my question is this: what material would you cover in such a booklet? If you had 15 pages to explain Christianity, to an unbeliever or a new believer, what would you say?
I have a fairly good idea what I’m going to put in there, but I thought some external input might be interesting.
I will post a first draft of the document to the blog as I write it.
Update: It occurs to me that the question above doesn’t have much relevance for non-Christians. For those of you who aren’t believers, perhaps you could tell me what you feel are the most important questions you would hope to be answered in such an introduction as described above.
