24 studies exploring the Christian faith for use by individuals or groups


Understanding Christianity was written by the Director of the Centre for Christianity in Society, Paul Coulter.  It was first developed as a series of studies for use with overseas students in Belfast who wanted to explore the Christian faith.  It was instrumental in seeing many becoming Christians and growing in their faith.  It has since been translated into Burmese and is being used in Myanmar/Burma. I have made it available online for the benefit of anyone who wants to understand the Christian faith or to help others to do so.  The materials include an overview and appendix as well as three 'modules' containing eight studies each.
