Have you ever taken the time to stop and consider why you believe what you believe? If you’re a Christian, it’s crucially important to think about your belief system and how it’s different from others. What do you believe about life and death, what are your opinions about an afterlife, and do you believe that a human being has a soul?

Nathan Holsteen and Michael Svigel have teamed up to create a second volume of Exploring Christian Theology. This volume focuses on Creation, Fall, and Salvation. It covers some basics that most members of Christian churches would agree on, such as how fundamental Creation is, and how humanity stands in relationship to sin. But this book poses some thought provoking-questions that can divide believers. For example: how, and when, is a soul created? Are people able to do good, or is this impossible due to their sinful nature? Is a person’s salvation secure, and if so, by how much?

I enjoyed this book very much and recommend it to Christians of all denominations. Holsteen and Svigel have created a thought-provoking book that will challenge Christians to examine their faith and think through important issues.
