irst published in 1964 and reprinted several times since, the Archbishop's chapters were given in substance at a mission in the University of Oxford in 1960. Dr Ramsey has written a fresh preface and has expanded his remarks, originally limited by their form as mission addresses, in a number of places. In its new format it will serve the 197os as well as it served the 196os. 'We recommend this short book unreservedly to those who wish to find out, in briefest compass, the essence of the Christian faith and life' (Church Times). 'Deep but not heavy, and always felicitous ... an admirable introduction to the Christian Faith, with a graceful appeal to reason as befits a great Christian humanist' (Times Literary Supplement).
