What is the Point of Being a Christian?

By Timothy Radcliffe O.P. (Former Master of the Dominican Order)

Published by Burns & Oates

In this book, Timothy Radcliffe is at his best, writing with a prophetic edge. His argument for Christian belief is profoundly Catholic and profoundly human. But what is just as remarkable, Radcliffe's argument for and interpretation of Christian Gospel is couched in a deep understanding of human nature and the problems and anxieties of modern men and women. Radcliffe is far distant from the theologian's ivory tower and yet his understanding of the Gospel is profoundly theological. 

'What is the Point of Being a Christian? is a breath of fresh air at a time when such a thing is needed.
