About Knowing Christ

Alister McGrath, a widely acknowledged master of contemporary spirituality, has written a profound meditation on one of the most deceptively simple-sounding tenets of the Christian faith, the centrality of Christ in the life of his followers, in Knowing Christ.

Written in an accessible style that will appeal to Christians of all denominations, Knowing Christ aims to stimulate a more direct and intimate relationship between Christ and the reader by engaging not just the intellect but, more important, the heart and imagination. It is a work of spirituality saturated with biblical texts and themes, but it also draws on the rich tradition in art and literature of Christian reflection on the centrality of Christ throughout the ages. The result is a lively, engaging, and always inspiring book of twenty-first century spirituality from one of the world's most popular and respected Christian writers, a book that will strengthen the faith of all who read it.


“A remarkably profound piece of work by an author who has a gift for story-telling, as well as a deep grasp of theology.” --The Tablet

“Engaging and touching--a professional theological takes us into his confidence about the Christian’s relationship with the living savior as he himself has come to know it. This is a good read, which will nourish and refresh. I heartily recommend it.” --J.I. Packer

“Blending the simplicity of a good storyteller with the scholarship of a great teacher, Alister McGrath opens his heart as he leads us along the road of his personal journey to Christ. It is an enthralling read, warmly recommended to spiritual searchers and bruised pilgrims.”
--Jonathan Aitken
