Synopsis

Christianity by David Self

This general introduction to Christianity makes a valuable information resource for KS3 and 4 Religious Education students. Written by a highly experienced author of books on religion for children, it covers the foundation and history of Christianity. It continues by exploring the beliefs, teachings and practices of modern Christianity, which includes a look at sacred texts and places of worship. The final chapters focus on Christianity and society, and its role in the modern world. A special feature of the book is the 'in our own words' panels in which practising Christians give a personal perspective on being a Christian today. There are numerous panels that give more detailed information on specific aspects such as monks and nuns, as well as quoting important texts. Wayland Weblinks throughout the book direct readers to specifically chosen websites, via the Wayland Weblinks website, for further information. Imaginatively chosen photos with detailed captions extend the range of information presented. Maps and diagrams show the distribution of believers around the world and historical facts like the spread of Christianity in Roman times.An historical timeline, glossary and index all contribute to making this a highly engaging and accessible source of information and thus an essential work of reference for the 11-14 age range.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
