What's the Least I Can Believe and Still Be a Christian? : A Guide to What Matters Most

Posted on 19 November 2012 Gavin Glenn

"For anyone still trying to get out from under that old, hard brand of Christianity that clinches its fist against science, women, or other faiths, and for those trying to sort out the simple basics of what we believe is at the heart of the Christian faith, Thielen's book is clear, accessible, down-to-earth, and reliable."
James C. Howell, author and senior pastor, Myers Park United Methodist Church, Charlotte, North Carolina

"If you long to clear away theological underbrush and discover, (or rediscover) a Jesus-centred approach to the Christian faith, read this book. He combines theological acumen, a pastor's heart, and a knack for storytelling to fashion one of the most useful books I've read in a long time."
Michael A. Smith, Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church, Murfreesboro, Tennessee

"Martin Thielen's whimsical title disguises a very serious issue every clergyperson deals with daily: how to help Christians navigate through myths and misunderstandings and faulty assumptions about our faith. This is a fine resource for clergy and laity alike, particularly those who have wondered, 'Do I have to believe that?'"
John M. Buchanan, Pastor, Fourth Presbyterian Church, Chicago, Illinois

"With this book Thielen invites readers into a safe space to ask the tough questions surrounding our most commonly held beliefs. He releases us from the guilt of doubt and sets us free to examine our faith and conclude that doubt not only goes hand in hand with faith but actually enhances it."
Sharon L. Baker, Associate Professor of Theology and Religion and Coordinator of the Peace and Conflict Studies Program, Messiah College
