About-

The purpose of Deeper Christian Faith is to form Christians in such a depth of Christian faith, grounded in biblical, historical, and ecumenical insights, that they can state with confidence what they believe and practice in common with other Christians and grow in the self-giving love at the heart of the Christian faith. The book is a “re-sounding,” a re-catechism for Christians who seek deeper formation in beliefs and practices widely received in Christian communities. Anchored by focus texts that allow readers to meditate on biblical and historic texts in ancient formats as well as contemporary translations, this intensive program of study allows contemporary Christians to experience the rich, alien, and mysterious worlds of historic Christian teachings and practices. The book follows the central theme of the self-giving love of God, revealed in Jesus Christ, and then formed in the life of a believer.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“This work reflects who the author is and what he holds dear. At the same time he is encouraging others to go deeper into their lives of faith while using our faculties of tradition, reason, Scripture, and experience. It is an invitational reflection of and to the Christian life. It is a serious and profound work for those who want to journey deeper in their Christian life and faith. Be prepared for his wit and wisdom as he shares with us Jesus with integrity.”

—Philip M. Duncan, II, retired bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast



“Although there are many writings about the history and theology of ecumenism, there are comparatively few works on an ecumenical spirituality that are doctrinally based. Ted Campbell’s Deeper Christian Faith provides a much-needed resource that is biblically-based, ecumenically sensitive, and very reader-friendly. This is a book that can be used for college and seminary classes, congregational study groups, and personal reflection.”

—John T. Ford, CSC, Professor of Theology and Religious Studies, The Catholic University of America, Washington, DC



“Do you suspect there is more to Christian faith than your own, perhaps limited, understanding? Do you want to know more about the mystery of God from the perspective of others’ faith expressions and practices? Campbell wants to lead us into a deeper Christian faith, which is a good journey to take; but he also broadens and enhances our journey by helping us dig deeper into the faith expression and practice of other believers.”

—Kevin Kanouse, retired bishop, Northern Texas-Northern Louisiana Mission Area,

Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
