“This little book examines the ‘DNA’ of Christians. Despite all Christians possessing different physical features, personalities, and cultural backgrounds, as well as varying peripheral concerns, there are core beliefs which are basic to those who have truly put their trust in Jesus. Of course, we know that many, especially in the West, claim the name ‘Christian’ but are not following Jesus. For them, it is social and cultural. But what is it that people who are more than nominal Christians believe? What are the building blocks of real Christian faith? What is basic for the person who has come to know God in a dynamic and intimate relationship? What is the Christian’s DNA?… I pray that [this book] will introduce you to the true and living God who is, after all, the Author of DNA!”

Praise for What is a Christian?:
“Roger’s enthusiasm for Jesus is infectious and, through his ministry, many have caught the bug! This little book bubbles over with life as we’re pointed again and again to the Lord Jesus. A great introduction for enquirers.”
-Glen Scrivener ~ Evangelist, Revival Media, Eastbourne
“Roger writes to feed and challenge the intellect, to warm the heart and to pull at the will for a clear response. This is not only a book; it is a compelling and convincing evangelistic talk! There is huge confusion as people answer this question and this book helpfully deals with all the reason for that confusion. There is a real honesty about the bad news for people, but a wonderful joy about the good news. It is all written by a man whose heart has so obviously been gripped by the Lord Jesus and His wonderful gospel.”
-Tim Hanson ~ Vicar, Christ Church Wharton, Winsford
“What is a Christian? is a clear, compelling and concise introduction to the life of faith. It’s amazing how much wonderful truth can be squeezed into just 80 pages!”
-Dave Gobbett ~ Associate Pastor, Eden Baptist Church, Cambridge
