If God exists, prove it then?
If God exists, what does it have to do with me?
If all this is true, now what?
This series of short workbooks, from the First Steps Of Discipleship series, are designed to help you think through some of life’s big questions. It all starts with the most important question of all: God – Is He Out There?
The questions that follow all hinge on our answer to that question. If we answer that there is a God, then how can we get to know Him and how should we now live?

Or if you yourself are new to the Christian faith, still struggling to make sense of what a Christian is, or what the Bible actually says, then this is an easy to understand guide as you take your first steps as a follower of Jesus.
