Two excellent books, presenting the Christian Faith on its own terms, i.e. not in comparison to other faiths, not in defense to accusations, just plain presentation:
John W.R. Stott
InterVarsity Press, 1958, 1971
John Stott is very much just presenting and explaining the message of the Bible.
A site about John Stott.
We just found out from the above "John Stott Site" (October 14, 1997):
Basic Christianity is our next online study for the Stott Daily Devotional. It will begin in just a few days.

Mere Christianity (some excerpts)
C.S. Lewis is approaching the presentation of the Christian faith in a more 'philosophical' manner.
Both books complement each other in a very good way.

If you want to learn about the Bible and the way it is translated, its historical background and how to interpet it, then I would recommend you to read a good book on the topic. My suggestion:
John R. W. Stott
Understanding the Bible
2nd ed., 1982, Zondervan, 192 pp. $12.99,
Very readable, non-technical, but thorough first introduction by one of the finest Christian scholars of today.
Exploring the Christian Faith
A Contemporary Handbook of What Christians Believe and Why
Thomas Nelson Publishers, 1996, 350 pp., $12.99, ISBN 0-7852-1150-0
[Earlier editions: The Lion Handbook of Christian Belief]. This is a very comprehensive source giving articles on just about every area of Christianity in doctrine and practice, written by over a hundred of the finest Christian scholars. Very much recommended to get an overview and as a reference work.
If you need a book that deals in depth with some questions you have, you are welcome to ask me for a good reference on that specific topic you are interested in.
