This book is comparing Christian Churches' dogmas, to show their differences that leaded to the separation from the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) through Schisms, and to try to find solutions of a new way towards a United Christian Church (UCC).
    Jesus of Nazareth had a public ministry that lasted two or three years in Israel, after many years of self instruction and meditation, but this short ministry had a gigantic impact in the life of the mankind, with essential consequences on the earth's development over centuries.  
    After Jesus' crucifixion, His Apostles started to spread Jesus' Gospel all around the world.  All Christian Churches agree with all basic Bible's beliefs: God become incarnate in Jesus, Christ atoned for man's sin through His death on the cross, Christ rose in bodily form from the grave, proving He is God, and the Bible is the inspired word of God.
     But beside these fundamental precepts, there are differences, which must be spelled out when each Christian has to decide to cast his eternal tie to Jesus Christ, who is "the way, the truth and the life".
     The purpose of this book is to show all Christians a direction toward Christian unity, solving thru friendship and cooperation the Christian Church's greatest sin of schism.   That unity will have an immense impact on people's lives, and will create condition of peace, cooperation and prosperity for human being everywhere, without discrimination of religion, race, sex, age, language and social situation.  This humble essay for Christian unity is devoted especially to the most venerable Pope of all time, John Paul II, who, never tired, battled his entire life to "tear down the wall between Catholics, Orthodox and Protestants".    And Christians will find a United Christian Church,  one true, apostolic and Catholic Church", as willed by Jesus.
