Overview

An Easy-to-Use Guide to Christian Theology

Theology can be intimidating, even overwhelming. Where do you start? How is it important to the Christian life? What are the key topics that you need to understand? How do you make time to study something so complex without going to Bible college or seminary?

In Understanding Theology in 15 Minutes a Day, professor and former pastor Daryl Aaron answers forty critical questions about the Christian faith. Arranged by topic, you can choose the areas that interest you or systematically read through the book. Each section is short and easy to understand. You'll come away with a deeper faith as you learn about the nature of God, heaven, the Bible, church, and even yourself.

"This delightful summary of Christian theology is no dull systematics sample platter. Aaron offers classic exposition that informs and tantalizes readers no matter how sophisticated their theological palates."
--Douglas S. Huffman, Professor and Associate Dean of Biblical and Theological Studies, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
