Overview

Most people-even most Christians-do not have a basic working knowledge of the Bible. How can we understand the story of God-and our part in it-when we're not familiar with it? In this basic introduction to faith, D. A. Carson takes you through the big story of Scripture to help you know what you believe and why you believe it. Make sure to get the companion leader's guide to help evangelistic study groups, small groups, and Sunday school classes make the best use of this book in group settings.
