Overview

Description:
More than at any time in the past, today's evangelicals struggle to understand what the essence of the Christian faith really is. The basic teachings of Jesus Christ have been lost in many pulpits and have been replaced with feel good doctrines foreign to God's Word. Christians who want to defend their faith must first have a basic understanding of what it is and how to support it with Scriptural proofs. This book assembles the fundamentals of the Christian religion in an easy-to-read, question-and-answer format.

Whether you are continuing your pursuit of biblical knowledge or just beginning, this little instructional book will go a long way toward achieving your goal.


Endorsements:
""Adam Murrell has produced an excellent tool for teaching theology in the home or in classes at church. The format is easily manageable, very pleasing, and pedagogically advantageous. The combination of questions, scripture proofs, and summary statements will prove over the long haul to be highly instructive and the cumulative effect will be exposure to a profound body of divinity. Not only are his comments helpful for heightening comprehension and encouraging discussion, but they are thoughtfully tied to the whole of biblical truth.""

""Adam Murrell has made the 1689 Confession of Faith accessible in a fresh way for believers of all ages.""
