A Systematic Summary of Bible Truth
Doctrine isn’t just for theologians. It’s important for every Christian because it shows us who God is and how we should live. Biblical Doctrine systematizes the robust theology that has undergirded Dr. John MacArthur’s well-known preaching ministry for decades. This overview of basic Christian doctrine covers topics such as God the Father, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Bible, salvation, and more.
Biblical Doctrine: A Systematic Summary of Bible Truth is comprehensive in scope yet written to be accessible to the average reader. Its non-technical vocabulary, minimal footnotes, and helpful bibliography make this volume a solid statement of what Christians believe and why.
“The ministry of John MacArthur has had a worldwide impact. MacArthur and Mayhue clearly unfold the doctrines that are at the heart of this ministry, which has touched so many. Here we see a ministry built on truth, the truth of God’s Word and the truth of the gospel. A wonderful resource for students, pastors, and professors.” — Thomas R. Schreiner, Professor of New Testament Interpretation and Professor of Biblical Theology, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky
“This book comes from a lifetime of studying and from the garnered wisdom of centuries. In combining devotion to Scripture with commitment to biblical doctrine, it addresses a great contemporary need. Strong beliefs make strong churches. One does not have to agree with the esteemed authors on every subject to be thankful for a volume of rich and enduring importance.” — Iain H. Murray, author of The Old Evangelicalism, and Founding Trustee, Banner of Truth Trust
“This new resource is a rich and compelling presentation of Christianity’s theological foundations, providing readers with an accessible but compelling systematization of biblical truth. As the last vestiges of Christian influence erode in the West, rich theological resources like Biblical Doctrine will edify and strengthen the church as it faces stiff opposition from the world.” — R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky
