Essential Teachings of the Christian Faith
Like Grudem’s larger Systematic Theology, here is a book outstanding in its clarity, readability to all, yet strong Scriptural emphasis and being thorough in scope and detail.
Treats every major subject in the realm of Christian theology, with sections devoted to the timely topics facing the church today, such as spiritual warfare, the gifts of the Spirit, when and how will Christ return, how do we know the Bible is God’s Word, and much more.
Packed with solid, Biblical answers to your most important questions, this is a handbook on theology which even the youngest Christian can understand.
This is an abridged edition of Grudem’s larger work on systematic theology. Jeff Purswell (Dean of Students at Sovereign Grace Pastor’s College, Gaithersburg, MD) assisted Grudem in composing this volume.
