Doctrine isn't just for theologians - it's important for every Christian because it shows us who God is and how we should live. Systematising the robust theology that has undergirded Dr. John MacArthur's well-known preaching ministry for decades, this overview of basic Christian doctrine is comprehensive in scope yet written to be accessible to the average reader - with non-technical vocabulary, minimal footnotes and a helpful bibliography.
"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... 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, 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."
- R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
