Theology matters! At last it can be understood easily, thanks to this “layman's language” approach to biblical belief. Authored by J. I. Packer, one of the premier theologians of Christianity, this summary of Christian teaching covers nearly 100 major Christian beliefs from a Reformed perspective. Brief, easy-to-understand chapters offer precise descriptions without sacrificing depth. Thoughtfully arranged and refreshingly readable, this is a book that belongs on the shelf of every Christian.

This book was a perfect breakfast devotional or rather daily read. Each morning before school we would read a chapter (2 to 3 pages) concerning a topic. The explanations of the various aspects of theology were very concise and loaded with bible references that backed up the explanations. This book is also a great tool to do a quick look-up of various beliefs and where they come from, especially when you have a differences in view concerning an aspect of theology. Some of the terminology was over one or another of my kids head, and some of the work was difficult on the tongue. Still superior as an over-all guide.more
An excellent book of short chapters of important beliefs. J.I. Packer is one of the best and most articulate of the modern day "reformed" writers.more
