Christian essentials made plain and simple.

God doesn’t call every Christian to go off to seminary, but there are certain matters of doctrine - that is, the church’s teaching - that every Christian simply must know. 

Theology is important because what we believe affects how we live. If you’re a relatively new believer in Jesus, or if you’re a more mature Christian looking for a quick brush-up on basics of the faith, Christian Beliefs is for you. 

This guide to 20 basic Christian beliefs is a condensation of Wayne Grudem’s award-winning book on systematic theology, prized by pastors and teachers everywhere. He and his son, Elliot, have boiled down the essentials of Christian theology for the average layperson and made them both clear and applicable to life. 

You will learn about the Bible, the characteristics of God, what it means that we are created in the image of God, what God has done for us in Christ, the purpose of the church, and much more. Each chapter includes questions for personal review or group discussion. These truly are 20 basic beliefs that every Christian should know. 

Wayne Grudem is a master teacher with the ability to explain profound truths in simple language. He is a man of deep conviction and theological passion - and those who listen to this audiobook will be both educated and encouraged in the faith.
