Christian doctrine matters for Christian living. This is ‘one of the most important growth points of the Christian life’, writes Sinclair B. Ferguson. From this starting point, The Christian Life expounds such key biblical themes as grace, faith, repentance, new birth and assurance with clarity and contagious enthusiasm. ‘Christian doctrines are life-shaping’, explains the author, because ‘they show us the God we worship’. Widely used and appreciated since its first appearance, The Christian Life not only expounds the teaching of Scripture, but outlines its meaning for practical Christian living.
Biblical theology. Sound doctrine. All right living begins with such right thinking.
Our study of Christian doctrine helps us better understand the God we worship, the depth of Christ’s love and atoning work on the cross, and the work of the Spirit in our everyday lives. In many ways, biblical theology forms the foundation of the Christian life.
Dr. Sinclair Ferguson, beloved theologian and pastor, offers a clear, practical introduction to such doctrine in The Christian Life: A Doctrinal Introduction. Widely used and appreciated since its first appearance, the book not only expounds the teaching of Scripture, but also outlines its relevance for practical Christian living.
Covering key biblical themes such as grace, faith, repentance, new birth, and assurance, Dr. Ferguson’s wisdom-packed writing provides a clear understanding of what Christian doctrine is, how to explain it to others, and how to live it out in our own lives. “Christian doctrines,” he writes, “show us the God we worship and illuminate our understanding of His Son’s love and His Spirit’s work.”
God blesses us with doctrine in His Word in order to fill our lives with stability and grace. Benefit from this thoughtful introduction to the heart-changing truths of Scripture.
