Concise Theology: A Guide to Historic Christian Beliefs

$9.99

Description

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.

...theology is for doxology and devotion--that is, the praise of God and the practice of godliness. It should therefore be presented in a way that brings awareness of the divine presence. Theology is at its healthiest when it is consciously under the eye of the God of whom it speaks, and when it is singing to his glory. -- J.I. Packer, from the Preface to Concise Theology

Features

How can I know God better?
If only I had the time to study theology...
If only someone could explain the essentials of theology in bite-size portions...
If only there were a resource that went deep without drowning me in page after page...

J. I. Packer has done it!

Here's a book that explains the essentials of theology in a style and length that busy readers can appreciate. J. I. Packer, noted theologian and author of Knowing God, offers 94 concise studies. Each focuses on a unique facet of our great God and his wonderful plan for us.

Where does the Bible say that?

Each study is just a couple of pages long. That means you can find the answers you need quickly. But don't be fooled--there are plenty of Scripture references on every page you can easily review in PocketBible. You can go as deep as you want at the pace you want.

Short studies on the essentials

In these chapters, you'll find what Packer calls the "permanent essentials of Christianity." The essentials are summed up so that you can find them quickly and easily. The essentials are expressed so that you can both understand and appreciate the greatness of God. Discover for yourself why Christian theology is not just a system of beliefs, but a way of life.
