Essential Truths of Christianity

Available Platforms


The Essential Truths of Christianity will help you open your Bible so that you can discover what it says, understand its truths, and apply its message.

These sixty studies are deceptively short, simple, and clear. Each one can be read quickly, but if you really delve into them - checking the Scriptures (easy to do in PocketBible!), working through the Bible studies, thinking through the reflection questions - you will find a rich study resource.

There are six studies each on ten essential areas of Christian teaching: the Bible, God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, humanity, Godís messengers, salvation, the Christian, the church, and the last things.

You can use this for personal Bible study or for group study. If one section is studied each week, all of this material will be covered in just over a year.
