"This is not a textbook of formal theology. It is a layperson's introduction to the essential doctrines of Christianity."

A fantastic, compact introduction on almost every question you could think of.

Very good introduction to the essential Christian Doctrines. Also serves as a "quick reference" when questions come up -- each topic is only about 2 pages long, so this book also makes a very nice daily study -- at one chapter a day, you can read through the book four times in a year. ( )

Great quick resource. I have use it as the basic of youth Bible studies, adult Sunday School lessons, personal reference/research, devotional reading, etc. I have also given away more than I can recall. ( )

The back cover of the book claims that the book offers"theologically sound explanations of the biblical concepts every Christian should know, written in a way that we can all understand." To accomplish all this, Sproul divided the book into ten categories of theology, including revelation, the nature and attributes of God, the works and decrees of God, Jesus Christ, human beings and the fall, salvation, the church and sacraments, spirituality and the living in this age, and end times. He uses these comprehensible terms instead of the academic terms, such as soteriology, anthropology, and ecclesiology.

Each category is divided into a number of sections, each a manageable couple or so pages long. Sproul includes several references that relate to each section as well as a summary. In the back of the book is a very helpful bibliography of suggested readings for more thorough discussion of each category. This book is helpful in grasping important ideas of the Bible. ( )
