Endorsements

Dr. Thoennes is a masterful teacher. With biblical precision and profound understanding, he comes to grips with the most often asked questions about the gospel. The beauty of following Christ comes through with such clarity that the reader will want to fall in love with Jesus all over again." -Robert E. Coleman, Distinguished Professor of Discipleship and Evangelism, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary; author, The Master Plan of Evangelism

"A concise and engaging introduction to the core beliefs of the Christian faith that would be helpful both to followers of Christ and those who are investigating the Christian faith and want to understand what Christians believe. Not only does Thoennes show how these beliefs are rooted in Scripture but he also helps us see how they practically relate to the Christian life." -Keith Johnson, Director, Theological Education and Development, Campus Crusade for Christ

"It is refreshing to see a book that addresses our deepest concerns from a distinctively theological perspective. Professor Thoennes is a master communicator, and Life's Biggest Questions is marked by an accessible, interesting style. The book is filled with content and distinctively characterized by repeated examples of practical application. It is a fun read and would make an excellent text for a course in theology or Christian worldview." -J.P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Talbot School of Theology

"This splendid book provides clear and concise answers to life's greatest questions. It is a perfect volume for intelligent truth seekers and Christians who want to build a firmer biblical foundation for their faith." -Lyle Dorsett, Billy Graham Professor of Evangelism, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University

    Most Christians fall into three camps regarding theology, either they think that theology is dry, boring and divisive, or they are really passionate about theology but have no love or patience for those who disagree. The third camp over time has learned what doctrines are directed related to the Gospel, and which doctrines are non-essential to the Gospel. In a style similar to John Stott's Basic Christianity, Dr. Erik Thoennes has written Life's Biggest Questions What The Bible Says about The Things That Matter Most. His book is a very helpful primer on what biblical Christianity teaches. One of the really cool features of this book is the recommended reading at the end of each chapter that will help the reader to go deeper into the subject matter the author discusses.

    The most helpful chapter in this book in my opinion is chapter three where the author examines what it means to know and love God. Here the author briefly explains how to test whether a doctrine is essential to the Gospel, or whether it is secondary. The author calls essential doctrines to the Gospel "absolutes" which according to him define the core beliefs of the Christian faith. The second thing he mentions is convictions, which are not core beliefs, but may have significant impact on the health and effectiveness of the church. The third point he makes is opinions which are views or personal judgments that are generally not worth dividing over. Finally questions are unsettled issues. (Thoennes, 35).

    I recommend you get a copy of Life's Biggest Questions What The Bible Says about The Things That Matter Most by Dr. Erik Thoennes. This book will help you to know and to think through what biblical Christianity is, which will equip you to contend and defend the Christian faith. Life's Biggest Questions What the Bible Says about The Things that Matter Most is a good book for the new believer, but also for the Bible College or seminary students looking for a very basic introduction to theology. Pick up a copy of this book and learn what it means to know, love and serve God with all of your heart, mind and strength.

    We all have questions. Children ask a lot of questions and sometimes it is the same question until they get an answer they want to hear. When it comes to questions such as, who is God, what does the Bible say about a certain topic, or how does the church run? Even Christians have questions regarding their faith because they want to grow. This is where Erik Thoennes' <em>Life's Biggest Questions</em> come in.

    This short book asks the most basic questions of the Christian faith. Does God exist, what is God like, and what is sin, are some of the questions this book addresses. Each chapter is loaded with theological truth saturated with scripture all the purpose of equipping believers to answer the most basic questions of the Christian faith. At the end of each chapter are questions used to apply and also help the reader think about what he/she just read. This is great for small group discussions.

    I wished this book was around when I first believe because it is so simple that a new believer in Christ can read and understand. This book is also for mature believers who want a deeper understanding of their faith and to answer questions that lost people may have. This is also a great small group or Sunday School class to teach and get people talking about the Christian faith.
