Product Description

In this easy-to-read book, Peter Jeffery shows us just how tantalizingly enjoyable Bible teaching can be. With short but solid chapters on key subjects, he outlines the ABCs of the Christian faith. Each of the chapters is bite-sized. There is just enough to manage at one time, and you will find there is much to nourish the mind as well as to warm the heart and inspire the will. Quotations from other writers are also included, as is a list of recommended books for additional reading. Bitesize Theology also includes a helpful guide for reading the New Testament and Psalms through in one year.

    I want to thank EP Books for providing a copy of Bitesize Theology in return for my honest review.

    This fall our family will be transitioning our boys from elementary school work into middle school studies. I'll be posting later this week about our plans for the coming year as far as curriculum and media go. One of the subjects my husband and I have agreed to introduce and be faithful about covering is theology. We want our children to truly understand biblical doctrine and be able to readily explain words such propitiation, justification, and regeneration.

    This is not because we hope their heads will swell and explode — it's because God's Word is important, and being biblically grounded is foundational to a vibrant relationship with Christ.

    As such, I've been searching for materials that can be used to educate our kids in the area of theology. With my classical / Charlotte Mason-ish bent, I like to approach an issue from a number of different angles, and use a variety of mediums. EP Books has been kind enough to give me the freedom to choose books I'd like to review, and with my current search for materials for next year underway, Bitesize Theology: An ABC of the Christian Faith by Peter Jeffery (EP Books, 2000) topped my list.

    Bitesize Theology is a fantastic primer for middle school and high school students of the basics of the Christian faith. The book is written for lay people, and as such, would be an excellent introduction to parents hoping to disciple their children as well. At just 109 pages, the book is manageable and easy to progress through. Each chapter is short — just 6 pages or less. The chapters are each divided into subtopics, making them perfect for shorter devotional readings (if that's the way your family rolls).

    Each of the 20 chapters covers a very specific aspect of theology, breaking it down into salient points. These points are thoroughly supported by Scripture. There's an "It's Worth Quoting" section at the end of each chapter with an excerpt on the given subject from a well-know (theologically conservative) writer. Review questions help students think through what they've learned in the light of Scripture, and each chapter also includes a suggestion for a book that would allow for further reading on the given topic. (Perhaps great resources for high school students!)

    Bitesize Theology is a great little primer on theology for your older students. It's clear, to-the-point, and encouraging. You don't have to take my word for it, though. The book comes recommended by Pastor John MacArthur who says: "Peter Jeffery has a unique gift for presenting difficult concepts precisely, with clear and simple language. Bitesize Theology is both sound and simple — a combination that is all too rare in modern evangelical literature. This is an invaluable resource for both lay people and serious students of theology."

    •ABC (The point of studying theology)

    •Big Words

    •God

    •Jesus

    •The Holy Spirit

    •The Trinity

    I would highly recommend this book to the lay person who wants a solid theological grounding based and grounded in biblical truth! The chapters are short and easy to read with thought provoking questions at the end of the chapters. The author also gives you lists of other resources and recommended reading for further study. This book will wet your appetite for the deeper things of God. You MUST buy this book if you want to be a grounded and effective christian who bases their life on GOD''s WORD! :)

    Simple yet outstanding. I have been involved in ministry for over 30 years...and find this little book an excellent material which can be used to teach all ages....from youth to adults. As theologians, we often forget the first enjoyments of learning the basics of the faith...this book brings back many exciting memories of growing in the faith.

    This book could have also been entitled "Theology for Dummies," and I say that as a great compliment. Having received seven years of seminary training, I have waded through my fair share of deep, hard-to-read theological works. From Emil Brunner to Dale Moody, I have covered a spectrum of authors. I cannot remember one of those theological titles that I would recommend to the average church member in my congregation.This work however, I recommend wholeheartedly. People in our churches today are starving for straightforward, biblically based, easy-to-read theology. Jeffery here speaks to the layperson as he outlines key doctrines of the Christian faith. Among the doctrines explained are: God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Trinity, Sin, Grace, Regeneration, Justification, Sanctification, and the Second Coming. I'm recommending this book to my church librarian as an addition to the materials available to our congregation. It is simply a superb primer on Christian theology!
