This is a very important book for any Christian to read
October 24, 2014
I was receiving the e-devotional for this book and liked it so much I had to order the book itself. Bravo to Sproul for a book that is easy to understand and clear on what is necessary in my faith. I am thoroughly enjoying it. Thank you.
In this book, Dr. Sproul clearly presents the essential doctrines of the Christian faith. Even though the book is written from a Calvinist and Presbyterian perspective, Arminians and other sound evangelicals can benefit. This book does include some Presbyterian and Calvinist beliefs, however, it also covers all of the doctrines that are essential to being within the True Church. "In Essentials, Unity; In Non-Essentials, Liberty; In All Things, Charity". God Bless.
Although Dr. Sproul is broadly educated, this book seems written with blinders on. The 'essential truths' contained within, begs for a 'This is the firm ground that this truth stands upon' treatment. Seems to inclusive, for fear of making offense.
