Endorsements

What does the church believe? What does the church's faith have to do with prayer, worship and life in the everyday world? Why don't all churches believe the same thing? Tony Lane addresses these basic questions and more. Students, especially, will find this a welcome guide.
-Joel B. Green,
Fuller Theological Seminary

Tony Lane is a masterful teacher. He has a knack for writing epigrammatic sentences that instantly clarify an issue. He has a gift for accurately apt illustrations. Just when things might be getting a little dull, he throws in a joke or even a cartoon. Ideal for anyone who wants to understand the basics.
-Richard Bauckham,
University of St Andrews, Scotland

Engaging in style, evangelical in spirit, ecumenical in atmosphere and eclectic in its use of resources, Exploring Christian Doctrine will delight students looking for a textbook that is clear and informative, never overbearing but always challenging.
-Sinclair B. Ferguson,
Redeemer Theological Seminary, Dallas, Texas

Tony Lane's survey of Christian belief is accessible and engaging. Alive to historical debates and to contemporary challenges, his focus nonetheless remains on offering a clear and thorough account of the essential points of Christian doctrine from a broadly evangelical perspective. Anyone wanting to understand what Christians believe and why will find this an extremely helpful guide.
-Steve Holmes,
University of St Andrews, Scotland

The book's structure is appetizingly laid out in a series of initial questions, positions taken, objections raised, errors to avoid and Lane's own succinct answers - all framed by creedal and confessional bounds and set within the context of worship.
-Kevin J. Vanhoozer,
Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

This is a simply outstanding introduction to doctrine. The product of decades of classroom experience, it is rooted in the Bible, answers a barrage of questions and objections, and is enlivened by cartoons and humor. If you think doctrine is dull and boring, think again.
-Robert Letham,
Wales Evangelical School of Theology
