Non-believers are not the only ones today who know little about what God's Word has to say. Many professing Christians haven't even a basic understanding of the fundamental doctrines found in Scripture. How can we as believers then, understand our role in God's perfect plan if we are not familiar with the Bible? In this basic introduction to the faith, D.A. Carson takes new Christians, seekers, and small groups through Scripture to help them define what they believe, and why! Companion leader's guide sold separately (SKU 013737).

It can no longer be assumed that most people--or even most Christians--have a basic understanding of the Bible. Many don't know the difference between the Old and New Testament, and even the more well-known biblical figures are often misunderstood. It is getting harder to talk about Jesus accurately and compellingly because listeners have no proper context with which to understand God's story of redemption.
In this basic introduction to faith, D. A. Carson takes seekers, new Christians, and small groups through the big story of Scripture. He helps readers to know what they believe and why they believe it. The companion leader's guide helps evangelistic study groups, small groups, and Sunday school classes make the best use of this book in group settings.
D. A. Carson (PhD, University of Cambridge) is research professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He is the author or editor of more than forty books and is one of the leaders of the Gospel Coalition.
