Readers of The Truth of the Gospel will find Biblical exposition of foundational truths, including God's sovereignty; Jesus as the only way to the one true God; predestination; the power of new birth and the implications of "Christ in you"; the validity of the baptism of the Holy Spirit; and the victorious nature of the kingdom of God. They will gain insight into difficult passages such as, "no one who is born of God sins," and "all the evil that the Lord had brought on him." They will receive Biblically-based answers to thorny and controversial questions, including, "Are the gifts valid for today?"; "What about the rapture?"; "What is a Christian's relationship to the law?"; and "Is rebuilding the temple blasphemy?" They will be equipped to discern, and Biblically refute, popular, but misguided, philosophies and opinions, and even traditional teachings, which are not the truth, such as baptismal regeneration, the cessation doctrine, and beliefs that the kingdom has not yet come or has already come in its fullness. They will be encouraged in their faith and in their love of God as they discover God's provisions for victorious living, and every believer's part in the unfolding of God's eternal purpose in the Lord Jesus. Peter Parris, a native of Great Britain, was converted at the age of thirteen at a Baptist church in South London.

He has founded churches in both Great Britain and the United States, where he has been living since 1978. He has worked with the Fellowship of Connected Churches and Ministries since its inception, and serves as one of its apostolic leaders. He is the author of the daily devotional book, Act Like A Man.
