"As our lives become marked by increasing complexity, there is something very refreshing about simplicity. For every dozen books that leave us asking, 'What did that mean?' we might find one that is clear, concise, immediately understandable, and obviously applicable. This book passes these tests of readability ..."
- Alistair Begg, Senior Pastor, Parkside Church

But because many of us don't have a good grasp of the fundamentals, we find our spiritual lives stagnant. With 54 brief topical discussions, Basics for Believers includes subjects like the Trinity, life goals, worship, budgeting and evangelism, making the basics of Christianity accessible and understandable for everyone.
