Divided up into one hundred easy-to-understand readings, 5 Minute Theologian will help you gain a better grasp of God, grace, Satan, sin, election, and many other essential concepts of your faith. In three months, you can become dramatically more informed than the average Sunday churchgoer.
Theology isn't something for just pastors to study. You also need to understand God's Word and principles to protect you and your family against a barrage of half-truths and outright lies. This book will give you a maximum amount of truth with a minimum commitment of time.

Tell us a little about yourself. I've been a pastor in U.S. churches and a missionary teacher in a Christian University in the former Soviet Union. I currectly pastor a church in Minnesota.
What was your motivation behind this project? The idea began as I searched for a basic theology to go over with my two sons, who were in their mid-teens. They were well beyond the basic children's stories, but not ready for heavy-duty theologies. I needed something in between -- a book that taught basic doctrine in brief, understandable sections. I discovered that most books for teens were light,fluffy devotionals. Youth pastors and parents urged me to write a book to help fill the gap, so I did. A second incentive is that many American Christians find less and less teaching available in our churches. But few have the time or inclination to dig through the more massive theologies. So I hope 5 MINUTE THEOLOGIAN is helpful for all ages.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope teens and adults alike will gain a better understanding of core Christian doctrine, and then be motivated to move on to more in-depth study of the Christian faith.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Among many others, I'm thankful for Jonathan Edwards, John Piper and Francis Schaeffer. Schaeffer took lofty ideas and brought them down for ordinary folks to understand. I hope to do something like that with 5 MINUTE THEOLOGIAN.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Two more books will follow in this series: 5 MINUTE APOLOGIST and 5 MINUTE CHURCH HISTORIAN.
