Many people today shy away from the word "doctrine." However, sound doctrine is simply "healthy teaching," and is foundational for quality Christian living. As one man so eloquently said, "Doctrine is the skeleton of our faith. All other issues hang on it." If a book on doctrine is well crafted, impassioned and true to the Word of God then it should not only be a good read, but indeed a must read. Such is the book that you hold in your hands. This practical book unravels the layers of man's opinion placed on the truth of God over time that have resulted in much confusion. It covers such vital concepts as salvation and its eternal nature, sin in the Christian life, and the true foundation for assurance. It brings us face to face with God's promises to not only save us by His grace but to keep us Secure Forever. Dr. Thomas M.
