Unless you know how to read it, shorthand is little more than mysterious curlicues and squiggles. Likewise, many of the important words and concepts in the New Testament can be just as puzzling. Now Wiersbe provides easy-to-grasp explanations, meanings, and life applications for theological terms like justification, sanctification, and spiritual adoption. Great for new believers! 128 pages, softcover from Baker.
The biblical shorthand of theological language is useful for expressing complicated doctrines-but only for those who understand it. Key Words of the Christian Life de-mystifies words and concepts like "justification," "sanctification," and "adoption into the family of God" for lay readers.
Each chapter focuses on a New Testament word or phrase that has important implications for the believer's life and faith. Warren Wiersbe gives easy-to-grasp explanations of each word's theological meaning, along with practical application for the Christian life. Wiersbe's careful teaching will be invaluable to everyone from new believers to those looking for resources to teach others the powerful implications of key Bible words.
