Publisher's Summary

What Do All Christians Believe?

For many people, words like doctrine and theology cause their eyes to glaze over, or they find them difficult to understand and struggle to see how they are relevant to daily life. But theology is far from boring; it is the study of God and should lead to awe and wonder as we better understand who God is and what he has done for us.

In Core Christianity, author, pastor, and theologian Mike Horton tackles the essential and basic beliefs that all Christians share. What is core to the Christian faith? In addition to unpacking these beliefs in a way that is easy to understand, Horton shows why they matter to our lives today.

This introduction to the basic doctrines of Christianity is a helpful guide by a respected theologian and a popular author, and it includes discussion questions for individual or group use. Core Christianity is perfect for those who are new to the faith as well as those who have an interest in deepening in their understanding of what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ.

Fantastic Introduction to the Christian Faith

Whether you are a "seeker", a new Christian, or a seasoned believer this book is for you; it doesn't just lay out the systematic truths of the faith but shows that Christians are part of a larger story. This story includes Drama (the unfolding of God's story through history), Doctrine (the truths that are drawn from this story), doxology (the worship that arises from the story) and discipleship (the result of this worship). Horton does an excellent job of showing the covenantal structure of God's drama. Whether you are a dispensationalist, covenantalist or progressive covenantalist I believe you will benefit from his treatment. Christianity is first and foremost about Jesus and Horton ably shows us why this is the best news we could ever hear.

Perhaps the best primer on the Christian Faith!

A brilliant author and an excellent reader are hard to come by. Yet this is what you will find in Core Christianity by Dr. Horton. The author takes the listener/reader through a journey of our story as written by God in a manner that is easy-to-use stand without feeling like it's shallow. At the end of the book, one can only come away with a better grasp of the Bible, its God and a call to enjoy him.
