Essential Christian Doctrine – A Handbook on Biblical Truth
Edited by John Macarthur
A Concise Summary of Biblical Truth by John MacArthur
Doctrine not only equips you with more knowledge about God, it also shapes your affections toward him and directs your actions for him—but it can be difficult to know where to begin.
This concise handbook, developed from John MacArthur’s larger work Biblical Doctrine, is an entry point for studying theological topics such as the Bible, the Holy Spirit, the church, and more. As MacArthur walks through the essentials of the Christian faith doctrine by doctrine, he’ll not only encourage your heart and mind, but also empower you to proclaim the faith that was “once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3).
Systematizing the robust theology that has served as the foundation for John MacArthur’s well-known preaching ministry, this resource surveys theological topics such as the Bible, the Holy Spirit, salvation, the church, and more.
John MacArthur is the pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, where he has served since 1969. He is known around the world for his
