A good understanding of Christian teaching is important for pastors, missionaries and other church leaders and workers. However, newer Christians, especially those not from church backgrounds, also need grounding in basic beliefs.

Christian Beliefs: 20 Basics Every Christian Should Know is concise and accessible survey, based on the author's larger works, covers key biblical topics with practical application to Christian living, and includes questions for review, historic confessions of faith and suggestions for further reading.
Many Christians today have come to the faith with little or no church background and therefore haven't had much exposure to basic Christian beliefs. God doesn't call every Christian to go off to seminary, but there are certain matters of doctrine - that is, the church's teaching - that every Christian simply must know. Theology is important because what we believe affects how we live.
If you're a relatively new believer in Jesus, or if you're a more mature Christian looking for a quick brush-up on basics of the faith, CHRISTIAN BELIEFS is for you. This readable guide to twenty basic Christian beliefs is a condensation of Wayne Grudem's award-winning book, Systematic Theology, prized by pastors and teachers everywhere. He and his son, Eliot, have boiled down the essentials of Christian theology for the average layperson and made them both clear to understand and applicable to life. You will learn about the Bible, the characteristics of God, how God created humans in his own image, what God has done for us in Christ, the purpose of the church, and much more. Each chapter includes questions for personal review or group discussion.
These truly are twenty basic beliefs that every Christian should know. Wayne Grudem is a master teacher with the ability to explain profound truths in simple language. He is a man of deep conviction and theological passion - and those who read this book will be both educated and encouraged in the faith.
Wayne A. Grudem (Ph.D., University of Cambridge) is research professor of Bible and theology at Phoenix Seminary, Scottsdale, Arizona.
