"For many people the word theology suggests seminary-educated scholars who sit in ivory towers, isolated from the real world, studying the Bible. Such study is often viewed as esoteric and unrelated to the world where men and women live, work, play, raise families, and struggle with the realities of day-to-day life.

Nothing could be further from the truth." ---Tony Evans

What we think about God, also known as theology, influences what we believe, do, and say. And what we think, whether true or false, makes a big difference in real life.

Tony Evans wants you to know the truth about God, so Theology You Can Count On communicates truths about God in language you can understand. He walks through what the Bible teaches, topic by topic, truth by truth. The great thing is, these truths aren't reserved for people with PhDs. They're for real life. They're for you.


^is written to real people facing real problems," says Tony Evans.  "That's ^why Theology You Can Count On offers theology in bite-size nuggets: short ^chapters with illustrations that make theology easier to understand.

Because ^he wants readers to apply God's Word to their lives, Dr. Evans moves beyond explaining ^what theology means to showing what theology does in the lives of those who embrace ^the teachings of Scripture--giving release from the past, power in the present, ^and hope for the future. 

Dr. Evans tackles some of the tough questions:
-Why ^does a holy and powerful God allow evil?
-If God is sovereign and has already ^determined everything that will happen according to what pleases Him, then ^why do we need to choose?
-If Satan is real, how do I fight against him?

His ^answers offer reasons, yet he acknowledges the whole counsel of God is not ours ^to know.  Along the way, he wields story, humor, and metaphor to help ^us understand better the nature and plans of God and His Son, Jesus, as well as ^the roles of the Bible, the Holy Spirit, the church, and prophecy in declaring truth ^to the world in the twenty-first century.

Each chapter ends with personal ^application as well as group questions that help you explore the subjects deeper ^and unlock related Scripture.  The book is ideal for private or small-group ^study.

Dr. Evans applies theology to daily life in this volume ^based on eight classic books from his Understanding God series.  "The study ^of God is the most meaningful pursuit in life," he says.  Begin your pursuit ^today. 


What we think about God, also known as theology, influences what we believe, ^do, and say. And what we think, whether true or false, makes a big difference in ^real life. Tony Evans wants you to know the truth about God, so Theology You Can ^Count On communicates truths about God in language you can understand. He walks ^through what the Bible teaches, topic by topic, truth by truth.

DR. TONY EVANS is the founder and president of The Urban Alternative, ^a national ministry dedicated to restoring hope in personal lives, families, churches ^and communities. Dr. Evans also serves as senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship ^in Dallas. He is a bestselling author of numerous books and his radio program, The ^Alternative with Dr. Tony Evans, is heard on more than 500 stations every day. ^For more information, visit: tonyevans.org.
