Ryken, Philip Graham
Soli deo gloria. This familiar phrase has been used since the Reformation to convey the truth that our purpose for existence is God's glory alone. In a time when so many are seeking a reason to live, this booklet offers a concise understanding of the concept of God's glory, God's desire to restore his nature in us, so that we may reflect his glory in our words, our actions, and our very being.
Basics of the Faith booklets introduce readers to basic Reformed doctrine and practice. On issues of church government and practice they reflect that framework—otherwise they are suitable for all church situations.

"Those who teach and lead will love these booklets because they are a perfect resource to share with inquirers and to use in discipleship. Church members will love them because they supply meaty and understandable instruction in important aspects of Christian doctrine, duty, and devotion." — Ligon Duncan
