This ‘is one of the most important growth points of the Christians life’, writes Sinclair B. Ferguson. From this starting point, The Christian Life expounds such key biblical themes as grace, faith, repentance, new birth and assurance with clarity and contagious enthusiasm. ‘Christian doctrines are life-shaping’, explains the author, because ‘they show us the God we worship.’

Widely used and appreciated since its first appearance, The Christian Life provides the reader with the essential ‘nuts and bolts’ of Christian doctrine. It not only expounds the teaching of Scripture, but outlines its meaning for practical Christian living.

Endorsement 

"Ractical, applying the Bible teaching with insight and wisdom to the condition of plain people. Christian beginners will get the benefit and the Lord’s older sheep, grown tough and stringy maybe, will find themselves edified and perhaps tenderized too." - J. I. Packer
