Christians are defined by our beliefs—yet sometimes we have difficulty explaining the particulars and why we believe them. Is it important to know and explain what we believe, or is agreeing on the essentials enough?
Burk Parsons insists that it is important and helps us to be sure about our beliefs. A confessional resurgence is beginning in the church, and here Burk answers questions about the historic creeds and confessions, providing us with a pastoral explanation of their importance, purpose, and vitality.
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.
Burk Parsons serves as an associate pastor at Saint Andrew’s in Sanford, Florida, and is editor of Tabletalk magazine. He and his wife, Amber, live in central Florida with their children.
“How we know, cherish, and defend authentic Christianity is necessary for the health and integrity of the church and for the discipleship and faithfulness of every Christian. I am thankful to Burk Parsons for this very helpful and timely reminder of the urgent need for creeds and confessions.” — R. Albert Mohler Jr.
“Burk Parsons gently deconstructs muddleheadedness and gives us a fresh appreciation of the necessity and usefulness of the church’s historic creeds.” — Sinclair Ferguson
