THE HENDRICKSON TOPICAL BIBLE: A SURVEY OF ESSENTIAL CHRISTIAN DOCTRINES: Keyed to the NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION | NIV
Edited by WALTER A. ELWELL
Paradoxically, many people today that identify themselves as Christian remain woefully
ignorant of foundational Christian doctrines. This prevents them from being thoroughly grounded in their faith, and hinders their ability to explain or defend it.
First published by Baker as Topical Analysis of the Bible, this unparalleled resource addresses the need for understanding basic Christian teachings. It makes the theological content of the Bible accessible to a wide audience, in an easy to follow format. Fifteen key Christian doctrines are explored in this book. Each section begins with a detailed outline that enables the reader to zero in on a specific aspect of the topic, followed by complete-not simply book, chapter and verse-citations.
Another benefit of this work is that it puts the in-depth background information ministers need to preach and teach the Scriptures at their fingertips. Now they can quickly retrieve what they need for sermons, for teaching or evangelistic talks.
