Beliefs

Christian Beliefs: Twenty Basics Every Christian Should Know, by Wayne Grudem. Based on his large systematic theology textbook, Grudem summarizes twenty basic beliefs of the Christian faith in 2-3 pages per belief. A great book to begin exploring further what the Bible teaches.

The God Who is There: Finding Your Place in God's Story, by D. A. Carson. While Grudem's book looks at logical beliefs based on various verses throughout Scripture, Carson's book walks the reader through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, helping you understand the basic message of each portion of Scripture. Excellent book to help you understand your Bible as a whole.
