Introduction to Bible Doctrine was written as a resource to meet the prerequisite requirements of the author’s Textbook on Dispensational Theology: A Textbook on Eschatology in the Twenty-First Century. Supporting Christian foundational truths, the author presents ten traditional doctrines, explaining their context and meaning to the body of Christ—worldwide.
This work is equivalent to a 100 or 200 level college course in Introduction to Biblical Doctrine or Theology, making it useful for local New Testament Churches to use in their adult educational endeavors. Individual Christians will also find this book helpful in summarizing scriptural truths to support Christian faith and practice.
The book is organized around the doctrine of God, Christ, The Holy Spirit, The Scriptures, Humanity, Angels, Salvation, The Church, Heaven and Hell (Good and Evil), and Eschatology.
A Reason for Biblical Study
The reality of Christian living is ongoing spiritual warfare, requiring knowledge of God’s Word to be successful in the struggle, understanding that success comes through God’s truths as revealed within the Scriptures, and acting on them by faith. The Scriptures express it this way, “This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:8-9; NASB)
