Many Christians think that the word "doctrine" automatically describes something either beyond their comprehension or something of no use in everyday life. Practical Christian living, however, cannot be divorced from biblical knowledge and teaching. All believers must have a foundation built upon the truths of God's Word.
J. Dwight Pentecost presents fourteen key biblical doctrines and explains them in practical, everyday terms for the general Christian reader. Those doctrines include grace, repentance, redemption, sanctification, security, and predestination.
