In R.C. Sproul’s Essential Truths of the Christian Faith, over 100 important Christian doctrines are expounded, each in a few succinct pages-from the fall to the return of Christ, from providence to predestination, from sin to the sacraments, from antinomianism to the anti-Christ. Sproul’s homespun analogies and illustrations from contemporary life make this book interesting, informative, and easy to read.

“To be a fool in biblical terms is not to be dim-witted or lacking in intelligence; it is to be immoral. As the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, so the denial of God is the height of foolishness.” (source)
