Rick Cornish’s 5 Minute Theologian: Maximum Truth in Minimum Time explains 100 essential beliefs of the Christian faith in short, five-minute daily readings. In 5 Minute Theologian: Maximum Truth in Minimum Time, Cornish seeks to endow the average churchgoer with a solid foundation for their faith by summarizing theological topics in an accessible, easy-to-read devotional style. Cornish’s work is a primer for deep theological study, and his simple yet profound explanations of God, sin, grace, election, and other fundamental concepts will allow you to understand your faith in a way that helps guard against the half-truths and lies so prevalent in today’s society.

In the Logos Bible Software edition, all Scripture passages in 5 Minute Theologian: Maximum Truth in Minimum Time are tagged—they appear on mouse-over. This makes the resource easier to access and more powerful than ever before for personal Bible study. The connections between the practical methods found in this volume and your preferred Bible, the Passage Guide, and the other Bible study tools in Logos Bible Software allow you to dive into Bible study with a significant base of knowledge right in front of you.

Praise for the Print Edition

Rick Cornish, with his 100 essays, makes it easy for us to keep God’s Word on our hearts daily and gives us the tools to discuss the deep things of God.

—Steve Largent, former US congressman

I have found these readings to be clear, accurate, well-chosen, and personally stimulating, covering the topics appropriately. I highly recommend this book.

Craig Blomberg, distinguished professor of New Testament, Denver Seminary

Spirituality without understanding is not faith; it is superstition. In 5 Minute Theologian, Rick Cornish serves up reader-friendly and character-enriching insights. I strongly recommend these highlights of classical Christianity. I want to send copies to my children and grandchildren!

—Gordon R. Lewis, senior professor of systematic theology and Christian philosophy, Denver Seminary
