In this updated volume of his popular 30 Days series, Dr. Max Anders presents the essential truths of Christianity in the clear, conversational style his readers have come to expect. 30 Days to Understanding What Christians Believe gives you a comprehensive overview of the fundamental Christian doctrines and beliefs-in just 15 minutes a day!

Using memorable examples and down-to-earth language, Dr. Anders explains the ten major subjects of systematic theology: the Bible, God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, angels, man, sin, salvation, the church, and future things.

This self-guided study can be easily adapted for Bible study groups and church classes. Learners will build a foundation of truth that will enhance their walk with Christ and lay the groundwork for a deeper investigation of Bible doctrine.

“Finally, and very importantly, this book is not intended to be the last book on doctrine you ever read. Rather, it is intended, in a sense, to be the first. After this overview, details need to be added. I would like to recommend three books for further reading and, if this is new to you, I would read them in this order: Know What You Believe by Paul Little (Victor Books, 1985), Concise Theology by James I. Packer (Tyndale, 1993), and A Survey of Bible Doctrine by Charles C. Ryrie (Moody, 1972).” (Page xii)

“Gaining a deeper grasp of the Bible is a two-way street. It is true that it will not happen unless the Holy Spirit illumines the mind of the Christian, but neither will it happen unless the Christian is diligent in pursuing biblical knowledge. The more the Christian reads and studies the Bible, the more the Holy Spirit will illumine his or her mind, which encourages the student to read and study further.” (Page 16)

“Second, we suffer because of a natural cause-and-effect relationship with sin.” (Page 129)

“Man’s natural ability to grasp and embrace the information in the Bible is limited. Much of it is spiritual information that man does not readily understand or accept. To overcome this fact, the Holy Spirit gradually illumines the receptive mind to understand and embrace more and more of the Bible, as the Christian matures in his or her spiritual walk.” (Pages 15–16)

“This is a primary role of the Holy Spirit . . . to work with us in a mystical sort of way to become Christians and then to grow as Christians. He transforms us from what we were like in the past to what we should be like in the future.” (Page 40)
