Just as plants need certain essentials to grow—light, water and fertile soil—so do
Christians who want to develop strong spiritual roots and bear good fruit.
That's why revered late pastor Dr. Adrian Rogers wrote What Every Christian
Ought to Know: Solid Grounding for a Growing Faith (B&H Books)—to give
believers the nurture and care their faith needs to blossom and grow. In this
vital resource for both new Christians and seasoned saints, Dr. Rogers offers
readers intellectual truth while also providing them with the "spiritual
nutrients" required to produce mature faith.
"There are some basic truths every Christian ought to know," wrote Dr. Rogers. "Many flounder in a sea of moral relativism and vague religious opinions [and they] don't grow because they don't know. Facts are like a recipe, but truth is like a meal. Digest a truth and it will change your life."
Now available for the first time in paperback, What Every Christian Ought to Know is a bold yet approachable guide to the ABCs of Christianity. One of the last books written by Dr. Rogers and also one of his best-selling, Publishers Weekly calls it a "beautifully simple
primer on essential truths." Dr. Rogers provides readers with a well-organized,
well-reasoned grasp of such topics as salvation, eternal security, prayer, the
Holy Spirit, resisting temptation and finding God's will, as well as the
authority of the Bible and how to understand it better. While a valuable volume
for new Christians and young disciples, it's also a suitably instructive
resource for believers of all ages. This new edition also includes an
introduction from Steve Rogers, president of the Adrian Rogers Pastor Training
Institute, plus discussion questions for personal reflection or group study.
