Available for the first time in paperback, one of the last books written by revered late pastor Adrian Rogers is also one of his best-selling, a bold yet approachable guide to the ABCs of Christianity that Publishers Weekly calls, “(a) beautifully simple primer on essential truths.”

What Every Christian Ought to Know provides readers with a well- organized, well-reasoned grasp of such topics as salvation, eternal security, prayer, the Holy Spirit, resisting temptation, finding God’s will, as well as the authority of the Bible and how to understand it better. A valuable volume for new Christians and young disciples, it’s also a suitably instructive resource for believers of all ages.

This new edition includes an introduction from Steve Rogers, president of the Adrian Rogers Pastor Training Institute, plus discussion questions for personal reflection or group study.

My take on this book;

Whether your just beginning your walk as a christian or perhaps your looking for a book that will refresh and remind you of the basics of faith, look no further than this book. 

Whenever I look for a book that will help me grow in my christian walk the first thing I want is something that is easy to read and understand, and that's just what I found in "What Every Christian Ought To Know."It's a book that deals with basic truths that every christian needs to gain a closer spiritual walk with God.  There are twelve chapters each touching on topics such as the assurance of salvation, how to handle temptation, and what to do if we sin. Each chapter opens with a scripture, then goes into a discussion of the topic being discussed and then there are study questions to wrap up the chapter. I found each chapter had sufficient scripture reference to allow for further reading.

Overall, I thought the title of the epilogue really said it best, It's Not What You Know, It's How Much You Grow, and if your looking to grow your spiritual knowledge then this book is for you. I really think this book would be great for group study. I also feel as if it would be a great gift for a new christian. 

A complimentary copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review.
