Basics for Believers

The Core of Christian Faith & Life
A Study of Philippians
By D.A. Carson

My Thoughts

Wonderfully insightful and applicable, this book will help the new Christian and the seasoned Christian understand the basics. There’s always something new to learn. I love the personable feel of this book. The author is sometimes blunt and to the point but it’s such an effective way to communicate the message. It is easy to read, understand and apply the lessons. The book of Philippians came alive to me in a new way.

The book is divided into 5 sections:
1. Put the Gospel first.
2. Focus on the Cross
3. Adopt Jesus’s Death as a Test of your Outlook
4. Emulate Worthy Christian Leaders
5. Never Give up the Christian Walk.

I was encouraged and challenged throughout this book. It is definitely one I will go back to in the future.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher. I was in no way required to write a positive review. All thoughts are my own.
