Book Description:

Christian doctrine matters for Christian living. This is 'one of the most important growth points of the Christian life', writes Sinclair B. Ferguson. From this starting point, The Christian Life expounds such key biblical themes as grace, faith, repentance, new birth and assurance with clarity and contagious enthusiasm. 'Christian doctrines are life-shaping', explains the author, because 'they show us the God we worship'. Widely used and appreciated since its first appearance, The Christian Life not only expounds the teaching of Scripture, but outlines its meaning for practical Christian living.

Sinclair Buchanan Ferguson held the position of the Charles Krahe chair for Systematic Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary, and served as pastor to congregations in both Scotland and in the United States. A well-published author with a deep understanding of Scripture, Sinclair Ferguson books range from Child in the Manger, where Ferguson shares the true meaning of Christmas with impeccable scholarship and worshipful adoration, to From the Mouth of God, where he helps readers to trust, read and apply the lessons of the Bible as he answers questions Christians often wonder about. Sinclair Ferguson's Sermon on the Mount has been called the "perfect blend of scholarship and inspiration…a truly valuable book" by Book Journal, while Devoted to God has been labeled as "brilliant," one "fit to enter the rare company of the Christian classics." Ferguson himself described material found in Devoted to God as "blueprints for sanctification."


Theology that is 'practical, applying Bible teaching with insight and wisdom to the condition of plain people. Christian beginners will get the benefit and the Lord's older sheep, grown tough and stringy maybe, will find themselves edified and perhaps tenderised too'.
