A reader-friendly guide to Christian doctrines--for new believers and all ChristiansWayne Grudem's Systematic Theology has established itself as a foundational reference in the evangelical church today.
Many Christians today have come to the faith with little or no church background and therefore haven't had much exposure to basic Christian beliefs. God doesn't call every Christian to go off to seminary, but there are certain matters of doctrine — that is, the church's teaching — that every Christian simply must know.
Theology is important because what we believe affects how we live. If you're a relatively new believer in Jesus, or if you're a more mature Christian looking for a quick brushup on basics ... more

From Genesis we know that God created men and women in His image and likeness, and from the first letter of John that "God is love." Therefore men and women are made in the image and likeness of Love. This isn't hard to see. Look at the design of the male and female bodies. They are made for each other. In fact, neither makes complete sense apart from the other. The man's body is made for a woman's body - made to be a life-giving gift to her; her body reveals his calling - and vice versa. In this book - which utilizes a dynamic, "flip" book design to be "two books in one" well-known chastity speaker and author Jason Evert unpacks the mystery of what is means to be male and female in light of the Theology of the Body in a ... more

Popular pastor and worldwide speaker Matt Chandler writes his first book to remind the church of what is of first and utmost importance--the gospel.
Too few people attending church today, even those in evangelical churches, are rarely exposed to the gospel explicitly. Sure, many will hear about Jesus, and about being good and avoiding bad, but the gospel message simply isn't there--at least not in its specificity and its fullness.
Inspired by the needs of both the overchurched and the unchurched, and bolstered by the common neglect of the explicit gospel within Christianity, Matt Chandler has written this punchy treatise. He begins with the specifics of the gospel--outlining what it is and what it is not--and then ... more

This newest addition to the IXMarks series presents a clear, straightforward statement of the gospel, the third mark of a healthy church.
What is the gospel? It seems like a simple question, yet it has been known to incite some heated responses, even in the church. How are we to formulate a clear, biblical understanding of the gospel? Tradition, reason, and experience all leave us ultimately disappointed. If we want answers, we must turn to the Word of God.
Greg Gilbert does so in What Is the Gospel? Beginning with Paul's systematic presentation of the gospel in Romans and moving through the sermons in Acts, Gilbert argues that the central structure of the gospel consists of four main subjects: God, man, Christ, a ... more
