Living for God

Author: Mark Jones

"Primers like this―a trenchant reminder of the vital matters that lie at the heart of the Christian faith―are ever needful, and especially so in this theologically befuddled generation that is far too often heedless of the value of the past. Highly recommended!"
Michael A. G. Haykin, Professor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

What difference should doctrine make on our day-to-day Christian life? This book summarizes Christianity in 5 core truths the Trinity, the Son of God, the Spirit, the church, and heaven and hell to show how theology is intended to bring people closer to God. Drawing from writers throughout church history particularly St. Augustine, Richard Baxter, and C. S. Lewis this book summarizes the building blocks of pure Christianity and how they shape minds, hearts, and actions, so readers can know simply and concisely what it means to live for God.
