To access this ebook, you may need to follow the steps outlined in our ebook guide.


Christians have already begun to know God and his truth. This handbook will help us grow in that liberating knowledge, as it opens up the great themes of God's Word and shows us how they fit together.

Each chapter looks at one facet of biblical truth and encourages further study with Scripture references to look up, questions for discussion and books for additional reading. The main sections all close with practical reflection on how the Bible's teaching challenges and moves us to adore the living God.

As well as offering updated bibliographies, this new edition responds to recent developments in secular and Christian thinking. It ensures that Know the Truth will remain an excellent introduction to doctrine.

Customer reviews



This book is from a Reformed/Calvinist viewpoint; I am neither. This is an excellent textbook, and would qualify as a mini library on some of these 'big' teachings.I have pastored several churches and have been evangelising the cults (New Religious Movements/Groups) for almost 35 years. I believe that this is a real arsenal to have in a Christian's library. For those, who haven't been able to study at Bible College/Seminary, I believe that this book goes a long way to self-study and prepare to defend our faith - biblically (1 Peter 3:15). It is well worth every penny/cent.
