Solid Grounding for a Growing Faith
By Adrian Rogers with Steve Rogers

OVERVIEW: Whether you are just beginning your faith journey, or have been a believer for decades, What Every Christian Ought to Know will help establish you in the core Truths of the Bible, equip you to confidently articulate your faith, and empower you to live a dynamic Christian life. In his refreshingly relatable style, Dr. Rogers covers essential topics such as salvation, eternal security, prayer, the Holy Spirit, resisting temptation, and finding God's will, and unpacks their practical application for your every day Christian walk. One of Adrain Roger's most popular books, this new edition includes an introduction from Steve Rogers, president of the Adrian Rogers Pastor Training Institute, plus discussion questions for personal reflection or group study.

AUTHORS: ADRIAN ROGERS was one of America's most respected Bible teachers, communicating to millions through his Love Worth finding radio and television ministry that continues today. He was also senior pastor of the 27,000-member Bellevue Baptist Church near Memphis, Tennessee, and a popular author whose books include Unveiling the End Times in Our time and The Incredible Power of Kingdom Authority.

STEVE ROGERS is president of the Adrian Rogers Pastor Training Institute.

MY REVIEW: Christians need solid grounding for their faith. This book will help with that. I say help because I believe that saying, help establish your faith is closer to the truth than saying, will establish your faith. I have great respect for Adrian Rogers and what he teaches in this excellent book. I do not however, agreed with every point of doctrine.

It is not my place in this review to state the few points of doctrine I disagree with. Not because I do not strongly disagree ―because in a few places, I do! But this is the kind of book you need to read with an open mind and study the Scriptures and the interpretations of the author and decide for yourself what is truth.

This is a book that I gladly recommend as one that will help you become a better student of the Word. There are study questions at the end of every chapter which makes the book a good resource for small study groups.
