"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. HaykinProfessor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
