Remembering the Faith: What Christians Believe

Many Christians today neither know the full content of their faith nor could articulate the historical doctrines of the church. Remembering the Faith offers help by providing a brief and highly readable introduction to the basic teachings of the Christian faith. Douglas Brouwer canvasses the full range of Christian belief-from the nature of revelation to the doctrines of God, the Trinity, creation, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, sanctification, and the meaning of the sacraments-discussing each as it developed historically and showing why such fundamental statements of faith continue to be important today.

Throughout each chapter are excerpts from the historical confessions, creeds, and catechisms, as well as selected quotes from theologians and poets. “Brouwer, pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Wheaton, Illinois, organizes the book thematically, with chapters on “Where We Find God,” “Who Jesus Is,” “Three Persons, One God,” and “Last Things,” among other topics. His careful and gentle reasoning and pastoral tone (he understands those who doubt and wonder) makes the book a pleasurable and informative read–and another useful book for group study.”- Christianity Today
