THE IMPORTANCE OF BIBLE DOCTRINE

The following is excerpted from the Advanced Bible Studies Series course “Give Attendance to Doctrine,” which is available from Way of Life Literature.
The word “doctrine” simply means teaching. Bible doctrine, therefore, refers to the teaching of the Scriptures. Since the days of the apostles, Bible-believing people have had an emphasis upon sound doctrine, but today doctrine is often downplayed in favor of ecumenical unity. The following statement by popular singer Pat Boone, a charismatic, typifies the attitude that is common among ecumenists: “Doctrine divides, experience unites. We don’t all have our doctrine all completely correct, but God doesn’t judge us on our understanding of doctrine.” (August 17, 2001).

We are pleased to announce the second edition of the Understanding the Bible commentary set by Pastor David Sorenson, Northstar Baptist Church, Duluth, Minnesota.
Dr. Sorenson labored on this project for over ten years. He is a third-generation fundamental Baptist preacher who in preparation for this work has read the Bible through over 200 times. He is a pastor, church planter, soul winner, church builder, and a widely-read author whose writing style is eminently readable.
The 11-volume hardbound commentary set is 8,368 pages long.
The commentary is also available on a CD-ROM.
It is a new and refreshing commentary, conservative, solid, fundamentalist, and based on the King James Bible.
Understanding the Bible has one purpose: to help a reader understand the Word of God. It endeavors to give the sense of any given passage of Scripture and help a reader to understand the reading (Nehemiah 8:8).
Understanding the Bible was not written for scholars or academia but for pastors and Christian workers out on the firing line. Nevertheless, scholarship and accurate exposition of the Scriptures are intrinsic. Sunday School teachers, church staff, Christian school teachers, home schoolers, and any student of the Word of God will also find Understanding the Bible to be most helpful.
Understanding the Bible is unique in that it is:
Dispensational in theology
Pre-Trib Rapture Pre-millennial
King James/traditional-text based
Baptism by immersion
Six-day literal creation
Literal in hermeneutics
Concise style of writing
Discreet use of original languages
Tackles difficult passages
Comprehensive and expositional
Useful for pastors and laymen
In Distinction to:
Covenant/reformed in theology
Mid or post Trib Rapture Post or amillennial
Baptism by sprinkling
Theistic evolution or gap theory
Verbose or cryptic writing styles
None or overbearing use of original languages
Avoiding difficult passages
Technical, homiletical, or exhaustive
Useful only to academicians
11-volume print edition -- $325.00
CD-ROM edition - $125.00
The second edition contains no substantive changes, just ongoing polishing and editing.
