Turning to God deals with conversion. The content of the book centers around the reality that when a person is converted to Christ, there is not simply one part of his or her life that is converted. Conversion, as we have taught, impacts every area of life, though that is not often understood or highlighted as it should be. As a result we fail to see the results in people’s lives that we should.
The author of this booktakes the basic topics of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and traces how they impact us today, but he also sounds the challenge to take the truth of yesterday, build upon it today, and prepare for tomorrow. He clearly expresses what the Reformation was all about.
The author deals with the formulation and development of 32 major doctrines of the Christian faith. Knowing we mustteach our people good sound doctrine is to help them understand how and why this or that is a “major” doctrine vitally important to the Christian faith, as well as our own lives. This is really the heart of the discipleship assigned to the church.
