MacArthur adds to the list of entry-level Christian primers. But instead of avoiding controversy, as did C.S. Lewis's MERE CHRISTANITY, or simply giving persuasive evidence, such as John Stott's BASIC CHRISTIANITY, this title brings infant Christians to the next level and frustrated Christians back to basics. Scott Grunden persuasively presents this reworking of MacArthur's FIRST LOVE. With his confident tone he helps to bring these timeless but sometimes-neglected Christian truths to a wider audience. He narrates the text in the spirit of MacArthur without voicing the latter's bold emphasis on important points but still giving the sense of faithfully rendering the text—except when referring to verses as chapters in the chapterless book of Jude.
