Good Christian doctrine is not simply getting the facts right: it is something transformative, brought to life in obedience to Christ.

In his letter to Titus, the Apostle Paul implores the reader to take truth seriously and to ensure that the good news of gospel is being passed on in its full force. Solid Christian doctrine and a passion for godly Christian life are twin themes weave their way throughout this short epistle.

In Living Doctrine, Danny Akin unpacks this powerful message and shows how these themes are still vital for Christians today. Accessibly written but informed by deep scholarship, this book will benefit readers from all walks of life. Like the biblical book it covers, Living Doctrine is concise, gospel-centered, and immensely practical.
