Book Review ~ What Every Christian Ought to Know by Adrian Rogers with Steve Rogers

Adrian Rogers with Steve Rogers
Non Fiction/Christian Doctrine

Back of the book:

Let your faith take root.

Whether you are just beginning your faith journey, or have been a believer for decades, What Every Christian Ought to Know will establish you in the core Truths of the Bible, equip you to confidently articulate your faith, and empower you to live a dynamic Christian life. In his refreshingly relatable style, Dr. Rogers covers essential topics such as salvation, eternal security, prayer, the Holy Spirit, resisting temptation, and finding God’s will, and unpacks their practical application for your everyday Christian walk.

One of Adrian Roger’s most popular books, this new edition includes an introduction from Steve Rogers, president of the Adrian Rogers Pastor Training Institute, plus discussion questions for personal reflection or group study.

About the author:

For over fifty years, Adrian Rogers consistently presented the Good News of Jesus Christ with strong conviction, compassion and integrity. One of America’s most respected Bible teachers, he communicated to millions through his Love Worth Finding radio and television ministry that continues to be broadcasted today in more than 150 countries around the world. Dr. Rogers was also senior pastor of Bellevue Baptist Church near Memphis.

A leader in his denomination, serving three terms as president of the Southern Baptist Convention, Dr. Rogers was honored to be inducted into the prestigious Hall of Fame in 2003 by the National Religious Broadcasters. He passed away in 2005. His son Steve Rogers continues to run Love Worth Finding, as well as the Adrian Rogers Pastor Training Institute. Dr. Rogers is also survived by his wife Joyce, three other children, nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

My thoughts:

Several years ago my family was unable to attend a local church for about a year. Every Sunday we would gather together in front of the TV and tune in Love Worth Finding and listen to Dr. Rogers broadcast. One of my absolute favorite things about this book is that I could “hear” his voice as I was reading his words. Even though he is no longer with us, his legacy lives on.

This is a rerelease of this book which was originally published in 2005. According to the book the original content was held intact. The only addition has been added discussion questions. 

When I read a book I use sticky notes in the book to remind me of important passages that I want to go back and read again. This book looks like a porcupine with all the tabs sticking out of it! I have been a Christian since I was nine years old so the contents that are contained within are not new concepts to me. But it was a wonderful refresher course. I found myself continually saying…oh yeah, that is why I believe what I believe.

This would be a wonderful gift for a new believer. But I have to say, as a seasoned Christ follower, I loved reading through it and basking in the immensity of the plan that God has for each of us. I think after you read it you will agree with me that the book should be a staple in every church library and every personal library. It would be an excellent resource to use in your personal study times.
