Foundations for Your Faith is Dr. D. James Kennedy’s most extensive theological exposition of the basic doctrines of the Christian faith. In 462 pages and 24 chapters, Dr. Kennedy lays out the purpose for man’s existence (Part 1: Created for Glory), God’s plan for our salvation (Part 2: Saved by Grace), and how the redeemed Christian should live (Part 3: Purposed for Good Works). In addition, in the final chapter, “Transforming Truths,” Dr. Kennedy exposits the Westminster Confession of Faith, drawing from both the Shorter and the Larger catechisms to provide an overview of one of the most significant creedal documents of the Protestant church.
As Dr. Kennedy stated, “For a Christian, the study of God, of salvation, and of living is a study of what we can see with eyes fixed upon Jesus. Further, the only way to see what hinders and what sins entangle—the excess baggage of our past and present—is to look upon Jesus, rather than upon ourselves.”
With complete indexes of both the content and the scriptures quoted, as well as pages at the back of the book for personal notes, this volume is ideally designed for intensive personal study and will richly reward any Christian believer who takes the time to thoroughly digest its contents.
