About This Book

Called to Believe is an abridgment and condensation of the more comprehensive text, Called to Believe, Teach, and Confess. It offers an accessible, introductory overview of the major doctrines of Christianity. Written from a Lutheran Christian perspective, this book is a helpful resource for those within that tradition and to others who seek a deeper and broader understanding of Christian teaching. Firmly rooted in Scripture, this book directs the reader back to the Bible. It emphasizes the interrelatedness of all Christian teachings, with its central teaching being the doctrine of justification by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. It also includes the text of the three ecumenical creeds accompanied by a brief introduction to their historical background.This book is ideal as an introductory text for university or advanced high school students and for other Christian adults who seek to expand their knowledge of God's revelation and its application in human lives. It introduces and uses classic theological vocabulary and terminology, while offering clear definitions and application. Key terms, study questions, and a glossary help make this a valuable resource. Suggested readings from Scripture, and secondary sources guide the reader into deeper study.

thus 
be 
equipped 
for 
every 
good 
work 
(2 
Timothy 
3:17).
As 
the 
biblical 
message 
comes 
to 
believers 
through 
apostles, 
prophets, 
evangelists, 
pastors, 
and 
teachers, 
the 
saints 
are 
equipped 
for 
service 
in 
Christ’s 
kingdom. 
They 
are 
ediÔ¨Āed¬†
so 
that 
they 
might 
become 
one 
in 
their 
faith, 
in 
their 
knowledge 
of 
God’s 
Son, 
and 
that 
they 
might 
grow 
in 
maturity 
of 
faith. 
The 
Scriptures 
will 
prevent 
them 
from 
being 
tossed 
to 
and 
fro 
with 
every 
wind 
of 
cunning, 
crafty, 
deceitful 
view 
of 
life. 
Instead, 
they 
will 
be 
maturing 
in 
Christ, 
and 
they 
will 
speak 
God’s 
truth 
to 
one 
another 
in 
love. 
They 
will 
be 
joined 
together 
in 
Christ’s 
body, 
which 
he 
supplies 
with 
the 
power 
of 
his 
word 
in 
order 
to 
make 
sure 
that 
his 
body 
continues 
to 
grow 
(Ephesians 
4:11‚Äď16).
