Biblical Theology: How the Church Faithfully Teaches the Gospel (Nick Roark & Robert Cline) — One of the most important safeguards against false gospels is an understanding of biblical theology: reading the Bible in light of its main message, culminating in Jesus Christ.

Biblical Theology in the Life of the Church (Michael Lawrence) — Lays out biblical theology in four areas: counseling, missions, caring for the poor, and church/state relations.

The Whole Truth about God: Biblical Theology (Bobby Jamieson) — When churches center everything they do on God’s Word—when the pulpit ministry gives direction to every aspect of the church’s life—growth happens God’s way. God’s Word is what creates the church, and it’s what sustains it, too.
