Understanding the Faith: A Workbook for Communicants Classes and Others (ESV)
"It is important that my children know the scriptural reasons for what we believe. It is not enough for them to recite facts; they need to know why we believe what we do. Understanding the Faith is an excellent tool for accomplishing this purpose, not just for children, but also for adults. I recommend it for use in communicants classes, in Sunday School, or for teaching in the home."See All
"Steve Smallman's communicant-class lessons logically and enjoyably explained church membership. I emerged from his class with a richer understanding of Scripture and the Christian faith. Even after graduating from college with a degree in religion, I still find Understanding the Faith to be an excellent resource and a reminder of what church membership is all about."See All
