WWFAU Book Cover

Walking with the Full Assurance of Understanding has been written to provide Christians who are serious about their faith what Paul called: “the wealth that comes from the full assurance of understanding.” In its pages readers will find the central truths, logic, and promise of Christianity necessary for a confident, stable, and fruitful walk with God.

No one knew better than John Wesley that it is one thing to know Scripture, quite another to understand it. Even as a missionary to Georgia, well-schooled in the faith by a clergyman father, a devout mother, and his studies at Oxford, Wesley remained unaware of the full meaning of Scripture. It was understanding that unlocked the power of God’s work in his life.

Given the multitude of negative influences both from secular culture and within the Christian community, there has never been a greater need to avoid the false teachings of philosophy, popular but mistaken beliefs, and poor assumptions. The information and insights presented here will enable twenty-first century Christians to avoid being “carried about by every wind of doctrine” by understanding the treasure they have in God, Jesus Christ, and the Scriptures.

Especially helpful for Christian workers, students, and lay persons who are serious about knowing their faith.
