About the book

This is more than just a book; it is a road map. It is penned with passion, concern, and thoughtful consideration for its readers. It provides guidance through the wonderful teaching of God’s Word, the Bible, in a systematic and comprehensive way. It does not assume that its readers have a lot of knowledge, and it cuts a careful course through key Old Testament and New Testament aspects of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Readers working their way through this—whether as individuals or in a group—will complete the fifteen chapters with a robust and comprehensive understanding of God-centered Christianity.

Reading audience

  • People who have not heard the gospel
  • New believers, untaught converts
  • Small-group leaders
  • Discipleship ministry coordinators
  • Preachers, ministers
  • Counselors
  • Laypeople


The Quest for Truth is a helpful primer to Christian thought, designed to facilitate evangelism and discipleship through interactive lessons.”
—John MacArthur

“I’m so excited about The Quest for Truth…. I highly recommend it for personal study, small groups, or the classroom!”
—Joni Eareckson Tada

“Here is a book written with simplicity that the reader can work through alone or with others. It leaves no stone unturned in showing, step-by-step, why we all need salvation and why that salvation is in Christ—and in Christ alone!”
—Conrad Mbewe

“You will find this work to be Scripture- based, God-exalting, and Christ-centered. Whether you are a new believer, a mature Christian, or one who is considering the claims of Jesus Christ, I want to urge you to dig into, devour, and digest every page of this critically important book.”
—Steven J. Lawson

Love this book and the author

I’ve gone thru The Quest for Truth a couple times, and the way it builds a foundation of understanding of who God is, what the Word says and where that leaves you, the reader, as a sinner in need of a savior is wonderful. The author himself has lived out the Great Commission with the same love and thoughtfulness represented in this book, having seen it first hand in Uganda. Buy this book and have it handy- it always makes a great discipleship tool or reference book.
