Summary: Introduction to the Series.
Vince Lombardi was one who knew the importance of the basics. He once said to his Green Bay Packers holding the pigskin high in the air, he shouted, “Okay, gentlemen, today we go back to the basics. You guys, look at this. This is a football!” This book is about basic truth that both new and mature believers in Christ need. We have often become too complicated and far removed from our foundation. In fact, part of the problem is that many Christians have never been taught these basic truths. My prayer is that this book will at least give us a glimpse of these vital and timeless basics of the Christian life.
