You've heard of Reformed theology, but you're not certain what it is. Some references to it have been positive, some negative. It appears to be important, and you'd like to know more about it.

You want a full explanation, not a simplistic, patronizing one. You grapple with difficult and complex issues every day, but you haven't studied theology formally and learned all the necessary terms and concepts. You want to know more, but who will help?

R.C. Sproul has made theology understandable and exciting to ordinary people for decades, and he knows Reformed theology inside and out. When he speaks and writes, he often refers to Reformed theology. For years people have asked him what it is. This book is his first book-length answer to this question.
