Blogging Through Biblical DoctrineHave you wanted to read a theology book, but haven’t known where to begin? In this series, Jess is blogging through John MacArthur and Richard Mayhue’s book, Biblical Doctrine. Print the study guides at the bottom of each post (or on the Resources page) and follow along! Also, be sure to join the associated women’s Facebook page to discuss the study with other Christian women. Finally, if you want to go back and start at the beginning you may find the Introduction article here.

It serves as a good reminder, and presents a good question for us to ask ourselves: Am I treating my fellow man (my unbelieving neighbors, my own children, my students, my co-workers, the homeless, the needy) as an image bearer of God?
