Where to Purchase
If someone asked you, "What do I need to believe to be a Christian?" what would you say?
At a time when truth is up for grabs, a journalist-turned-pastor wants to help you understand what you believe and why. How? By using the simple lyrics to a beloved song:
"Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so."
In this winsome book, bestselling author John S. Dickerson clearly and faithfully explains essential Christian beliefs and powerfully illustrates why these beliefs matter. Whether you're just testing the waters of faith or you long for a simple way to understand and talk about your beliefs, let this easy-to-read book be your guide to the unchanging truths of Christianity.
"Most Christians would tell you they believe the Bible to be God's Word. And yet many of those same Christians could not even articulate what the core beliefs are to the Christian faith. In Jesus Loves Me, John Dickerson does a great job of helping believers understand the basic teachings of Scripture. This is a great resource for any Christian who needs to build a stronger foundation to their faith."--Steve Poe, lead pastor of Northview Church, Carmel, Indiana

"What does it mean to be a genuine Jesus follower in an age when most people, including many self-described Christians, believe that God is well-pleased with a life lived in alignment with a 'designer faith' of their own making? In Jesus Loves Me, John Dickerson answers that question with a deep dive into the simple but profound gospel that Jesus taught as the only kind of faith the Heavenly Father would be well-pleased with. As Dickerson points out, we can't be true Jesus followers if we don't know who He is or what He said and never bother to actually live like He told us to live. Whether you are a brand-new Jesus follower or a longtime veteran, this book will help you nail down the basics of what it means to genuinely know and follow Jesus."
Larry Osborne, author and pastor of North Coast Church, Vista, California
"Jesus Loves Me is a needed primer of the basics of Christian faith in an era when many polls tell us that people claim the name but do not know the basics of the faith. In a way that makes recall easy, John Dickerson lays a foundation for key core elements of belief in ways that fill that gap. By doing so, he sets the stage for a new believer to start off on the right foot in a long and meaningful walk with God."
Dr. Darrell L. Bock, New York Times bestselling author and senior research professor of New Testament studies at Dallas Theological Seminary
"Critical times call for critical answers! This book is both profound and practical, with great illustrations. It will secure your beliefs, cancel the lies, and provide precise clarity of sound doctrine no matter how long you have been a Christian. It has been awhile since we've had a resource to stimulate our understanding of the essentials of the Christian faith. It's time for us to live out our salvation through the power of the Holy Spirit. Stop just asking the questions; live out your life knowing the answers!"
Linda Penn, counselor; CEO and host of Today's Living Hope nonprofit and WDCX radio show
"In an age when everyone seems to have strongly held but weakly formed opinions about everything, including Christianity, John S. Dickerson's new book is a tremendous gift. If you want to cut through the noise and the trappings of religion and distill the essence of who Jesus actually is, this book will help you do just that."
Carey Nieuwhof, founding pastor of Connexus Church, author, and podcaster
