Alan Root Robertson...
... is a big-picture type guy, always fascinated by the panoramic view of life and faith, because he thinks context helps. For 30+ years, he’s traveled the nation as an evangelist and a musicianary. His call includes kids and families. He’s been allowed to be on hand when thousands of kids have said yes to the call of the Holy Spirit in salvation. He’s all about downloading the nuts and bolts of our common Christian thing in songs, sermons, and crusades.
For Alan, being a teacher has made it necessary for him to be a lifelong learner. Along the way, he’s noticed that a ton of us don’t know what we believe or why we believe it. And we really don’t know how to begin to remedy our deficiency. Hence, this book. ASK MY PASTOR puts the basic teachings of the Bible into the hands of those who sincerely want to know what’s going on with their faith in Jesus Christ.
Alan is uniquely equipped for this job by his default mode for simplification, encouragement and his seeming inability to be serious for long stretches of time. Here in this book are the basics of what believers believe: an eagle’s-eye view of the topography of biblical landscape.
Doctrine is basic to our understanding of our faith. The Bible is the source of of what the Apostle Paul calls "sound" doctrine. As the hymn says, “How firm a foundation, ye saints of the LORD, is laid for your faith in His excellent word!”
