What are the foundational teachings of the bible, and if you could choose six of them, what would you choose? Perkins, in this wonderful treatise, covers the main points of the Christian religion so that the foundational truths of the Bible are understood clearly. Perkins says he wrote this in order to, “bring you to true knowledge, unfeigned faith and sound repentance, [in] the principal points of Christian Religion in six plain and easy Rules, even such as the simplest may easily learn; and hereunto is adjoined an Exposition of them word by word.” Perkins covers aspects of the Catechism, the Ten Commandments, the Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the institution of the two Sacraments so that they may be more easily understood.

He covers the following ideas in a catechistic manner: What do you believe concerning God? What do you believe concerning man, and concerning your own self? As a result of the fall, what means is there for you to escape this damnable estate? As it pertains to the remedy for the fall, how may you be made partaker of Christ, and His benefits? In living the Christian life, what are the ordinary and usual means for obtaining faith? And then finally, what is the state of all men after death?
