Product Description

Systematic theology for the urban context

DNA:The Foundations of the Faith presents each reader with a survey of systematic theology written in the heart language of the urban context.

D.A. Horton writes with a conviction that every believer should have the privilege of being equipped with a working knowledge of what the principle teachings of Christianity are. This tool can be used in any setting from the seminary classroom to the local street corner.

Written in a workbook style, readers will explore key scriptures and record all that is discovered as each person is equipped to live out the truths they learn.

Whether attending ReachLife Institute, studying with a small group, or going through this workbook alone, your faith will be enriched as the study of these foundational truths are learned and applied to life.

About the Author

D-A Horton
D.A. HORTON currently serves on staff at Summit Church in Durham, NC while he and his family are preparing to plant a church in Los Angeles. Prior to his current role he served as an urban church planter, pastor, and Lead Teaching Elder in Kansas City, MO for nearly six years; a National Coordinator of Urban Student Ministries and the Urban Initiatives Team at the North American Mission Board (NAMB); and the Executive Director at ReachLife Ministries, the non-profit arm of Reach Records. D.A. is currently working on his Ph.D. at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Applied Theology with a North American emphasis. With a heart to provide local churches with quality Bible-centered tools and resources for evangelism and discipleship, D.A. wrote two books: G.O.S.P.E.L. and DNA: Foundations of the Faith both published by Moody Publishers. His third book, Bound to Be Free: Escaping Performance to be Captured by Grace will be released through NavPress in spring 2016. He and his wife Elicia have two daughters, Izabelle and Lola and one son, D.A. Jr. (aka Duce).


DA Horton is an urban pastor, church planter and theologian who provides ministers of the Gospel with a tool for helping people understand systematic theology with depth, breadth, clarity and brevity. Written with the urban reader in mind, Horton's book began as, and will be, a perfect guide for those who want to expand their biblical knowledge or theological study. 

- Kevin Ezell, President of the North American Mission Board

A masterful yet highly accessible work –this is a rare and timely gift to urban ministers and church members alike. Horton takes on the difficult task of taking the seminary to the streets without compromising the content or context on either side. Written concisely and comparatively to Ryrie's Basic Theology, yet packaged in such a way that the average un-churched, and often under educated, young adults of today's urban centers will find manageable.  I've found DNA: Foundations of the Faith to be a helpful must have for all inner city ministries.

- Steve M. Ross II, Director of Multicultural Student Advancement, The Master's College

Damon is a Godly young man with a vision based on a proper theological foundation that has something to say. As an author he is a communicator that writes with passion and clarity. I highly recommend this book to you for your own enrichment and spiritual development.

- Dr. James Clark, PhD., President, Calvary Bible College & Calvary Theological Seminary
