Product Description

This volume provides the complete text of key Scripture passages that form the basis for theological study. The text used is the highly readable and reliable New International Version and the verses listed are grouped by the classical categories of systematic theology (e.g., God, Christ, Salvation), while also including disputed points and verses from which the major theological views are derived. Handbook of Basic Bible Texts is intended to assist the theological student who might not take the time to look up the verses cited in systematic theologies, but it will also be useful to anyone seeking to better understand the major themes of Scripture.

    The back of this book gives the reason for this publication, that it is "intended to assist the theological student who might not take the time to look up the verses cited in systematic theologies, but it will also be useful to anyone seeking to better understand the major themes of Scripture". That is all well and good and this book on some level accomplishes this, but at the same time, there are much better resources out there.

    For one, if you're doing research on something like the providence of God, you're going to want to spend a little bit of time in a good systematic theology anyway. Plus, any worthwhile study bible will have a section on such topics and I would assume the target audience of this book would have something like that. And I hate to say it, but in this day and age, a simple Internet search will yield the same list of verses that this book provides. So this is not a terrible book in that it does helpfully outline Biblical passages about theological beliefs, but there are plenty of other sources that also do this and even more.
