Condensed Systematic Theology
August 25, 2011
Erickson, once president of the Evangelical Philosophical Society, demonstrates his knowledge of both theology and philosophy in this condensed version of his Systematic Theology. This work reflects Erickson's brilliance in assessing different Christian positions on each theological topic, concluding with his own view. For an introduction in the use of critical thinking skills in theological studies I also recommend his book, "Who's Tampering with the Trinity?"
Introducing Christian Doctrine is consistent with it's description a very practical yet substantive survey of Christian theology and doctrine. I use the book often when preparing to teach, it has also helped me to grow and develop academically as a Christian. I believe the book is well balanced, and with very little argumentative biases. In short an excellent resource for any Christian looking for a more profound understanding their Christian Faith.
It is a relatively good introduction to Christian Theology. However, it is not written with the layman in mind. Also it is not written from a conservative standpoint. I find the use of the NIV translation lacking in context and correct interpretation. The authors views on creation (he is progressive creationist) not in line with the Bible's teaching on creation. He does make one think which is good and can make you study more to increase your own theological base.
