This book was given to me during the early days of my christian walk by my pastor.To just call it a good resource would be an understatement;I truly recommend it to both new and seasoned Christians.A MUST READ!!
This is a pretty good book, and I would recommend it for your personal library, but I would highly recommend that you don't use this as your only book on doctrine or theology. There are a few statements in here that seem to be mere conjecture by Chafer and lack Biblical evidence. By all means, read this book, but since we should never read just one book on theology, I would recommend that you read both Charles Ryrie and Millard Erickson along with Chafer.
Lewis Sperry Chafer's timeless masterpiece is a must for every Christian. Updated by John Walvoord, "Major Bible Themes" explains in detail the pillars of the Christian faith that will, without doubt, mature and strengthen the reader's faith in God.
This has been one of my most valuable theological tools. It was one of my theology textbooks at Calvary Bible College Kansas City, Mo. I have bought multiple copies of this book to give as gifts to friends. It is easy to understand and has a multitude of references on each topic. Any Christian would find this to be a valuable book to have.
