I have used Major Bible Themes for years as a referene book; I just purchased several as gifts for believers who are interested in serious Bible study. This is one of my first choices to use when clarifying a particular subject of doctrine in discussions with friends. In my opinion, it should be in every Christian home library.
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.
