Systematic Theology: An Introduction to Biblical Doctrine - eBook
Crystal clear, and easy-to-read
I've been diligently studying Wayne Grudem's "Systematic Theology" for several years, and I still stand in awe of its crystal clarity. Much like R.C. Sproul, Grudem has a gift for making difficult concepts easy to understand for all of us non-specialists.
Theologically, this work follows the Protestant Reformers (i.e., Calvinism) on almost every page except, for example, in such areas as six-day creation, infant baptism, and spiritual gifts, where Grudem deviates from the long line of theological giants from church history. These deviations, however, should not deter one from buying this book and studying Grudem's arguments in those areas. I, for one, have found those chapters not only challenging, but very insightful. And, after thinking hard about what Grudem says in those chapters, I've often found myself wondering if he's not right.
As a pastor, if I could own just one systematic theology, Grudem's would certainly be it. Buy it with confidence, find a quiet place to sit and study it, and be prepared to have your mind stimulated, your heart stirred, and your God exalted. Happy reading.

An excellent review for anyone seeking to enhance their understanding of Scripture. Grudem synthesizes some of the major arguments on various doctrines of the Christian faith. This serves the reader by making it easy to consume. Every student of the Bible should have a copy of Grudem's Systematic Theology.

This is an outstanding book.
This is a must have book for the serious student of the word. The authur makes the subject of theology comprehensive and yet so practical.
I have waited a while to make this purchase because I just didn't have the available resources, but when I saw the sale I quickly made the purchase.
If you are building your biblical library, you must make this book a part of it.
