The Christian church has a long tradition of systematic theology, that is, studying theology and doctrine organized around fairly standard categories such as the Word of God, redemption, and Jesus Christ. This introduction to systematic theology has several distinctive features: - A strong emphasis on the scriptural basis for each doctrine and teaching - Clear writing, with technical terms kept to a minimum - A contemporary approach, treating subjects of special interest to the church today - A friendly tone, appealing to the emotions and the spirit as well as the intellect - Frequent application to life - Resources for worship with each chapter - Bibliographies with each chapter that cross-reference subjects to a wide range of other systematic theologies.

I expect it to be crossed by many weary sojourners for years to come.

You can get a great Biblical summary of every topic of scripture. It has really helped to support me in the defense of my own theological views. Grudem presents Calvinism in an extremely logical, sensible, and Scriptural fashion. This book is a must have for any believer!!
AR Reid5 Stars Out Of 5Crystal clear, and easy-to-readFebruary 5, 2014AR ReidQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I'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.

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.

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.
