Product Description

Theologian and apologist Norman Geisler has been studying and defending the faith for over forty years. He has written numerous books and is an internationally known speaker and debater. He brings his vast experience to this book, the first volume in a proposed four-volume look at systematic theology, which will examine Christian belief, doctrine and practice.

This book focuses on the philosophical underpinnings of Christianity, and displays Geisler's impressive grasp of the foundations and implications of Christian theology. He examines and defends the philosophical essentials (preconditions) which make Christianity both possible and viable. The preconditions include: the metaphysical, the supernatural, the revelational, the rational, the semantical, the epistemological, the oppositional, the linguistic, the hermeneutic, the historical and the methodological.

In addition to the philosophical foundations and preconditions, Geisler also presents an extensive bibliology, covering important topics like the origin and inspiration of the Bible, its divine nature, how Jesus and the early church viewed and used the Bible, how various Christian traditions view the Bible, and more. He looks at the biblical, historical and theological aspects of Christian doctrine, offering erudite arguments for the historicity of both the Old and New Testament canons. He discusses inerrancy, and canonicity (focusing on formation and development), and includes two appendices on major objections which have been raised against theistic beliefs, and on how we should interpret historical facts.

All told, this volume sets a high standard for the rest of the series to live up to. It can easily stand alone as a thorough introduction to Christian doctrine and practice. If its quality is matched by the rest of Geisler's Systematic Theology series, this set will easily become one of the standards for instruction in systematic theology. This volume belongs in every Christian library.

Publisher's Description

This stand-alone, in-depth reference work is the culmination of the author's thirty-plus years of study, teaching, and research. The extensive Part One, Introduction--or preconditions--sets this work apart from other systematic theologies available today. Here Geisler examines the realities of the Christian faith including the existence of God, inescapability of truth, the nature of revelation, and guidelines for interpretation. Part Two, Bible, presents the origin of the Scripture, its inspiration, inerrancy, and much more.

    The 1st in this series is well organized and follows a logic sequence. This makes topics covered understandable and enjoyable to read.

    Excellent start to laying a solid foundation to your personal theology. While long, the book is an easy read and is put in language that is easy to follow. I highly recommend this book.

    I recently purchased Geislers entire four-volume set of Systematic Theology and I must say that my purchase was long overdue. It is of my opinion that this set should be within arm reach of every serious pastor, Biblical researcher, and Christian professor.

    The set is great for the view given as comparisons are made for classes at seminary.

    Well, what can I say...I have eight other systematic theologies (from Oden to Finney) and I really have been enjoying this 1st volume. In seminary I read portions of Oden, Thomas Aquinas and Calvin, but I have throughly been engaged and have both learned and re-learned a lot from Dr. Geisler.
