Product Description

Doctrine isn't just for theologians—it's important for every Christian because it shows us who God is and how we should live. Systematizing the robust theology that has undergirded Dr. John MacArthur's well-known preaching ministry for decades, Biblical Doctrine: A Systematic Summary of Bible Truth offers an overview of basic Christian doctrine covering topics such as Scripture, God the Father, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, humanity and sin, salvation, angels, the church, and more.

Comprehensive in scope yet written to be accessible to the average reader, Biblical Doctrine includes non-technical vocabulary, minimal footnotes, and a helpful bibliography. For educated laypeople, readers of MacArthur's previous books, pastors and other church leaders, as well as college and seminary students, this volume offers a solid biblical foundation for what to believe and why.

Author Bio

John MacArthur is the pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, where he has served since 1969. He is known around the world for his verse-by-verse expository preaching and his pulpit ministry via his daily radio program, Grace to You. He has also written or edited nearly four hundred books and study guides. MacArthur serves as the president of the Master’s College and Seminary. He and his wife, Patricia, live in Southern California and have four grown children.

Richard Mayhue (ThD, Grace Theological Seminary) served at the Master's Seminary from 1989 to 2016 as the dean of the seminary, research professor of theology, and executive vice president. He has authored or edited more than thirty books, including Biblical Doctrine.

Editorial Reviews

“The ministry of John MacArthur has had a worldwide impact. MacArthur and Mayhue clearly unfold the doctrines that are at the heart of this ministry, which has touched so many. Here we see a ministry built on truth, the truth of God’s Word and the truth of the gospel. A wonderful resource for students, pastors, and professors.”

Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation and Professor of Biblical Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

“This new resource is a rich and compelling presentation of Christianity’s theological foundations, providing readers with an accessible but compelling systematization of biblical truth. As the last vestiges of Christian influence erode in the West, rich theological resources like Biblical Doctrine will edify and strengthen the church as it faces stiff opposition from the world.”

R. Albert Mohler Jr., President and Joseph Emerson Brown Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“It is a delight to wholeheartedly recommend John MacArthur and Richard Mayhue’s Biblical Doctrine. It will be celebrated for the clarity of its outline and description of the Bible’s doctrines. It is just too good to miss.”

Walter C. Kaiser Jr., President Emeritus and Colman M. Mockler Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Old Testament, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

“Clarity ought to be an essential requirement of books on systematic theology. And this one offers just that! A comprehensive summary of all that a Christian needs to know—sounds like something every Christian should have available, doesn’t it? And written by a name that epitomizes orthodoxy and truth—John MacArthur. Enough said. It speaks for itself.”

Derek W. H. Thomas, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina; Robert Strong Professor of Systematic and Pastoral Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary–Atlanta

“This volume is the life achievement of almost fifty years of preaching in one pulpit by this world-class expositor, John MacArthur. He has stood, week after week, even decade after decade, plumbing the depths of the biblical text and connecting its truths together, leading to this well-constructed body of divinity. Here is the crown jewel from this brilliant pastor and author that will cause the truth of Scripture to shine even brighter before our eyes.”

Steven J. Lawson, Director of Doctor of Ministry Program and Professor of Preaching, The Master’s Seminary; President and Founder, OnePassion Ministries; author, The Kind of Preaching God Blesses

“For decades John MacArthur has exemplified expository preaching, putting on full display the Word of God for the people of God. Now MacArthur, teaming up with Richard Mayhue and the Master’s Seminary faculty, has written a systematic theology, demonstrating how his verse-by-verse exposition naturally blossoms into a robust, colorful theological mosaic. This book is the theological dessert at the end of an expository meal. Regardless of your theological heritage, I encourage every Christian to sit under the doctrinal teaching of MacArthur and Mayhue. Certainly, you will walk away saturated in Scripture, left in total awe after relishing the majesty and glory of our gracious God.”

Matthew Barrett, Tutor of Systematic Theology and Church History, Oak Hill Theological College

    Now that John MacArthur completed a systematic theology book, it seems like he's done it all in the world of Christian literature. This definitely ranks with his study Bible and New Testament commentary series as one of his most important, substantial, and equipping pieces of work. It is no light effort, but a work that has been in development for 2 plus years, which gives a well-researched and thorough treatise of all subjects of systematic theology ranging from Bibliology to eschatology, each subject thoroughly explained with helpful illustrations, charts, and quotes along the way.

    On average, I believe this is the most accurate systematic theology book I've come across. There are many other great works out there (including Wayne Grudem and John Frame's systematic theology books). Although these books explain core doctrines of the Christian faith pretty well, when it came to those "secondary issues" of doctrine, that's were it faltered, ranging from a false view of origins (theistic evolution) to confusing views of eschatology. Biblical Doctrine is committed to the grammatical-historical method of hermeneutics in interpreting biblical issues, which does the most justice in bringing out the clarity and practicality of every subject in the Bible. Like some of the book endorsement's claim, you might not agree with every doctrinal stance, but it's commendable that MacArthur and Mayhue have a consistent hermeneutics that really give us confidence in the literal truths and comprehensibility of Scripture, whether it be the salvation issue or end times issue.

    Whether you are a pastor or layperson, this resource will be extremely beneficial and life changing. It is one of the best works ever produced from MacArthur, and has the ability to equip every person extravagantly for the work of ministry and discipling others
