Dr. Don5 Stars Out Of 5Superb BuyApril 10, 2017Dr. DonQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As I already have the set of Systematic Theology by Hodge, I did not know what I would be getting with Chafer. However for the price I purchased the set and I was glad I did. Upon opening the box I sat in my home study and began to go through each volume in topic and content. When I looked up at the clock a little over an hour had passed. The cover and binding is durable and handsome, the pages are of quality stock and print easy to read and follow .As a professor and minister I will say that whether you are a lay student, academic student, pastor or professor the contents and depth are superb. On each level of study you will find information that will inform you and enrich you as you converse about the Christian faith in a personal or apologetic defense of the faith..

Andy AndersonLynden, WashingtonAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5My Number One Theology SetJuly 14, 2013Andy AndersonLynden, WashingtonAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I absolutely enjoy Basic Theology by C.C. Ryrie, and if I want additional detail for my study, I used this multi-volume systematic theology set by Chafer. I would like to provide a couple of quotes from two Giants of the Faith at Dallas Theological Seminary (see below).
"Chafer's theology may be characterized as biblical, Calvinistic, premillennial, and dispensational; but chiefly he was a strong exponent of the grace of God. This central concept was related to his Calvinism (though he taught unlimited redemption); to his understanding of the distinctiveness of the church, the body of Christ, in the program of God (thus his dispensationalism); to his emphasis on the faithfulness of God to fulfill his promises to Israel (thus his premillennialism); and to grace as the ruling principle of the Christian life, coupled with an emphasis on the ministry of the Holy Spirit.
Chafer was a skilled theologian, as may be seen in his excellent and often unique treatment of soteriology and pneumatology, and his theological writings gave academic status to his dispensational premillennial viewpoint. Undoubtedly his teaching and his written and popular ministry exerted a major influence for biblical understanding on the church in the twentieth century." by C.C Ryrie
Chafer's Systematic Theology stands alone among the other available theologies. Walvoord is quite correct when he writes, "For the first time modern Fundamentalism has been systematized in an unabridged systematic theology. The work is definitely creative and original. There is no other work in systematic theology which is comparable to it. Its form of treatment, method of interpretation, and unabridged character have no parallel. As a representative, authoritative, and comprehensive treatment of systematic theology it will occupy a place filled by no other publication." John Walvoord
