Written to provide a much needed textbook of Christian doctrine on the college and university level, DOCTRINES OF THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION will also fulfill the demand for a "layman's theology." As it assumes only a meager knowledge of the Bible on the part of the reader, the book reads easily. Dr. Stevens chooses to approach biblical doctrine etymologically, but is aware of the student's deficiencies in Hebrew and Greek. He has, therefore, transliterated all terms, obviating the necessity of understanding the original. Experience has revealed that students will not stop reading the textbook long enough to refer to their Bible when biblical references are given. Therefore both the reference and passage are included in the text. Fully outlined, with footnotes and exhaustive indices, OOCTRINE OF THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION will prove to be a valuable reference work for the student and layman.
