Publisher's Description

A classic from a leading Reformed theologian of the 1800s. The editor, Alan W. Gomes, translated all foreign-language words and quotations and wrote an introduction and glossary. The first edition was published by Charles Scribner’s Sons in two volumes in 1888; the second edition, in 1889. A third volume was added in 1894. All three volumes were reprinted by Zondervan in 1953 and by Thomas Nelson in 1980.

Author Bio

William G. T. Shedd (18201894) was a professor at Union Theological Seminary in New York for twenty-eight years. An eminent theologian of his era, he wrote both doctrinal and pastoral works.

Editorial Reviews

One of the largest and best systematic theologies.
[Ranks] second only to the works of Jonathan Edwards.
Reading Shedd is like discovering a family heirloom in the attic. By making him available again to a wide audience, the editor, Alan Gomes, has rendered a great service. Gomes has actually improved Shedd’s classic by taking material from the third somewhat ‘miscellaneous’ volume and inserting it into the body of the work. Many other helps (viz., glossaries, clear notations,illuminating editorial comments) make this the best edition of this work. If the questions of the authority of Scripture, God’s omniscience and omnipotence, human helplessness, the substitutionary atonement, justification, the scope of salvation, and the doctrine of endless punishment are as fiercely contested in out day as in Shedd’s, we will find DogmaticTheology as relevant as ever.
The reissuing of Shedd’s Dogmatic Theology occasions pure joy for all who are devoted to biblically sound and historically alert theology. Here they will encounter an energetic and well-stocked mind laboring diligently to perceive the truths of Scripture, chart their interrelations, and follow their implications through high and reasoned speculation. Alan Gomes ‘s introduction --itself and inviting invitation to the delights of historical and systematic theology-- identifies not only the peculiar strengths of Shedd’s work, but also ways it can correct many errors of more recent theology. The English translations of Shedd’s many untranslated quotations enhance the work’s accessibility, as do the glossaries, which by themselves may instruct readers in theological terminology and biography alike. An eminently useful publication and a significant service to the church.
Since its publication more than one hundred years ago, Shedd’s Dogmatic Theology has held a place of honor among the magisterial theological works of the Christian faith. God has always provided his church with good biblical theology for its nourishment and protection. This blessed provision continues in this new edition of Shedd’s classic work. The well-conceived enhancements provided by Alan Gomes greatly enrich the usefulness of this work over the previous edition, opening it up to all thoughtful readers.

    I have read the great Reformed Theologians;Calvin, Edwards, Hodge, Warfield, Berkhof,and Murray, and I must say that I wouldglady discard all of their theological worksand retain only William Shedd's DOGMATIC THEOLOGY. Why? Shedd is both DEEP and CLEAR at the sametime. This is an art of writing theology which few have and<br /><br />Shedd certainly has this skill. Shedd willexplain not only from Scripture but alsosystematically with logic establish why Christian truth must be so and could not any other way.This edition by Alan Gomes of Talbot Seminaryis BETTER than any previous editions ofShedd's DOGMATIC THEOLOGY. Gomes' edition has better paragraph headings along with better footnotes and better supplementary endnotes without changing hardly any of the contents. Ordering Reformed Theology? Make it Shedd's!

    This edition has set the standard for all critical works of theology. All the Greek and Hebrew have been translated while footnoted with the original language. A dictionary of terms is given in the back. At the end of each chapter, various points made throughout that chapter are reflected upon by lengthy quotations from other works. It is like getting 3 books in one.This is probably the best lay persons introduction to systematic theology. Though this work has been translated from the original German into English, it is NOT Sunday suppliment reading, however. Shedd plumbs the depths of theological debate which will never be exhausted. Though not as detailed Edwards paper on free-will, Shedd's Dogmatic Theology is certainly easier to read. His thesis that "the inclination of the will is the result of self-determination, not of volition," opens a whole new way of thinking for the reflective reader.This edition is a must for any serious theological library. If only more theological works would adopt its format.
