Major Bible themes was designed as a tool for spiritual growth, offering a valuable introduction into Christian doctrine. It sees the Bible as the inspired Word of God, focusing on its subject and purpose as a vehicle of divine revelation. The character and attributes of God are examined, with several chapters dedicated to each member of the Trinity. Other chapters look at topics like the dispensations, the covenants, Satan, sin, the church, the end times, and more.
For a basic introduction to Reformed (and dispensational) Christianity, there is no better book. All major doctrines, issues, and personalities are discussed in a simple, straightforward manner. Chapters are fairly short, and are designed to be used in conjunction with the study questions. Reading through Major Bible Themes in one year will greatly increase your knowledge of the Bible and the God revealed there.

Andy AndersonLynden, WashingtonAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Major Bible Themes - Great Revision!November 23, 2016Andy AndersonLynden, WashingtonAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love this book by Lewis Sperry Chafer, revised by John Walvoord. The original book featured 49 chapters, and this current book has been revised and features 52 chapters. A great theology book for personal or group study. 52 chapters are great for a weekly study for one year. I have given this book to Christians, providing them the basics of theology. For further study I would recommend Basic Theology by Charles Ryrie, and if you have additional funds purchase Systematic Theology (4 volumes) by Lewis Sperry Chafer. These three I have in my library, and I enjoy each one of them. I highly recommend that you start with this volume, read it, study it, and teach it to others. You will be blessed.
