Mindful of the great importance of the proper indoctrination of the young people of the church, Louis Berkhof wrote this comprehensive yet concise introduction to the fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith from a Reformed perspective. Reprinted in 1998 this text is ideally suited as a textbook for high school and college classes, for Bible classes, and study groups. From a Reformed perspective, Berkhof summarizes the body of church doctrine, beginning with the doctrines of Scripture and proceeding through statements on anthropology, Christology, soteriology, and eschatology. Conveying profound theological exposition with exceptionally clear and simple language, this book is ideally suited as a textbook for high school and college classes, for Bible classes, study groups, and for the interested general reader. Study questions and suggestions for further reading follow each chapter, and the organization of the text in outline form is highly conductive to quick reference and review.
