Robert Culver wrote Systematic Theology with the goal of creating a treasure trove for the student of the Bible. No previous knowledge of theology demanded, this volume is written in an essentially readable way and is the perfect core to the library of anyone who loves to learn.
Subjects include: the doctrine of God, the doctrine of man as created, the doctrine of man as fallen, the doctrine of salvation, the doctrine of last things, and the doctrine of Christ.
Here is a bold, comprehensive, and faithful systematic theology.
The labor of a lifetime. This theological resource proves to be thoroughly biblical, soundly orthodox, and eminently readable... it receives my warm commendation.
Dr. Culver represents the highest achievement in the area of Systematic Theology.
Dr. Culver has given us a classic statement of the evangelical faith. This is a book to come back to again and again.
The arrival of a new Systematic Theology from the hand of a great evangelical theologian like Dr Robert Culver is always welcome. In this case, the book will be welcomed by both evangelical audiences and those not inclined toward evangelicalism simply because of the erudition of the work. The believing community will have its life and ministry enhanced by this excellent volume.
The oft ignored doctrine of the perspicuity of Scripture has found a new champion in Robert Culver's thorough yet engaging Systematic Theology. First, last, and always he is a teacher, a teacher of the sure and certain doctrines of the Bible. Culver's theology is in keeping with the best of reformation and subsequent evangelical traditions. We are eager to see Robert Culver's Systematic Theology translated into the Magyar tongue. It is hoped his words will, as they have with so many of his American students, encourage and inform sound Bible teaching in the reawakening pulpits of the Hungarian people.
'Here is the rich harvest of a dedicated scholar's lifetime of study, teaching, and writing. There is no area of theology that Dr. Culver fails to discuss with a masterful grasp of all the relevant issues. What I especially appreciate is his command of significant literature. This exhaustive work provides a resource that pastors in particular will find of great help in dealing with doctrinal questions.'
Dr Robert Culver has been an "international treasure" in the church for years and has helped many of us in our personal walk and ministry. As a theologian, he is biblical and balanced, and he keeps reminding us that theology is for living and not just for studying. He believes that a theologian should challenge and instruct and he fulfills these ministries admirably. Both the young preacher and the veteran will find enlightenment and nourishment in these pages.'
"Culver brings both the explicitly biblical framework of Reymond and the historical-mindedness of McGrath together in one massive volume!"
"Culver's Systematic Theology is biblically grounded, edifying and thorough. As a theologian, he writes with the worshipful reverence of a Puritan, the stirring exhortation of a prophet, the logical precision of a philosopher, and the wise guidance of a pastor. His desire to ground all our theology in Scripture is obvious throughout."
'It was my pleasure to study in Dr. Culver's systematic theology courses at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Long have I cherished his notes from such classes as "sin and salvation" and "ecclesiology and eschatology." What I learned from him has served me exceptionally well as an evangelical professor. As I perused the present work, it was just as if I were back in the classroom. Dr. Culver's careful presentation and encyclopedic wisdom shine through these pages. I am grateful that the current generation of Bible students-and those to come-will now be able to learn from one of the American masters of theology.'
Terry Brown5 Stars Out Of 5March 18, 2009Terry BrownI have found the book to be very thorough and the questions placed before me were probing. I highly recommend this book.
Leon Roberts5 Stars Out Of 5September 19, 2008Leon RobertsThis is an excellent work on systematic theology. I purchased it because while doing research for a paper I discovered that in some areas of Millard Erickson's Systematic Theology brevity of treatment in some areas where Culver went into much greater detail. I think the major difference between the two works is that Erickson assumes basic knowledge on the part of the reader where Culver assumes the reader has little to no basic knowledge of systematic theology. I believe that these two authors, Erickson and Culver compliment each other so I now have both works in my pastoral library.
