A New Systematic Theology of the Christian Faith by Robert Reymond
June 19, 2016
People all over the internet hail this book as the best Systematic ever written. But, all I can say is - what a mess. The flow of this systematic was just horrible. I have never worked harder in my life to want to like a book and understand a book than I have this one. It was just a struggle from beginning to end to follow his discussion. The endless quotes of other writers is not what I want to read. Is it necessary to quote BB Warfield on his comments on John Calvin? The author seems to argue with others positions (Pinnock for example) more than just explaining the doctrine. If I wanted to know what Pinnock has to say on any given subject I would have bought his book. It seems to me it would have been a better Systematic if Reymond would have presented his own views rather than presenting everyone elses and spend the whole book refuting their arguments. I would not recommend this book because there are many better Systematics available.
I have Charles Hodge's 3 vol. and I bought the e-book of Dr.Reymond one of the past and one of the current, it is good to know that good teaching that lines up with the spirit of God is yet here with us. If you don't have this in your library it is short another great Man of God. Sound and solid !!!
