Product Description

Douglas F. Kelly returns to the writings of saints and scholars to exemplify the beauty and the wonder of Christ, the Son of God, in this highly-anticipated second volume of systematic theology. Kelly delves through a treasure trove of Patristics, Scholastics, Reformers, Puritans, and Moderns to recover an Augustinian reverence for the beauty of Christ, to illustrate that the Father and the Spirit are most fully revealed through Him, and to make clear that His coming is the restoration of the universe.

Editorial Reviews

There is no other book of this magnitude.


Striking indeed... Reminds us of Jonathan Edwards, Augustine, and many other great writers of the church.


One of the best in its kind.


This systematic theology puts the lie to the old suspicion that biblical exposition and catholic concern cannot be held together. Professor Kelly has learned well from the fathers, medievals, reformers, and Puritans that tradition is to be biblical and that biblical commitment inevitably leads us to honor and embrace genuine Christian tradition. This book is aptly described by its title: not only a "Systematic Theology," but one that is "Grounded in Holy Scripture and Understood in Light of the Church." For exemplifying a commitment to reformed catholicity and showing ways in which such a vision can help keep us alert to the vibrancy and vitality of Christ's glory, then, readers will be in Professor Kelly's debt.


This book is a must read for those who serve in a cross cultural ministry context.


The eagerly awaited second volume of Douglas Kelly's Systematic Theology does not disappoint. Reading this book is stimulating theologically and enriching spiritually. Preachers, teachers, and students alike-besides the proverbial intelligent layperson-cannot fail to benefit from it. This multi-volume project continues to be a fine achievement.


... Kelly's exposition of the biblical understanding of Christ's person and work is an outstanding contribution, and deserves to be read for its comprehensive treatment of what he acknowledges is an inexhaustible topic- God's grace and truth as these are revealed in Jesus Christ.


Douglas Kelly is at his best... a wonderful resource.


If you are going to proclaim the Good News of Jesus- you need a good grasp of who he is. This book will really help.


This is dogmatics as it should be done... We become conscious not of the independent theologian spinning out his own ideas but of the chorus of praise to Christ that unites the cloud of witnesses from biblical times until today. Can we ask more of dogmatics than this?


Extremely satisfying, absorbing and so stimulating that I found it difficult to stop reading and re-reading it... The work is comprehensive, competent, Confessional, scholarly and pastoral but the pervading note of worship towards the Triune God in these pages evoked adoration, love and amazement on the part of this reader.


One of the best textbooks in systematic theology of this century.


One of those rare books that will shape both scholarly and pastoral theology for generations to come.


In the forest of recent and not-so recent systematic theologies... this tree stands out.


A joy to witness... a model to which others should aspire.


Impressive and invaluable.


Nothing less than remarkable.


Dr. Kelly was able to produce a work about Christ that combines sound exegesis, knowledge of the history of Christian doctrine, pastoral concerns and relevance.


Compellingly brings together a mind and heart for Christ. Kelly interacts with a stunningly wide range of thought. He weaves his pithy quotations from these primary sources throughout his lucid exploration of the person and work of Jesus. The depth and breadth of this Christology is truly astounding, your heart will soar to read of Christ's exaltation. Kelly's exposition of the work of our Mediator sweeps us up in a symphony of praise. If you're tired of a shallow Jesus, sick of the liberal deconstruction of the gospels that leaves everything cut in little pieces, or bored with lazy presentations that conclude "It's all a mystery," then this book is for you. Go deep. Get real. See anew the beauty of our Lord. It's worth the work to engage theology at this level. I promise you will be brought to fresh, wondering admiration of how much the Triune God loves us.


I highly recommend Dr. Kelly's systematic theology text to all believers but especially pastors and Bible College or Seminary students. The accessibility of Dr. Kelly's writing style enables the laymen to have the ability to dig into complex and important issues of Christology and the plethora of scholarly information will also provide even the most seasoned theologian with years of material worth engaging. This is a book that will be referenced over and over in my own Bible study and I encourage you to pick this volume up as you will find it to be well worth your time and effort.
