Product Description

The Moody Handbook of Theology leads the beginner into the appreciation and understanding of this essential field of study. It introduces the reader to the five dimensions that provide a comprehensive view of theology: biblical, systematic, historical, dogmatic and contemporary.

The apostle Paul wrote that all Scripture is 'profitable for teaching' (2 Tim. 3:16), that Timothy should 'pay close attention to...your teaching' (1 Tim. 4:16), and that leaders should 'be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict' (Titus 1:9). When he wrote these statements, Paul was referring to theology.

Beyond giving basic definitions and general descriptions, author Paul Enns summarizes the substantial features of theology. In this way, he provides a concise doctrinal reference tool for the newcomer as well as the seasoned scholar seeking a refresher. There are fifty-five informative charts located at strategic points throughout the book and it has been updated to include material on evangelical feminism, charismatic theology, and the emerging church.

    I got this book for a class at my University. I was expecting it to be a good overview of different types of theology, but I did not expect such a biased, one-sided, narrow-minded take on anything and everything Paul Enns disagrees with. There's a decent coverage of of systems of theology in this book (though there are a few missing), but if it's not Reformed conservative theology, then it's wrong according to this book. Each chapter is laid out in the same fashion: there's a brief, often inaccurate or misleading, description of each system of theology followed by Paul Enns reasons why its wrong and only Reformed Calvinistic theology is the right way to go. There is no objectivity in this work at all, and it is very unscholarly. Not only that, but many of Enns's arguments for his Reformed views are not well thought out. I've read many better arguments from reformed theologians than what Paul Enns offers in this book. In short, if you're looking for a biased Reformed explanation of why only Calvin ever interpreted the Bible correctly, then this is the book for you. If you're looking for a fair, accurate, and objective overview of various modes of theology, then I urge you to look elsewhere.
