"For many people the word theology suggests seminary-educated scholars who sit in ivory towers, isolated from the real world, studying the Bible. Such study is often viewed as esoteric and unrelated to the world where men and women live, work, play, raise families, and struggle with the realities of day-to-day life.
Nothing could be further from the truth." ---Tony Evans
What we think about God, also known as theology, influences what we believe, do, and say. And what we think, whether true or false, makes a big difference in real life.
Tony Evans wants you to know the truth about God, so Theology You Can Count On communicates truths about God in language you can understand. He walks through what the Bible teaches, topic by topic, truth by truth. The great thing is, these truths aren't reserved for people with PhDs. They're for real life. They're for you.

Joseph Kincaid5 Stars Out Of 5March 20, 2009Joseph KincaidThis compilation from Dr. Tony Evans is a much needed and long overdue resource. Being over twenty years in the making, "Theology You Can Count On" effectively blends theological depth and practical application which is unfortunately not characteristic of most works in this family. Most Systematics are long on information but they tragically fail to bridge the biblical teaching to the Christian in such a way that will inform their mind and impact their walk. This massive book(almost 1400 pages)is no mere collection of sermons. It is a serious presentation that is a joy to read and is equally easy to understand. Each division of theology is broken up into smaller, digestible chapters with tools for personal application and group discussion. These combine to make "Theology You Can Count On" an excellent choice for personal study, small group, Sunday School, and Bible Institute. This comprehensive resource can even be used in one-on-one discipleship, eliminating the need to purchase multiple smaller books. "Theology You Can Count On" though very full is not by design a scholarly treatise. And as with any theological writing, one may find points of disagreement. It is however throughly evangelical and gives great evidence to Dr. Evans' very high view of Scripture. In conclusion, quoting Dr. Evans: "Theology, when properly understood, ought to be challenging, inspiring, transforming, and even fun." And if these are what you want from your study of God then "Theology You Can Count On" is for you. Now go have fun!

Kevin Schneider5 Stars Out Of 5November 19, 2008Kevin SchneiderI enjoy Tony Evans' teaching and am challenged by his message. I have read the first hundred or so pages. I have found a couple places where it seems he is taking Scripture out of context but I am not sure. I am completely sure that anything I find disagreeable will not differ from the core of Biblical Christian thought. So far, I thoroughly enjoy this book and will likely keep it until I leave for the Place Jesus is preparing for me.
