Product Description

Wayne Grudem's Systematic Theology is now available in paperback. The Christian church has a long tradition of systematic theology, that is, studying theology and doctrine organized around fairly standard categories such as the Word of God, redemption, and Jesus Christ. This introductory textbook on systematic theology has several distinctive features:
  • A strong emphasis on the scriptural basis for each doctrine and teaching
  • Clear writing, with technical terms kept to a minimum
  • A contemporary approach, treating subjects of special interest to the church today
  • A friendly tone, appealing to the emotions and the spirit as well as the intellect
  • Questions for personal application at the end of each chapter
  • Resources for worship with each topic
  • Bibliographies with each chapter that cross-reference subjects to a wide range of other systematic theologies

Endorsements

Wayne Grudem understands that every Christian 'does theology,' that doctrine inevitably finds its application in the believer's life. Clearly written, this volume demonstrates an appreciation for the rich diversity of traditions within the body of Christ while at the same time reminding us that our faith is rooted in historic Christian truth.
-Chuck Colson,
Prison Fellowship Ministries

If you were hoping to find a student's textbook of theology that seeks your spiritual no less than your intellectual formation, rejoice. Wayne Grudem has written exactly what you wanted, and he had done so very competently indeed.
-J.I. Packer,
Regent College

Systematic Theology is remarkable for its extraordinary juxtapositions. It is penetrating but not confusing; forthright and unequivocal but not reckless or overstated; readable and clear but not superficial; biblically grounded, even biblically saturated, but not textually careless or glib; devout and reverent but not uncritical or naive; practical but not trendy or sentimental; comprehensive but not majoring on minors; a book for the church but not parochial or sectarian. I expect to turn it for decades.
-John Piper,
Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis

Altogether a magnificent achievement which deserves to be widely used among evangelicals.
-Gerald Bray,
Beeson Divinity School

    I was looking for a reliable Evangelical systematic theology text and I know many people who had purchased Grudem's work and decided to get it myself as well.

    There are upsides to his work, for one it is very thorough and well laid out. His descriptions of deep theological topics are approachable and avoid being too heady. For a student such as myself who wants to learn seminary level topics without having to go to seminary there are many chapters in the book that are very insightful, a good deal deeper academically speaking than your average sunday school. He also structures each chapter in the same logical format over and over, which makes for an easy to use textbook layout. All in all these are the main reasons I gave him 3 stars.

    But it was also striking how it seems that Grudem erred on the side of being too "balanced" in his approach, what I mean by that is he often doesn't draw firm conclusions to avoid offense on several issues. He emphasis the need for unity in the theological community, and while I agree, we must also ask ourselves if unity should come at the price of accuracy and truth. Take Grudem's chapter on Creation: he does not end with the firm belief of a six day literal creation, a fact that the Hebrew language enforces clearly. Take the Flood, he does not end his chapter with the firm belief that it was truly global (which begs the question, if the flood was local, does that mean God promised with a rainbow to never again send a local flood? clearly wrong) There are several issues like these where the response is simply too wishy washy.

    All in all I give his book 3 stars for a solid layout and in general helpful content that was sadly marred by a lack of firmness on some key apologetics issues.

    I researched several reference books and by far, this was the best! I love that it is written FOR THE STUDENT and lay persons, not theological scholars. It is comprehensive, yet easy to understand. Our church's EDU Center decided to use it as the course textbook! I especially love the Laminated Study Guide, which capsulizes terms and definitions to enhance your study. I am very pleased!

    I would like to have a hard cover instead of the soft cover. The price was lower. I have only gotten to chapter 12 that's why I can only give it 3 stars. Theology is based on "theory" but the bible is based on fact. It's a good edition to my library. I'll try and come back later and maybe change the rating.
