Since the different views must rely only upon the scriptures to support them in this book, you begin to see which arguments are the strongest biblically and which ones seem to be stretching the truth. All of the comparative doctrinal texts are placed in close proximity for easy comparison. You will learn a lot of theology (hopefully not just your own) by simply reading this book.
Each chapter in the book includes a major subject of the Bible followed by a brief introduction; all the relevant verses on the topic in sequential order; brief theological comments on most of the verses; and recommended resources for each subject at the end of each chapter.
Here are the Subjects Covered in the Book:
1) Scripture - Verbal inspiration and Inerrancy.
2) God - His existence; Divine attributes - Metaphysical & Moral; The Trinity, and Election (verses supported by both Calvinists and Arminians).
4) Providence - Nature, World History, and Personal Circumstances.
