Format: Hardcover
The highly acclaimed book Systematic Theology, (In One Concise Volume), written by the esteemed Dr. Norman Geisler is to the study of Theology what the Rolls Royce is to the automobile...the "creme de la creme" in a manner of speaking of books concerning the study of Theology. And this is one book that no serious student of God and his Word should be without.

In the over 1600 pages that makes up the book, Dr. Geisler comprehensively yet understandably writes about such subjects as The Bible, God, Creation, Sin, Salvation, The Church and Last things or "The End Times" as they are often referred to by Bible teachers. Dr. Geisler's book has been the textbook of choice, or on the list of books for recommended reading at the very least, for many Theology courses in Bible Colleges and seminaries across our land and for good reason as it is a scholarly book to be sure. However, the lay person can also sit down and read this book and understand what Dr. Geisler is writing concerning the subject material.

Dr. Geisler uses a vast amount of Scripture passages to confirm that what he is writing is true according to the Word of God about each area of Theology that he covers in his book...and that what he has written is not merely his opinion.Dr. Geisler however has many years of personal study and service to the Lord so his personal opinion would be held in high regard by any serious student of the Scriptures. He also shares varying schools of thought or opinions in the areas of theological study where there is question or disagreement among believers, for example as in the matter of what is going to happen in the End Times, (such as in regards to "the Rapture" and when it will occur or the Millennium and where that fits into the eternal time plan of God).

Extremely thorough. One of the best treatments of the doctrine of hell that I've seen in a long time. Actually, the entire section on eschatology was pretty good.

Strong points: very thorough. Geisler includes sufficient information to make everything easy to understand, and includes (mostly) sound arguments against most of the alternative views (Geisler writes from an orthodox fundamentalist viewpoint). The book is well organized, ad the language is accessible to lay people without being to simple for the more serious student. Citations were very good.

Weak points: many of Geisler's arguments from a philosophical standpoint can be seen as weak. While they hold water, they aren't well-supported and there were several instances where I could see a particular theological stance being refuted by a clever debater. The saving grace is that he always offers multiple arguments for each example.

Overall: worthwhile for an apologetic, very good for a student or scholar as an addition to their theological library.

We have found this 1664 page volume to cover all the theological topics one can imagine, and then some. It covers them in a fair, balanced way, outlining different perspectives in areas where different traditions interpret scripture differently. This work is thorough, detailed, and academic, so it is not the "curl up beside the fireplace" kind of book. It is however, in my opinion, a "must have" reference book in the libraries of evangelicals.

While I do not agree with all written, Geisler does a great job in laying the foundations of most Christian beliefs, although disagree with his faith only doctrine. I would recommend this book for all serious bible students.

I have this Systematic Theology book and Wayne Grudem's Systematic Theology book. I enjoy both of them and they each cover topics the other does not. Overall though I have found Geisler's to be an easier read for those who do not have a Theological background. He explains some of the "Christianese" words better than Grudem.

I purchased this book as an addition to my theological library. As an Eastern Orthodox Christian I have obvious and divers issues with Evangelical theology. I purchased this book primarily to understand Protestant arguments in order to better refute them in my contacts with the same. However, having a scholastic bent I found the sections on God and logic at the beginning of the book to be well reasoned and written.

I have not, I admit, read the whole book but found it necessary to comment on the section dealing with the Roman Catholic teaching regarding the Eucharist. In a couple places both in the text and the footnotes the author shows a real lack of understanding regarding the Orthodox teaching on transubstantiation/real presence theology. He seemingly lumps our theology in with the consubstantiation of the Lutherans and Anglicans. This could not be further from the truth. Though the Orthodox don't typically use the word "transubstantiation" it cannot be denied that our belief is that our LORD Jesus Christ is really and corporeally present in the Eucharist. The difference between ourselves and the Roman Catholics is essentially a distinction without a difference. However it must also be said that in some older Russian catechisms such as the Catechism of St Philaret of Moscow that the word "transubstantiation" is used to describe the mode of presence regarding the Eucharist.

Overall I found this particular section very weak in its argumentation. The author would seemingly have us believe that we should believe modern Protestant exegesis of John 6 over against the consensus of the Fathers, the enduring Tradition of the Church. and the obvious and plain interpretation of the text.

Overall the book is very nicely laid out and should make a great reference for any student of theology be they Protestant, Roman Catholic or Orthodox.
