At first look, this volume may seem daunting. It is absolutely huge! But we need to remember that this book isn't mean to be read cover to cover, but as a resource to answer the deep questions you have about theology. I have the individual volumes by the author, but this one volume treasure is a one-stop shop for all your queries. While this book is a great tools for pastors, what makes it an excellent work is that Geisler writes in such a way that you don't have to be a scholar to read it. While it is thorough, well-researched, and covers some deep topics, it is totally accessible to the average Joe (or Jane). I highly recommend you have this book in your library if you are serious about sharing your faith with those around you.

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).

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.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.

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.

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.

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Geisler has compiled a life's work into one tremendous volume. Seriously, this book is HUGE. If you purchase this and never get around to digging into it, you could at least use it as a dumbell.
I have only skimmed the surface of it in my own studies, but I have done quite a bit of thumbing around in it, and it is very well done, I must say. For the most part Geisler does a fine job being objective in his writing - offering most, if not all, the differing opinions on the big doctrines and thereby quoting the work of the other major and historical theologians. He also outlines popular objections to Christian doctrines and does a swell job of refuting them by reasoned arguments. There are indeed places where he can seem a bit bias toward differing views (especially Roman Catholicism), but hey, he wrote this book and he is therefore entitled to champion his own deeply held beliefs and also express some passion for them. If I wrote a book I would do the same; it is kind of the whole point of writing your own book. For the most part though he remains objective in his approach, which is helpful. Notwithstanding, we all would do well to be on guard when we read ANY book. Perfection can only come from a Perfect God, and there is but ONE of those, and He just so happen to 'write' a book Himself - the Bible - you should check it out.
All in all I am very happy with this investment, and feel I have gotten my money's worth and then some. I expect to wear this volume ragged through the years.
