How do we know the Bible is Gods Word? What is sin and where did it come from? How is Jesus fully God and fully man? What are spiritual gifts? When and how will Christ return? If youve asked questions like these, then systematic theology is no abstract term. Its an approach to finding answers every Christian needs to know.
Bible Doctrine takes a highly commended upper-level textbook on systematic theology and makes it accessible to the average reader. Abridged from Wayne Grudems award-winning Systematic Theology, Bible Doctrine covers the same essentials of the faith, giving you a firm grasp on seven key topics: ? The Doctrine of the Word of God ? The Doctrine of God ? The Doctrine of Man ? The Doctrines of Christ and the Holy Spirit ? The Doctrine of the Application of Redemption ? The Doctrine of the Church ? The Doctrine of the Future
Like Systematic Theology, this book is marked by its clarity, its strong scriptural emphasis, its thoroughness in scope and detail, and its treatment of such timely topics as spiritual warfare and the gifts of the Spirit. But you dont need to have had several years of Bible school to reap the full benefits of Bible Doctrine. Its easy to understandand its packed with solid, biblical answers to your most important questions -- Publisher
From the Publisher
Systematic theology can be an intimidating subject to tackle. But Bible Doctrine makes it accessible to students and laypersons who want to understand more about the Bible, God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, Mankind, Redemption, the Church, and the Future. An abridgment of Grudem's classic text, Systematic Theology, this book meets a need expressed by many who value his scholarship and writing ability but want a theology book that is understandable on a non-graduate-student level. Thorough without being overbearing, Bible Doctrine is a user-friendly book that covers all the main topics in systematic theology.

The explanations are clearly presented in terms laypeople will understand. I was surprised at the number of people who wanted a book to follow along with my lectures and the various Bible passages. All the feedback I am getting from the class would indicate this is a good book to buy for any student of Scripture who wants clear explanations of the essentials of the faith.
The adults I am teaching also are mostly age 60 or older too, just in case you are wondering if it is only for younger people. With all their Bible knowledge, these adults are enjoying this Bible doctrine book.
That said, this is hardly a classroom only text- this is perfect for any believer or teacher seeking a text that will engage without overwhelming, inform the mind and transform the heart.
My only problem with the book is that it is specific for a Calvinist / fundamentalist / biblical literalist approach to understanding the bible but does not announce this fact. More liberal or just plain different approaches to understanding the bible exist, but they aren't really even offered a mention in this book. So while Grudem is the champion of this systematic approach, it's kind of just a survey of how his camp approaches splits in thought on different doctrines without giving the time of day to other thinkers.
