I thought that sometimes I was wading through molasses to get the author's point of view. Heavy slogging!
Recommended: to those seeking a grand vision of a remarkable author who knows his Bible.
He displays a firm grasp of Christian teaching with a deep historical and biblical learning as well as being able to make his message simple enough for the entry level theology student. His focus is on a practical theology, one that helps us to understand ourselves, God, and His purpose in our lives. Accessibility alongside accuracy with an obvious depth and breadth of understanding Christian theology makes this volume enlightening and delightful for those who agree with his central positions.
Even for all of these praises, the book still does have its downfalls. His bias against certain sects of Christianity is glaringly obvious at times, lumping Armenians in alongside heretics and spending pages describing Reformed thought while giving a few sentences explaining the Catholic point of view. Naturally a systematic theology text written from a Reformed writer would have some Reformed bias in it; however it would be nice to see other points of view have their thoughts expressed clearly instead of having a sort of straw man being set up at times.
Overall, Horton clearly addresses the major topics of God, His nature and His energies, humanity, our broken state and our redemption, and the church, its mission in the world and its place in God’s kingdom. Through these main topics and several others, Michael Horton carefully, thoughtfully, and most importantly, successfully has crafted this text of systematic theology that is a highly recommended read for anyone wanting to impact the world for Christ or learn more about God and his purpose for the world.
