From the Back Cover
This abridgment of Erickson's classic Christian Theology gives an overview of the doctrines of revelation, God, creation, providence, humanity, sin, Jesus Christ, atonement and salvation, the church, and eschatology. Erickson's careful theological reflection is here made accessible to any serious reader.
"Clearly written and well-outlined, this book would serve as an excellent college textbook as well as being accessible to educated laypersons."--Warren McWilliams, Religious Studies Review
"This is an outstanding introduction to theology that should become a standard undergraduate textbook. It's accessible to all general readers, and I strongly recommend it to all bookstores."--John Kohlenberger III, Bookstore Journal
"Unhesitatingly recommended for use in Christian colleges."--Robert A. Pyne and Gary L. Nebeker, Bibliotheca Sacra
"This prominent publication is most worthy of serious study."--The Baptist Standard
"Erickson's goal was to write a briefer version of his popular Christian Theology--with a view to providing a primer of and transition to more extended discussions of theology. As such, Erickson admirably achieved his purposes."--B. Dale Ellenburg, Mid-America Theological Journal

He also presents a progressive view of creation, an idea which i don't particularly espouse. My main point is that he spends most of the section on that view, which is his view.
Overall a good thorough introduction.
If you are serious, this is a great place to start for studying Doctrine. Professor Erickson gives us a well written concise book on doctrine. In 400 pages he covers what some need to take 3 to 7 volumes to cover. While this is a "short" primer on Doctrine it is not Doctrine "Light". He gives full descriptions, well thought out principles and challenging thoughts on all the major doctrines of the Bible.
You won't be disappointed with this work. I have had several students who have attended Baylor University and they have always told me that Professor Erickson is one of their favorites. After working my way through his book I would have to agree.
it presented me with several options and challenged me to commit to what
I would recommend this to any person interested in broading their views on religion
and how their beliefs fit.
I need more books like this BRAVO!!!!!!!!
