This Systematic Theology covers standard topics such as the nature of God and the works of God to the second coming of Christ, from mission nature to the role of the church. What is interesting about this Systematic Theology is that while Corrin is in the charismatic tradition spends, he 3/4 of his work dedicated to matters of the Holy Spirit, spiritual warfare, and other charismatic beliefs. Well many in condition do not lunchtime delving into church history (unfortunately many other Protestant movements do not either). Carrin spends numerous pages on significant parts of church history and how they relate to the work of the Holy Spirit.
I will freely admit I was skeptical when I miss being in a very different theological tradition, yet I was pleasantly surprised at how much time he spent on this topic and quoted Manning famous preachers from Christendom for example Charles Spurgeon quotes are all over this work. And even when he writes about matters in which I disagree with him on, Carrin was more generous to other theological positions and I couldn't even hoped for.
Yet in the end well Carrin's work is impressive in the sense of its brevity for delving into the topic of systematic theology. Remedy is also its downfall even that amount of time spend on important topics such as theology proper, Anthropology, and Christology yet these sections left me with more questions than answers. This is why I will recommend this book to some and not others. This is not a blanket recommendation rather only to those or in the charismatic tradition and who have other works that can supplement this work on systematic theology.
This book was provided to me free of charge via CrossFocused Reviews in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.
This book contains 18 sections that range from “Who is God?” to “What gifts does the Holy Spirit impart to believers?” Within each of those divisions are the 300 questions. After deciding which query to learn about, go to the page number and get your question answered. The responses are very clear, concise, and written on a layperson’s level. The answers vary in size from just a few paragraphs to a couple of pages.
Spirit-Empowered Theology is easy to use and is a treasure of information. Couple that with this book’s easy to understand answers and this is a real winner. You will find yourself looking up one question, and once answered, looking up another that has caught your curiosity. It is very addicting. I highly recommend this 5-star book to anyone who has ever had a question about Christianity.
Charles Carrin is a well respected pastor who has been in the ministry for more than 65 years. In his formative years, he was taught the gifts of the Holy Spirit were not for today. He taught that for many years until he experienced a personal crisis and sought out the Holy Spirit for himself. Since then, he has been a firm believer that the Holy Spirit’s gifts are for today. This book is written from that viewpoint.
