"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

'“As a theology professor at Biola University where our students have to take three semesters of Christian doctrine I feel like I co-teach all my classes with Wayne Grudem. His Systematic Theology provides the core theology content for all my classes and most of the other undergraduate theology courses at the University. It excels in its clarity, readability, and biblically based approach that seeks to get theology into real life. Systematic Theology consistently accomplishes its obvious goal throughout---to lead the reader to greater knowledge and worship of the God of the Bible.' Talbot School of Theology of Biola University -- K. Erik Thoennes
“Our college has chosen this work as a standard textbook for all theology students over the last 10 years. No other theology text combines readability, range of views, and the ever-essential quality of reinforcing our systematic theologies with scripture… Each chapter closes with application questions, special terms, additional bibliography, a cross-section of other systematic texts with page numbers, a passage for memory, and a hymn…all centered on the theology of that chapter. A treasure chest of theological resource and relevance---and that’s only the end of each chapter!” Toccoa Falls College -- W. Brian Shelton

I have found the theology to be extremely useful. I bought his other book, "Bible Doctrine" and I thought it was good but a bit imcomplete. This book far surpasses it. If I would have gotten this one first, I would have been much happier. It is very complete and references Scripture very frequently when compared to many books on theology. I have not found any scriptures written out of context or ideas that were not taken from Scripture.
I like the way the book is written. Each chapter does not rely on the others meaning you can skip strait to the last chapter and understand it well. It covers the best choice of topics. You can see those topics by searching inside the book so I will not elaborate.
I think that if you have been introduced to reformed theology and have a hard time deciding what the Bible teaches, this book can help you bring that issue to a rest.
If you are a evangelical Christian, this book deserves a spot in your library.
The book is clearly written and easily understood both by the layperson as well as the scholar of theology. Provided at the end of each chapter is a "Questions for Personal Application" which makes the book very suitable for both group and individual studies. There is also a listing of special terms used, a bibliography followed by a listing of "Other Works" that may be applicable, an applicable scripture memory passage, and a Hymn that often pertains to the subject of that chapter. Grudem in his presentation often examines the historical or traditional viewpoint of the topics being presented; as such he is not a follower of the latest theological fade despite the fact that he does quote Berkhof fairly often. For instance, he points out in his chapter on eschatology - the study of future events - that the theory of a "secret" rapture of the church and a following "millennium" is a fairly recent viewpoint; that the traditional or historical church had much differing viewpoints on these subjects. "The problem with this solution is that it is hard to derive two separate comings of Christ from the passages that predict his return." ("The Return of Christ: When and how?" -page 1100).
This book is some 1221 pages long and is not the book that one would read during a Sunday afternoon. It is a book that requires much thought and study if one is to really gain any insight into Christian doctrine. I would recommend it as a course book either in a formal or informal environment guided by someone that is fairly knowledgeable in theology. It took me over 6 months to fully study and digest its contents and even today, wish to find the time to go back and study certain key sections.
