Navigation: On a Kindle, one can use the GO TO function to get to any chapter. In between the Cover and the Preface there is a full table of contents with links to divisions and subdivisions within the chapters. So if you know where the content you want is located, you can get there in a few steps.
But I did not see any sort of index. If you do not already know where the content you are interested in is located, you would need to use the search feature and hope that the key word(s) you select will be the same ones the author used in at least part of his discussion of the topic.
The lack of an index will not be a large problem for those wanted to read entire sections, and who can find the desired entire section in the table of contents. But depending on how well your device handles searches and its own indexing, the lack of an index could be an issue for some readers. I debated whether the lack of an index was enough to lower the rating from 5 stars to 4, but left it at 5 stars.
I have yet to read the entire book, but my initial skimming is consistent with my high hopes for it. Other reviewers have addressed the actual content in much greater detail, and I refer you to them on that subject.
An expert and extremely useful systematic theology useful across denominations. Written by a renowned Reform theologian this systematic theology offers a wealth of valuable information without pressing too heavily on dogmas that divide.
Prof. Berkhof uses many, many references to demonstrate that all the teaching is from the Bible itself. There are useful study questions and suggestions for further thought at the end of each chapter, as well as suggestions for further reading. Many of these sources are on-line and many are available for use on your Kindle!
