Product Description


How do we know the Bible is God’s Word? What is sin and where did it come from? How is Jesus fully God and fully man? What are spiritual gifts? When and how will Christ return? If you’ve asked questions like these, then “systematic theology” is no abstract term. It’s an approach to finding answers every Christian needs to know.

Bible Doctrine takes a highly commended upper-level textbook on systematic theology and makes it accessible to the average reader. Abridged from Wayne Grudem’s award-winning Systematic Theology, Bible Doctrine covers the same essentials of the faith, giving you a firm grasp on seven key topics: ? The Doctrine of the Word of God ? The Doctrine of God ? The Doctrine of Man ? The Doctrines of Christ and the Holy Spirit ? The Doctrine of the Application of Redemption ? The Doctrine of the Church ? The Doctrine of the Future

Like Systematic Theology, this book is marked by its clarity, its strong scriptural emphasis, its thoroughness in scope and detail, and its treatment of such timely topics as spiritual warfare and the gifts of the Spirit. But you don’t need to have had several years of Bible school to reap the full benefits of Bible Doctrine. It’s easy to understand—and it’s packed with solid, biblical answers to your most important questions -- Publisher

From the Publisher

Systematic theology can be an intimidating subject to tackle. But Bible Doctrine makes it accessible to students and laypersons who want to understand more about the Bible, God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, Mankind, Redemption, the Church, and the Future. An abridgment of Grudem's classic text, Systematic Theology, this book meets a need expressed by many who value his scholarship and writing ability but want a theology book that is understandable on a non-graduate-student level. Thorough without being overbearing, Bible Doctrine is a user-friendly book that covers all the main topics in systematic theology.

Format: Hardcover
I found this book easy to read and theologically solid. The arguments presented were great introductions to the deeper issues of systematic theology. Grudem, humbly weighs important issues with an emphasis on Biblical truth opposed to the temptation of sentimentalism. Honestly, if you are not intimidated by the size of Grudem's "Systematic Theology", I would recommend that you go ahead and buy that one instead. On the other hand, if you want to "get through" a great systematic study this might be more what you're looking for. To put it another way, Bible Doctrine would be a great text book for grades eleven through college, but Systematic Theology could keep you going up through intro classes in seminary.

Format: Hardcover
This condensed version of Grudem's Systemtic Theology, edited by Jeff Purswell, is an excellent resource for any library. Most pastors and teachers will probably stick with the larger volume, but for laypeople, this edition is hard to beat.
I have used this book in teaching Sunday School, and have been fairly impressed with the editorial decisions made. The book is accessible and yet meaty. Added are review questions and a very helpful glossary. Highly recommended!

By Rick Aguirre on Nov. 24 1999
Format: Hardcover
This work by Grudem is solid and easy to read. I guess one would purchase this for the application sections? For a much more in depth examination of Christian doctrine, one is better to purchase Grudem's systematic theology. Or even better-from the same tradition, R.L Reymond's recent systematic theology.

Format: Hardcover
This book is a great theology book. The layout is excellent. It is easy reading. The theology is thourough. It gives many sides although you can tell which view the author takes. It's very good. I would recommend this book for every Christian to read.
