Product Description

From the Author

Wayne Grudem is professor of biblical and systematic theology at Trinitiy Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. He holds degrees from Harvard (B.A.), Westminster Seminary (M.Div.), and Cambridge (Ph.D.). He is the co-editor of Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood

From the Back Cover

The Christian church has a long tradition of systematic theology, that is, studying theology and doctrine organized around fairly standard categories such as the Word of God, redemption, and Jesus Christ. This introduction to systematic theology has several distinctive features: - A strong emphasis on the scriptural basis for each doctrine and teaching - Clear writing, with technical terms kept to a minimum - A contemporary approach, treating subjects of special interest to the church today - A friendly tone, appealing to the emotions and the spirit as well as the intellect - Frequent application to life - Resources for worship with each chapter - Bibliographies with each chapter that cross-reference subjects to a wide range of other systematic theologies.

5.0 out of 5 stars In many ways, this is an excellent work Oct. 22 2002
Format:Hardcover
I have given this work by Wayne Grudem 5 stars not because I agree word for word with everything he espouses here, because I don't. I am of the view that theology, as a discipline, is like any other discipline in being a human endeavor, and therefore, is fallible. When reviewing works of theology, I believe in being careful about not expecting any theological work to approach a level of infallibility that only Scripture can ever attain. But in reading and reviewing theological material, I do expect the author to put forth an intelligent, logical, rational, persuasive BIBLICAL presentation that hangs together internally as well as biblically. So despite my reservations and disagreements with some of what Grudem puts forth here, I think it deserves 5 stars because in my view, this work gets the job done.
There are a number of clear strengths to this book. First, this book is by far the most accessible systematic treatment of theology I've ever read. If there is any systematic theology book that theology novices could really sink their teeth into, this is it. This book, while effectively dealing with the many difficult theological issues that need to be dealt with in any adequate systematic theology, avoids drowning these difficult issues in difficult terminology that too many systematic theologies wrongly assume are common terms that non-theology focused Christians understand and don't need defining. This is what makes so many systematic theologies inaccessible to most Christians.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Systematic April 10 2004
Format:Hardcover
Most reviews below capture the essence of Grudem's work so hopefully I will add a comment or two without repeating other reviewers' compliments.
First, Grudem quotes many of his supporting texts. This makes for facility, rather than looking up the text.
Second, he interacts with several traditions thoughtfully.
Third, as one reviewer notes already, he has a good annotated bibliography at the end. If one read the bibliography, especially our a-theological pastors, the health of the church would rise. He cites Reformed, Anglican, Lutheran, Baptist, Dispensational and Papist works (usually pre-Vat 2 Ludwig Ott and post-Vat 2 Prof O'Brien). Excellent bibliograpy.
Fourth, Grudem attempts to incorporate doxological intent to each subject by inclusion of an historic hymn at the end. This is healthy given the American penchant to think the church began 10 years ago.
Every evangelical seminary student should own and read this, of any perspective. Of course, for liberal seminary students, this might be over their heads and we would recommend something much shorter, maybe Berkof's Manual of Christian Doctrine---as a warm-up.
Thanks Wayne for your clear labor of love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful and useful systematic Feb. 26 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Strengths - (1) Grudem's Systematic is very readable, written in a very clear and precise style. (2) Grudem interacts well with most of the trends in modern evangelicalism. His critiques of Pinnock and his Arminian friends are outstanding. (3) Grudem summarizes a lot of his own research in the chapters and sections on inerrancy, gender issues, the descent of Christ into hades, church polity, and spiritual gifts. A lot of this is outstanding material that you cannot find anywhere else. (4) Other sections, such as the canon of scripture, the ordo salutis, and eschatology are very good. (5) Grudem provides strong scriptural support for his positions. (6) There is a good emphasis on personal applications. A lot of this material will preach. It can be used in Bible studies and sermons. (7) It contains very useful bibliographic information. Weaknesses: (1) There is almost a total lack of historical theology and interaction with non-evangelical theologians. (2) Grudem spends too much space discussing minor disagreements with his colleagues at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. (3) Too much space is devoted to Grudem's pet issues (spiritual gifts) while other issues are neglected (general and special revelation).(4) The heavy emphasis on charismatic theology in a couple of chapters is likely to make the book offensive to people who could benefit from the rest of the chapters. (5) The chapter on the atonement lacks the kind of synthesis that you find, for example, in Erickson's Systematic. But despite these weaknesses, Grudem's Systematic is one of the best recent systematics by an evangelical and definitely worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for every Evangelical's library May 8 2004
Format:Hardcover
Grudem's Systematic Theology is not the typical boring theological treatise. It's an easy to read, clear, thoughful presentation of Evangelical theology. It is Reformed, Pre-millennial (and Post-tribulational), and is neither charismatic nor anti-charismatic (a very balanced evangelical work!). It treats opposing views fairly, though not always fully (which is typical of all Systematic Theologies). It also cross references most of the popular Syatematic Theologies of other Protostant, Evangelical, Reformed, Charismatic, and even Roman Catholic traditions. This work is witty without being reckless, readable without being simplistic, and thorough without being difficult. It is a great tool for the untrained layperson, as well as the trained clergy, regardless of the theological perspective. If I owned one Systematic theolgy, this would be the one.
