Who cares what is going on with Mr. Driscoll lately, that is totally outside of what this book is about and how amazing it is. If you haven't already seen what is online for it, then you should watch those sermons and buy this book! Every christian should have this book! I seriously go back to it to check doctrine, or look something up more than any other catechism book I own.
Unlike so many systematic theologies, which are usually as dry as a bone, I found this one highly readable. In its discussion of the trinity I was a bit surprised that they omitted the fact that the Hebrew word `elohiym' is in the plural (Gen 1:1). It covers the major doctrines of the Christian faith. It would suit beginner to intermediate Christians and group study. Chapter headings are:
1. Trinity: God is. 2. Revelation: God speaks. 3. Creation: God makes. 4. Image: God loves. 5. Fall: God judges. 6. Covenant: God pursues. 7. Incarnation: God comes 8. Cross: God dies. 9. Resurrection: God saves. 10. Church: God sends. 11. Worship: God transforms. 12. Stewardship: God gives. 13. Kingdom: God reigns.
It includes small group resources, a general index and a scripture index.
