My third full scale systematic theology text this year, and my least favorite of the three Written in 1949, this text reads very academic and very dry It covers all of the essential ologies expected in a systematic theology textbook, but for the most part, the prose was clipped, and felt clogged by all of the relevant Scriptural verses that are inserted in almost every sentence If you re looking for a theology textbook that highlights all of the necessary Bible verses in presenting its doctr My third full scale systematic theology text this year, and my least favorite of the three Written in 1949, this text reads very academic and very dry It covers all of the essential ologies expected in a systematic theology textbook, but for the most part, the prose was clipped, and felt clogged by all of the relevant Scriptural verses that are inserted in almost every sentence If you re looking for a theology textbook that highlights all of the necessary Bible verses in presenting its doctrinal positions, this is a good reference book If you re looking for a theology textbook that walks you clearly through different historical positions and the development of each doctrine, or for a book filled with quotable sentences for seminary assignments, this is less useful Recommended for seminary students only This is a great book to dive into the study of theology Although I don t agree with some of Dr Thiessen s views of certain doctrines, he explains quite thoroughly the method and development of theology As a Christian, my personal growth in Christ has increased exponentially due to this book I now readSystematic Theology books with clarity and understanding, not to mention my personal study of the Scriptures are alsoin depth. A well written book on the basic tenets of Christianity as set forth in God s Word the Bible Using it for one of my classes. Perhaps dry, but just packed with with information. Excellent overview Solid. This writer has some of the best and most concise ways of explaining things that might normally take a while to explain Very detailed and organized logically. In this comprehensive introduction to systematic theology, Thiessen addresses a wide range of substantive issues in sections on theism, bibliology, theology, angelology, anthropology, soteriology, ecclesiology, and eschatology The theological positions presented here would most likely please members of the Baptist denomination.
