about

With a strong emphasis on the scriptural basis for each doctrine—what the whole Bible teaches us today about a particular topic; clear writing, with technical terms kept to a minimum; and a contemporary approach, emphasizing how each doctrine should be understood and applied by present-day Christians, Making Sense of the Bible is required reading for understanding the relevant passages of Scripture. Topics include Canon of Scripture: the list of all books that belong in the Bible; Authority of Scripture: all words in Scripture are God’s words because that is what the Bible claims for itself; Clarity of Scripture: the Bible is written so that its teachings are able to be understood by all who read it; Necessity of Scripture: the Bible is necessary for knowledge of the gospel; and Sufficiency of Scripture: Scripture contains all the words of God he intended his people to have. Written in a friendly tone, appealing to the emotions and the spirit as well as the intellect, Making Sense of the Bible helps readers overcome wrong ideas, make better decisions on new questions, and grow as Christians.

Wayne Grudem is research professor of Theology and Biblical Studies at Phoenix Seminary in Phoenix, Arizona. He holds degrees from Harvard (AB), Westminster Theological Seminary (MDiv, DD), and Cambridge (PhD). He is the author of more than a dozen books including the bestselling Systematic Theology.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Refreshing I asked for this as a Christmas gift one year because I had heard it was one of the only (if not, THE only) book on systematic theology that is written by someone who is not a paedo-baptist. On that note alone, it was a refreshing change. Overall, I found it to be readable, concise, well-thought out, logical and devotional. The grand subject is God Himself, and Grudem is anxious to extol His praises. Each chapter concludes with questions for personal application, special terms, a Scripture memory passage, and a related hymn, so that you can easily use each chapter as an extended devotional. The only weaknesses I found with it was his view that special revelation was still possible. This opens up a can of worms. The canon of Scripture was closed with the book of Revelation. The other was his wavering on Creation. He starts out the chapter strong enough, but then seems to cave to the possibility of theistic evolution. If you take that stand, then you have death before sin, and the Bible is clear that before Adam sinned, there was no death (so no fossils), but when man sinned, death entered the world. Otherwise, I really enjoyed it, and would recommend it over Systematic Theology by Louis Berkhof, Charles Hodge or any other systematic theology text available.
