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.
