Item description for Lectures on Systematic Theology Volume 1 by Charles G. Finney & Richard Friedrich...

After 150 years, it is time for the most important work of America's greatest revivalist to be revived. This is the unadulterated theology at the foundation of Finney's revivals. These volumes are a republication of the enlarged, unabridged 1851 London (final) edition. Not only is the work before us a highly advanced moral philosophy text and logically tight systematic theology, but it is also a profoundly spiritual and devotional book. These continually interjected devotional elements make for a systematic theology as it was meant to be. Finney could not converse long on any important subject without his heart overflowing with the magnificent theme at hand in a way that vividly opens up the subject to make us see it from heaven's perspective.

Finney's Intellect and Disinterested Benevolence Shine  Dec 22, 2005
If you read one systematic theology in your lifetime, read Finney's! I've read a good number and there are no others that compare. Granted, Finney's style is challenging to today's readers. Be prepared to work systematically, just like Finney worked in crafting these Spirit-enlightened and brilliant arguments. I read Finney for the first time in my twenties. His approach to interpreting scripture changed my thinking and my life for the better. My soul was blessed as Finney exposed with such dexterity the mistakes that one can make with the Bible. While Finney is a little severe in some areas, a true benevolence rests beneath his high expectations for believers. Finney's approach holds the key, in my opinion, to exposing the heresies that continue to diminish the success of Christianity, especially in the context of evangelism to intellectually energetic minds.

Jonathan Blevins, another reviewer, treats Finney's work with no small amount of disdain. Forgive Jonathan: He is very young (he gives his age on his blog). As a young man I, too, spoke with strong conviction about things I did not well understand. There is a great deal we do not know -- much that we will still not know after reading many systematic theologies. Yet, you will treat yourself to a great adventure by reading Finney. To help with the task, get Philip Schaff's famous work "History of the Christian Church" (8 volumes). Give special attention to the period of 300 - 600 A.D., as this is the time frame when most of the christological and sotereological inventions were formalized and worked into Christian theology by means of political intrigue or force. Remember, there is no systematic theology as consequential as the Good Book itself.
Beyond Arminianism, Beyond Heresy  Jul 10, 2004
I first read Finney because of references to him in the works of A.W. Tozer (one of my favorite authors). Finney's life may have been Spirit-filled, but his understanding most certainly was not. I object to the reviewer who compares him to Jonathan Edwards--Finney takes his lawyer's mind and twists the scripture to fit his understanding of justice. His theology is indeed rational and logical--but it is in no way biblical. He proves that "the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing" (1 Cor. 1:18). Truly it was folly to Finney.

He plainly teaches against the graciousness of God and the saving power of the blood of Christ--arguing from a multiplicity of "laws" that Christ's sacrifice could not atone for our sins, but that we must pay the price for them ourselves by good works. Out of this flow Finney's concept of the Holy Spirit as the agent by which we are enabled to live perfect and holy lives--through which we are justified before God and satisfy His divine justice. No teaching has been more thoroughly refuted and despised as this: that man is saved by works, not of grace or through faith.

In fact, I wonder that Finney mentions Christ at all! What need is there for a Savior if we are fully able to save ourselves? Indeed, Finney believes that Christ died to set an example for us, so we would not take God's mercy for granted and "continue in sin that grace may abound" (Rom. 6:1). Therefore the Son of God, the blessed Lord and Savior, has shed His precious blood for no greater reason than to show us what happens if we sin?! Such heresy has rarely been uttered even by the lips of the most defiled sinner! What is more distressing is that so many today actually BELIEVE this!

I do not despise Finney as a brother in Christ, nor do I deny that He was greatly used of God in his generation to awaken many to the need for godliness and faithfulness in these last days. But I DO deny that he taught the truth concerning salvation--indeed, that he had any semblance of understanding at all. This reaches far beyond the Arminian/Calvinist debate. This theological system is founded upon the most destructive of all heresies--the denial of salvation by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and not of works (Eph. 2:8-9). Let us not be like those who "seeing do not percieve and hearing do not understand" (Isa. 6:9).
