Publishers Description "
The Moody Handbook of Theology" leads the beginner into the appreciation and understanding of this essential field of study. It introduces the reader to the five dimensions that provide a comprehensive view of theology: biblical, systematic, historical, dogmatic and contemporary. The apostle Paul wrote that all Scripture is 'profitable for teaching' (2 Tim. 3:16), that Timothy should 'pay close attention to...your teaching' (1 Tim. 4:16), and that leaders should 'be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict' (Titus 1:9). When he wrote these statements, Paul was referring to theology.
Beyond giving basic definitions and general descriptions, author Paul Enns summarized the substantial features of theology. In this way, he provides a concise doctrinal reference tool for the newcomer as well as the seasoned scholar seeking a refresher. There are fifty-five informative charts located at strategic points throughout the book.

The Moody Handbook of Theology by Paul Enns Jan 13, 2008
I thank God for the Moody Handbook of Theology. I will continue to enjoy reading and re-reading this book. This book is going to be a great and valuable reference tool for me in years to come.
I love this book. One of the reasons is because it is non bias. It teaches basic BIBLE doctrine. It just sates the facts. Enns is very effective in describing various systems of belief. The book is well written and well organized. It also gives references to allow me to go further in my studies.
There were topics that I was not even interested in learning about. The Moody Hand Book on Theology changed that. There were topics that were not clear to me until I picked this book up. This is a fantastic book.

Excellent Book on Theology Aug 25, 2007
This book is great! I have Wayne Grudem's Systematic Theology and although that is great - this book does no side stepping whatso ever. I actually received this book and read it in a week. Reformed, Calvinistic Theology at its best (IMHO). It is very too the point and gives variances along the way to the controversial doctrines; and yet, gives you the opportunity to see it from multiple sides. I highly suggest this book those Spiritual "Young Adults" ( I John ) Who are laying their foundatin to grow up in the Spiritual Fathers ( I John ). This is a very well written book.
Practical Jan 3, 2007
This book covers basic Bible doctrine. The format is conducive to study. This is a thorough study for both the layman and the theology student in training. Enns uses plenty of references to allow students to build a biblical framework for the doctrines.
Great book but not very great. Jan 31, 2006
This is a fantastic book - but in the overall scheme of God's Word and the study of it, me thinks it's not "very great". Useful perhaps as a starting point on the theological road.
Outstanding overview of major theological generes Oct 4, 2005
I have had this book for years and refer to it quite frequently for a quick bursh-up on theology. Enns has done an excellent job of outlining salient facts on major areas of theological thought. The presentation methodology; of giving brief descriptions and using tables or charts, where needed; makes the material very accessible to the seminarian and layperson alike. Each chapter has a very useful Notes and Bibliography section should you wish to get deeper into any topic.
This is an excellent tool that one can use for years to come. Outstanding contribution. Thank you.
