Item description for Theology You Can Count On by Tony Evans...
Overview Readers are walked through what the Bible teaches, topic by topic, truth by truth, in a language readers can understand.
"For many people the word theology suggests seminary-educated scholars who sit in ivory towers, isolated from the real world, studying the Bible. Such study is often viewed as esoteric and unrelated to the world where men and women live, work, play, raise families, and struggle with the realities of day-to-day life. Nothing could be further from the truth." ---Tony Evans What we think about God, also known as theology, influences what we believe, do, and say. And what we think, whether true or false, makes a big difference in real life. Tony Evans wants you to know the truth about God, so "Theology You Can Count On" communicates truths about God in language you can understand. He walks through what the Bible teaches, topic by topic, truth by truth. The great thing is, these truths aren't reserved for people with PhDs. They're for real life. They're for you.

Finally! A Systematic Theology for Everybody... Mar 20, 2009
This compilation from Dr. Tony Evans is a much needed and long overdue resource. Being over twenty years in the making, "Theology You Can Count On" effectively blends theological depth and practical application which is unfortunately not characteristic of most works in this family. Most Systematics are long on information but they tragically fail to bridge the biblical teaching to the Christian in such a way that will inform their mind and impact their walk.
This massive book(almost 1400 pages)is no mere collection of sermons. It is a serious presentation that is a joy to read and is equally easy to understand. Each division of theology is broken up into smaller, digestible chapters with tools for personal application and group discussion. These combine to make "Theology You Can Count On" an excellent choice for personal study, small group, Sunday School, and Bible Institute. This comprehensive resource can even be used in one-on-one discipleship, eliminating the need to purchase multiple smaller books.
"Theology You Can Count On" though very full is not by design a scholarly treatise. And as with any theological writing, one may find points of disagreement. It is however throughly evangelical and gives great evidence to Dr. Evans' very high view of Scripture.
In conclusion, quoting Dr. Evans: "Theology, when properly understood, ought to be challenging, inspiring, transforming, and even fun." And if these are what you want from your study of God then "Theology You Can Count On" is for you. Now go have fun!
Same Old Hat - New Box Mar 3, 2009
The foundational theological errors of Tony Evans, as found in this book, are astounding. More astounding is that Evans is widly accepted as sound in theology. This fact is surely a testimony to the scriptural illiteracy and spiritual bancruptcy of our day.
This critique is not about eternal security or salvation by works verses salvation by grace either. Many great pastors, preachers and theologians embrace the doctrine of eternal security. However, Evans pushes this position far beyond biblical bounds.
Evans has lost his way. When a teacher promises paradise to practicing adulterers and drug addicts he has lost his way. When a teacher promises paradise to those who reject the Savior and even spurn His blood - that teacher has lost his way!
God help us when Christ dishonoring venom is promoted as sound theology. God help us when "Christians" can't even tell the difference.
Makes theology easy to understand Sep 26, 2008
As expected, Tony Evans has taken a very complicated subject and made it understandable. This is a very long book, about the size of the Bible, but it is broken up into short chapters. Each chapter ends with questions that make it useful for group or personal study. What I really like is that each chapter has a "Picture This" chart that explains the topic studied, with Scripture passages that relate to that topic.
The reason I enjoy Tony Evans is that he explains things with stories and examples. This is an awesome book if you want to "know what you believe." I think that Christians are being dumbed down today, and not doing their own study. This book will make it possible for all of us to grasp important theological concepts.
The only warning I would give, is that the information in this book is basically a collection of the books in his "Understanding God" series. If that is not an issue for you, then this book is highly recommended!
