Item description for Bible Doctrine by Wayne A. Grudem & Jeff Purswell...

Overview
How do we know the Bible is God?s Word? What is sin and where did it come from? How is Jesus fully God and fully man? What are spiritual gifts? When and how will Christ return?
If you?ve asked questions like these, then "systematic theology" is no abstract term. It?s an approach to finding answers every Christian needs to know.
Bible Doctrine takes a highly commended upper-level textbook on systematic theology and makes it accessible to the average reader. Abridged from Wayne Grudem?s award-winning Systematic Theology, Bible Doctrine covers the same essentials of the faith, giving you a firm grasp on seven key topics:
The Doctrine of the Word of God The Doctrine of God The Doctrine of Man The Doctrine of Christ The Doctrine of the Application of Redemption The Doctrine of the Church The Doctrine of the Future
Like Systematic Theology, this book is marked by its clarity, its strong scriptural emphasis, its thoroughness in scope and detail, and its treatment of such timely topics as spiritual warfare and the gifts of the Spirit. But you don?t need to have had several years of Bible school to reap the full benefits of Bible Doctrine. It?s easy to understand--and it?s packed with solid, biblical answers to your most important questions.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bible Doctrine?

Pastor/Professor   Nov 9, 2006
Wayne Grudem edits his outstanding Systematic Theology into a more condensed version that I have found excellent for use in small group studies. His works line my bookshelves. I am using this particular volume to prepare our church for classes on theology that we will be launching next year, (using the longer Systematic Theology as the required textbook).
 
Theology we can all understand  Nov 9, 2006
I've been using this book as part of a leadership curriculum at my church and all the participants love Grudem! Many are seeking to get the larger "Systematic Theology" book. This is a condensed version of that but excellent although missing some chapters that could be useful (Doctrine of the Holy Spirit for one). Every easy to read and very well written. Grudem takes a very humble position on those areas of theology where there is disagreement while defending core beliefs of the the evangelical persuasion. Excellent!
 
Stick with the big book  Mar 28, 2006
As a HUGE fan of Grudem's original Systematic Theology (as my review of that book makes clear), I thought this might make a good alternative to recommend to church members who may be a little intimidated by the larger volume. I haven't found it to be as useful as I had hoped. Issues come up where people in the church have questions on certain subjects, and more often than not, this book doesn't address the subject they want to look into.

For example, someone approached me wanting to learn more about how the Bible came into being and why we believe that these particular writings are considered the inspired word of God. I looked in the chapters on the word of God in this volume, and it doesn't even address the subject of how and by what criteria the canon came to be defined. I know this volume is just supposed to cover the basics, but if we haven't established why we consider these particular writings to be the authoritative word of God, we have no basis for saying anything else.

I think that the problem is that the original Systematic Theology was already so readable and easy to understand that the editors of this volume weren't really able to improve upon it from that standpoint; all they accomplished was to chop away a lot of useful material. If you're looking for a good, readable, understandable presentation of Christian beliefs for the lay person, I'd recommend that you spend the extra money and get Grudem's original Systematic Theology instead.
 
The Best for the Basics  May 10, 2005
Bible Doctrine is one of the textbooks I have assigned reading from in a doctrine/theology small group I lead at my church. Edited by Jeff Purswell, Waynge Grudem's 1,200 page Systematic Theology is neatly trimmed down to a mere 450 pages, yet retains the overall force of Grudem's argument. Written in a clear and concise didactic form, Grudem exposits hundreds of Scripture passages that supports his Calvinist/Baptist theology mixed with a dash of Pentecostalism.

The sub-title says "Essentials Teachings of the Christian Faith" which is for the most part true. However, Grudem/Purswell include a chapter called "Male and Female" that simply is a chapter devoted to the subordination of women-something that is hardly "essential."

nevertheless, this is a great book for anyone wanting to learn the basic doctrines of the Christian faith or Calvinistic doctrine. At the end of every chapter there are some review questions for mastering the material and application questions for making the material relevant to real life.
 
Great Theology Book  May 29, 2003
This book is a great theology book. The layout is excellent. It is easy reading. The theology is thourough. It gives many sides although you can tell which view the author takes. It's very good. I would recommend this book for every Christian to read.
