Reviews - What do customers think about Charts Of Christian Theology And Doctrines?
Outline of Christian doctrines Mar 24, 2007
A good review of the Christian Doctrines as formulated by man and not really mentioned by Christ. We have 2,000 years of religious wars based on what man has felt the religion should be rather than what Christ had to say. Review all of these doctrines here. It is a great summary in diagramatic and table form that summarizes well and is a good place to start to get an overview. My concern is that the message gets lost in the doctrine. Not for the casual reader. If you are indeed serious on the subject, this is the place to start.
Very Handy, Helpful Reference Feb 6, 2007
This book is a wonderful starting point for studying (and preparing lessons on) issues of in-house Christian debate, such as predestination vs. free will, which it summarizes in four tables on six pages.
Other tables cover alternative views on biblical inerrancy, theories of inspiration, the Trinity, original sin, the Atonement, water baptism, "tongues", the rapture, the millennium, etc. For each issue, the chart lists positions, adherents/proponents and descriptions/explanations.
The book also has a number of straightforward lists, such as Messianic prophecies fulfilled, names of God, biblical teachings on the Holy Spirit, etc. The book concludes with an extensive bibliography.
I highly recommend it as a very handy, helpful reference.
Phenomenal Resource Jul 6, 2006
This is a great suite of information, and very even-handedly presented. I've been looking for a quick referece guide of this nature for years. Indispensable as a ready reference that presents core theological perspectives represented in volumes of other works.
Good synopsis - great bibliography May 24, 2006
H. Wayne House has set out to give his readers a simplified picture of major theological positions. His chart book covers topics from (selected of course) theories of inerrancy to the historical development of the doctrine of the Trinity. He includes several theories of Kenosis and many differing views on the issue of "Tongues". House as well presents some of the major divergences on Christian understandings of the sacraments and even tackles with the ever-divisive issues of eschatology. Though I'd have to admit House at times does reveal his particular leanings for or against certain lines of reasoning, he does an excellent overall job of giving a brief synopsis and maintains a high level of respect for each view with which he is in dialogue. House's chart book is a spectacular resource for people looking to see contrasting views in their basic forms and who seek to understand the pillars on which these views are built. Those of you just about to head off to Bible Colleges should defiantly pick this one up and as you progress in your studies make sure to use the best resource House provides - his amazing bibliography!
Chart Format Ideal for Dispelling Confusion May 10, 2006
The side-by-side comparisons chart format is a visual alternative to sifting thru narrative about who believes what within Christendom. Nine key areas of theology are covered--Bibliology, Soteriology (study of salvation), Eschatology (study of endtimes), etc. But before getting into the specific areas, chapter one broad theological systems and views--Roman Catholicism, Reformed, Arminian, Neo-Orthodox, covenenant theology vs. dispensationalism, etc. Differences about specifics follow in chapters devoted to each of the 9 theology categories. The charts are factual, without commentary, advocacy or obvious bias for one view over another. I've found this reference book to be particularly helpful for sharing with nonChristians wanting to know the belief differences between one group or another.
