Reviews - What do customers think about Bitesize Theology?
Solid, simple, effective and practical Jun 5, 2004
If you are looking for a simple, effective, biblical and practical book, this book is for you. I have brought this book into my church and used in Sunday School and translated it into Turkish language and it is about to be published in Turkey. This book is a short summary of 'Systematic Theology'. I would recommend another book which would contribute to this book called 'God's Big Picture'.
The Place to Begin in Learning Theology Oct 2, 2003
This book is a great intro to theology for christians. Jeffery begins the book with two chapters on why we need theology and then proceeds systematically through key doctrines. The doctrines that he covers are God, Jesus, The Holy Spirit, The Trinity, Sin, Atonemnet, Grace, Regeneration, Repentance and Faith, Reconciliation, Redemption, Justification, Adoption, Union with Christ, Sanctification, Election, Eternal Security, and The Second Coming. Jeffery is brief and to the point on these doctrines, and ends each chapter with a thought-provoking quote from historic defenders of these doctrines, and with questions to think about, and a book recommended for further reading. A must read for Christians!
Christian Theology for Dummies! Simply Superb! Sep 29, 2003
This book could have also been entitled "Theology for Dummies," and I say that as a great compliment. Having received seven years of seminary training, I have waded through my fair share of deep, hard-to-read theological works. From Emil Brunner to Dale Moody, I have covered a spectrum of authors. I cannot remember one of those theological titles that I would recommend to the average church member in my congregation.
This work however, I recommend wholeheartedly. People in our churches today are starving for straightforward, biblically based, easy-to-read theology. Jeffery here speaks to the layperson as he outlines key doctrines of the Christian faith. Among the doctrines explained are: God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Trinity, Sin, Grace, Regeneration, Justification, Sanctification, and the Second Coming. I'm recommending this book to my church librarian as an addition to the materials available to our congregation. It is simply a superb primer on Christian theology!
