Reviews - What do customers think about A Primer for Christian Doctrine?

Very Good Primer on Christian Doctrines  Jul 1, 2006
If you're looking for a short and easy-to-read but informative book on Christian doctrines for teaching or personal devotion then this book will serve your purposes well. It is especially good for lay Christians who don't have time to wade through the more heavy and technical systematic theologies that are available out there (e.g., Erickson, Grudem, etc.)

Wilson's book is not exhaustive by any means. However, it contains enough information regarding each of the standard topics of systematic theology to well inform any inquiring mind. Also, what one has to keep in mind is that Wilson is hardly ever argumentative (he rarely promotes his own theological perspective). His main purpose, instead, is to give the reader an adequate overview of the various perspectives on every major Christian doctrine.

Overall, I would highly recommend this book for ministers, students, and lay people. It is a book especially useful in a classroom setting in an introductory theology course at a Bible college or a study group at church. Though many will find the book lacking because of its length, it still serves its purpose well by giving readers enough information on the standard topics of Christian theology.
