Summary of Christian Doctrine Mar 24, 2006
It is very concise, clear to understand. Especially, "Question for review" was good for summary.
Reliable standard Nov 7, 2005
Berkhof's is widely acknowledged to be the best brief systematic theology written in the middle part of this century. It is reliable, balanced, concise. While free of lots of technical excusions, Berkhof was very well versed in the broader theological discussions, both classical and contemporary. As Dutch Reformed, he is more Kuyperian and less rationalist than most Anglo-American reformed theologians who preceded him. Still great for an elder training course, or for a college student preparing for seminary.
For something even more basic for interested laymen, try J I Packer's Concise Theology or R C Sproul.
For something a little older and longer, A. A. Hodge, Outlines of Theology. Of course, Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion is irreplacable.
