A very clear introduction on Reformed Theology Mar 17, 2007
Being a non-Reformed person, I have always wanted a clear explanation of the Reformed viewpoint without a lot of the theological jargon. I found it in this wonderful book by R.C. Sproul. He explains the foundations of Reformed theology and the 5 Points of Reformed Theology.
The chapters in this book are as follows:
Part 1 Foundations of Reformed Theology
1 Centered on God 2 Based on God's Word Alone 3 Committed to Faith Alone 4 Devoted to the Prophet, Priest and King 5 Nicknamed Covenant Theology
Part 2 5 Points of Reformed Theology
6 Humanity's Radical Corruption 7 God's Sovereign Choice 8 Christ's Purposeful Atonement 9 The Spirit's Effective Call 10 God's Preservation of the Saints
R.C. Sproul explains with very clear text and helpful charts all the essentials of Reformed theology -- TULIP, covenant theology, God's Sovereignty, Limited Atonement, etc. This helped me so much to get a good overview and understanding of the essentials of Reformed Theology. Highly recommended!!
Bible Study book Jan 6, 2007
Ten women in a PCA church are monthly discussing the contents. Not an easy read but a great one. It is a good review of theology.especially if you come from a reformed tradition but if not it explains a lot of things- especially the differences between Catholic and Protestant views.
Wow, this book is a great Sunday School book! Nov 15, 2006
