    1 star1 starNo starNo starNo star    Doesn't do it for me

    I'm sure Dr Grudem is a great Christian and a lovely man and will be in the front row in heaven. But, and I'm sorry to disagree with all the other reviewers here, I strongly dislike and disagree with this book.

    Grudem *appears* to give space to opposing views, but really only in order to knock them down patronisingly (and with little real argument), and to leave us with his hard-line ultra-Reformed literalist viewpoint as apparently the only 'biblical' possibility. On almost every single point, I believe Grudem's analysis is lacking, and I disagree with pretty much all of his conclusions.

    Ultimately, the Bible is not a book of systematic theology, and Christianity is not a faith merely of intellectual propositions. Any attempt to systematise the faith and the Bible can only fall short of the real thing, and Grudem's falls about as far short as you can get - in my opinion.

    Nowadays I consult Grudem to see what the other half thinks, and go to books by people like NT Wright for (what I consider to be) a more balanced, unbiased and helpful approach to the Bible.

    However, I guess Grudem is a good introduction to theological issues. And he's unbeatable if you want to believe in literal 6-day creation, 5-point Calvinism, extreme biblical inerrancy, exclusively male leadership, eternal conscious torment and all the other things that stick in my spiritual craw.

    A very good book, but some sections do not prove their points, for example, the brief dismissal of the Bible teaching on Soul Sleep and very little on the assumption of Heaven-going

    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Well presented, honest, fair and hard to dispute

    Grundem has written a Christian masterpiece. An extremely honest, heart/soul searching address of Christian theological issues. His honest approach and fair representation of the various views on subjects gives you confidence that this writer is doing all he can to help the reader through the confusing labyrinth of theology. He presents his arguments fairly, concisely and in an easy manner. He gives equal attention to opposing views too - incredibly unbiased. A must for the serious reader who wants to search the richness of God's Word.
