A good resource for those seeking to know God and who He is and a good reminder for believers to regain their perspective of who God is. I am a believer with a personal relationship with God. I don't agree with some of the doctrines presented in this book(being of the Reformed church) but the meat and potatoes of Christianity is here. The small differences doesn't determine our salvation. I can unite with other Christians and the church by keeping in mind what are the notions vs. what are the landmarks. When you re-establish the basics of who God is and all His attributes you can continue to grow in your faith with what is most important....to Trust and Obey. We can't do it by trying to be the one in control and living life on our own power. This book puts the focus back on where that true power and control is. With God!
Comprehensive and yet easy to Read!
I really enjoy this book because it was so easy and to the point.
Every topic from Wayne Grudem's Systematic Theology is covered and instead of a thousand pages it is covered in about 150 pages. VERY SIMPLE READ - I would suggest this book for developing lesson plans or providing it to a believer who has a lot of questions and you want to encourage them to review their bible before they review people's opinions. This book is in no way exhaustive but hits very key points so as to "get the picture". This book take theological doctrine and tightly packs it. For instance, a chapter about God is condensed into 5 pages just as any other doctrinal issues.
If you are looking for a quick read, that is not for the serious study this book is it. Additionally, I use this in accord with my Grudem's larger book "Systematic Theology".
I also would HIGHLY SUGGEST The Moody Handbook of Theology by Paul Enns to supplement this book.
Required reading for any informed Christian
If you don't know these 20 basics you need to read this book. If you do know them, read it anyway--the way he communicates these ideas is classic, clear and concise. There are longer books on theology out there, but there are not any this clear and concise that are also this good. Great for Bible Study classes, small groups, personal study, even just to read.
