I have grown to love this book. Admittedly, I am only half way through it so far. 5 stars!
If there is one evangelical systematic theology book to own for reference purposes, Erickson's book should be it. The positive thing about this book (in contrast to many others) is that this one covers viewpoints from various angles. Though Erickson does give his own opinions on certain matters (for instance, he is a mildly Calvinistic Baptist with premillennial leanings) he still gives a fair hearing to views that differ from his own. Not only that, Erickson is willingly to engage with non-evangelical viewpoints giving the reader the insides on what those outside of the conservative evangelical circle believe. If there is one textbook that evangelical seminaries should use for their systematic theology courses this book should be it. Though many will argue that Erickson is soft on certain theological points, they should realize that he is not out there to push one particular evangelical line (except, of course, those that are foundational to orthodox evangelical theology). Overall, the information contained in this book is very useful. It should be the standard theology textbook for any Christian library.
I've never read a better overview. This easy to read book provides an outstanding summary of the Christian faith. Reading this book is one of the best disciplines I've ever committed to.
