    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Must have for those seeking a basic understanding of theology.

    I use this as a text book for a theology class at my church. Charles Ryrie does a good job of covering the doctrines for lay people. The outline format is helpful for clarity and understanding. He is concerned with not only affecting one's mind, but also affecting one's life.

    This literature was very timely for my own studies. I wish to one day be as insightful as Ryrie. He is very informative in Theology proper without the fluff, so it may tend to lean a little on the boring side for those of us not seeking to go "deeper" into the things of God, without getting too deep. I own the book and found it to be just what it says Basic Theology. Those of us genuinely studying theology can appreciate a book being basic, because this topic tends to be very demanding of your concentration and thought process. This book will allow one to be well informed yet with a light hearted approach.

    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Excellent book on basic conservative evangelical theology

    If you're trying to find a theology book that is easy to read, not to difficult, and gets to the point on every matter, this book is for you. Ryrie does an excellent job presenting every theological category from Theology proper to Eschatology in an easy and understandable way. Though it is not an indepth systematic theology textbook like those other ones that contain over a 1000 pages, this book won't disappoint you. Even though Ryrie doesn't spend pages upon pages on explaining or proving a doctrine he can get right to the matter with a few paragraphs. Although written from a dispensationalist and moderately Calvinistic perspective, you will not see harsh polemics against other views. Even his chapter on Eschatology doesn't contain harsh diatribe against opposing views but presents alternative views fairly and clearly. Also, his section on soteriology is very helpful emphasizing God's grace to the fullest. Even though Ryrie could have put in more categories in his book, it is understandable that he doesn't since this book is supposed to give readers a basic outline of major evangelical doctrines. If you're a new seminary student or a Christian just trying to understand what they teach at systematic theology courses this book is the right place to start. However, if you're planning to purchase this book, I would recommend you the newer edition published by Moody. The newer edition has better fonts, paper type, and a new section on Bible passages. Overall, this book should be had by any Christian that wants to understand the doctrines that come from the Bible.
