    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    A MUST-HAVE for ANYONE Interested in Christian Theology!

    This is THE book that taught me the BASICS and the advanced concepts of Christian theology -- in plain, simple (albeit somewhat archaic) language -- WITH FULL SUPPORTING BIBLE TEXT (King James Version).

    It presents Christian theology, from introductory to fairly advance concepts, as simple straightforward points, with full Bible text, rather than a list of "go look this up" cites.

    Torrey was the first dean of Moody Bible Institute and founder Bible Institute of Los Angeles, now BIOLA University. The book is actually a re-worked version of the lecture notes he used in teaching university-level classes such as Introduction to Christian Theology.

    Because of the archaic language, most people under the age of about 18 will find it hard to read.

    The format is somewhat confusing. Modern readers expect Section Heading, Point, Supporting Text, Next Point, Next Supporting Text, etc., in that order. Torrey has the material in Section Heading, Supporting Text, Summary (Point) format.

    I HIGHLY recommend this book. By itself it can take you from novice to advanced level. Even if you already are advanced, it is an excellent reference because the material is well organized AND includes full Bible text.

    I run a set of about 15 Christian and Messianic Jewish websites totaling about 4,000 pages of text and I teach at my church. I have not found ANY other book like this -- and I have searched EXTENSIVELY. Modern authors DESCRIBE their view rather than stating it simply and directly supporting it with Bible quotes. Virtually ALL other "What the Bible Teaches"-type books only use cites or are denomination-specific.

    To summarize it, the difference between Torrey's book and ALL the others on this subject is like the difference between a video that says "To do this on your computer, press these keys ...." and the typical computer manual that DESCRIBES something and then leaves you to guess how to ACTUALLY do it.

    There are 6 chapters, with subchapters under each,
    on the following subjects. Each subchapter gives
    several Bible verses quoted directly explaining it's

    1. 12 attributes of GOD the father, such as omnipresent etc.
    2. 8 fundamentals about Jesus
    3. 9 things about the Holy Spirit
    4. 18 items on man, e.g prayer
    5. 2 items on angels
    6. 4 items on the devil

    The section on prayer was the most helpful to
    me personally. It's so confusing trying to
    figure out what the requirements for "successful"
    prayer are.

    This book covers basic doctrines of Christianity for the non theologian. I have not found any book on this subject today that surpasses this work. The best part about it is that Mr. Torrey gives you Scripture on top of Scriptural in it's contextual setting. He brings out wonderful practical insights from these teachings. After studying this book you will truly know "What the Bible Teaches" on many subjects essential to the Christian faith and walk. GET IT NOW!
