Overview

How do we know the Bible is God’s Word? What is sin and where did it come from? How is Jesus fully God and fully man? What are spiritual gifts? When and how will Christ return? If you’ve asked questions like these, then "systematic theology" is no abstract term. It’s an approach to finding answers every Christian needs to know. Bible Doctrine takes a highly commended upper-level textbook on systematic theology and makes it accessible to the average reader. Abridged from Wayne Grudem’s award-winning Systematic Theology, Bible Doctrine covers the same essentials of the faith, giving you a firm grasp on seven key topics: The Doctrine of the Word of God The Doctrine of God The Doctrine of Man The Doctrine of Christ The Doctrine of the Application of Redemption The Doctrine of the Church The Doctrine of the Future Like Systematic Theology, this book is marked by its clarity, its strong scriptural emphasis, its thoroughness in scope and detail, and its treatment of such timely topics as spiritual warfare and the gifts of the Spirit. But you don’t need to have had several years of Bible school to reap the full benefits of Bible Doctrine. It’s easy to understand—and it’s packed with solid, biblical answers to your most important questions.

Read an Excerpt

How do we know the Bible is God's Word? What is sin and where did it come from? How is Jesus fully God and fully man? What are spiritual gifts? When and how will Christ return? If you've asked questions like these, then "systematic theology" is no abstract term. It's an approach to finding answers every Christian needs to know.
Bible Doctrine takes a highly commended upper-level textbook on systematic theology and makes it accessible to the average reader. Abridged from Wayne Grudem's award-winning Systematic Theology, Bible Doctrine covers the same essentials of the faith, giving you a firm grasp on seven key topics:
* The Doctrine of the Word of God
* The Doctrine of God
* The Doctrine of Man
* The Doctrines of Christ and the Holy Spirit
* The Doctrine of the Application of Redemption
* The Doctrine of the Church
* The Doctrine of the Future
Like Systematic Theology, this book is marked by its clarity, its strong scriptural emphasis, its thoroughness in scope and detail, and its treatment of such timely topics as spiritual warfare and the gifts of the Spirit. But you don't need to have had several years of Bible school to reap the full benefits of Bible Doctrine. It's easy to understand—and it's packed with solid, biblical answers to your most important questions.

    EVERY Christian should own and study this book with their Bible

    I took almost a full year to study through this book, highlighting and meditating on all of what Wayne Grudem says about doctrine straight from the Bible. He presents Bible teachings from a more objective point of view, he only expresses his personal opinion on rare occasions and informs the reader when he does so. Every idea is backed up by Scripture there are many, many verses cited in the appendix. This book thoroughly explains Christianity and what the Word of God says and I HIGHLY recommend it to every single person. There were many times during my studying that I was in complete awe of what amazing theology there is to be uncovered in the Bible. I will always refer to this great book when curious about what the Bible teaches.
