    Excellent presentation of reformed protestant theology

    If you are looking for a book that presents in a clear, lucid, and readable manner the nuances of of modern reformed theology, this is it! Guthrie uses the apostles creed as a basis for discussing christian theology in general and reformed theology in particular. Each section of the apostles creed is used as a basis for presenting a systematic theology from a reformed perspective. The book begins with a detailed account of God, his attributes and how we know them. One chapter contains an excellent summary of the arguments for and against a natural theology. However, Guthrie cogently argues for the view that we ultimately must start with God's revelation of himself in Jesus. Guthrie, like Barth, is not sympathetic to the view that very much can be known about God from abstract philosophical reasoning about the natural world. Personally, I was most impressed with his discussion of predestination. His discussion of this doctrine is evenhanded and thorough. For those, like me, who find this to be one of the most troubling aspects of traditional reformed theology, Guthrie's discussion was very helpful. I also enjoyed his chapters on the trinity and the resurrection. He is strongly trinitarian and basically traditional in his understanding of the resurrection. His discussion of the resurrection in terms of what it means for us today and continues to mean is excellent. I strongly recommend this book to anyone seriously interested in christian theology, especially from a protestant point of view. It combines two qualities rare in modern theology, clarity and depth.
