    Suitable Study for All

    This introductory text to Christian theology is quite readable. Though the author understands his primary audience to be students of general-ed religion courses offered at Seventh-day Adventist colleges, the book also certainly appears to be suitable for the lay person and for anyone desiring to more fully understand Seventh-day Adventist beliefs. Pointing to the Bible as the authoritative source of religious truth, Rice proceeds to use not a proof-text-method (though relevant scriptural passages are listed on the title page of each chapter) but an approach to the study of theology which focuses on the reign of God. Readers are encouraged not to swallow the interpretation of the doctrines which is presented, but to ponder the issues carefully and determine whether they have been nourished in their study. Each chapter concludes with questions for review and for further study, along with suggestions for Bible study and for further reading, all of which can motivate the reader to seek a greater understanding of God and to further investigate His Word.
