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.
