Editorial Reviews

Curt Daniel (2003—of the 2nd edition)
One of the largest and best systematic theologies.
Monica M. Grecu (1988—of the 2nd edition)
[Ranks] second only to the works of Jonathan Edwards.

Reading Shedd is like discovering a family heirloom in the attic. By making him available again to a wide audience, the editor, Alan Gomes, has rendered a great service. Gomes has actually improved Shedd’s classic by taking material from the third somewhat ‘miscellaneous’ volume and inserting it into the body of the work. Many other helps (viz., glossaries, clear notations,illuminating editorial comments) make this the best edition of this work. If the questions of the authority of Scripture, God’s omniscience and omnipotence, human helplessness, the substitutionary atonement, justification, the scope of salvation, and the doctrine of endless punishment are as fiercely contested in out day as in Shedd’s, we will find DogmaticTheology as relevant as ever.
E. CALVIN BEISNER
The reissuing of Shedd’s Dogmatic Theology occasions pure joy for all who are devoted to biblically sound and historically alert theology. Here they will encounter an energetic and well-stocked mind laboring diligently to perceive the truths of Scripture, chart their interrelations, and follow their implications through high and reasoned speculation. Alan Gomes ‘s introduction --itself and inviting invitation to the delights of historical and systematic theology-- identifies not only the peculiar strengths of Shedd’s work, but also ways it can correct many errors of more recent theology. The English translations of Shedd’s many untranslated quotations enhance the work’s accessibility, as do the glossaries, which by themselves may instruct readers in theological terminology and biography alike. An eminently useful publication and a significant service to the church.
ROBERT L. SAUCY
Since its publication more than one hundred years ago, Shedd’s Dogmatic Theology has held a place of honor among the magisterial theological works of the Christian faith. God has always provided his church with good biblical theology for its nourishment and protection. This blessed provision continues in this new edition of Shedd’s classic work. The well-conceived enhancements provided by Alan Gomes greatly enrich the usefulness of this work over the previous edition, opening it up to all thoughtful readers.
