13 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Chris Of The OT on 1 Mar. 2007
Format: Hardcover
Millard Erickson's `Christian Theology' is both massive and massively impressive: it is easily the longest book I've ever attempted to read cover-to-cover so it needed to excel in every way. And so it does.

Erickson divides this work into twelve large parts containing sixty chapters (if ever a book needed Amazon's excellent `Search Inside' feature, this is it!):

Part 1: Studying God

Part 2: Knowing God

Part 3: What God is Like

Part 4: What God Does

Part 5: Humanity

Part 6: Sin

Part 7: The Person of Christ

Part 8: The Work of Christ

Part 9: The Holy Spirit

Part 10: Salvation

Part 11: The Church

Part 12: The Last Things

After a brief introduction, Erikson begins Part 1 by defining theology generally before emphasising how important the great schools of philosophical thought are to theological study. They are very effective foils for each other and theology, literally, grows and develops because of philosophy's criticisms. Part 1 continues to around page 170, and while this part is informative and very valuable, I found it the most difficult, boring and complicated part of the whole book! I needed real perseverance here because once Erickson moves onto the biblically focused parts (i.e. all the rest), `Christian Theology' becomes a much more palatable, very rewarding read.

By the time we get to Part 2, we find discussion on God's revelation of himself - directly (i.e. personal, or `Particular') and indirectly (i.e. through the Bible, or `Universal') - and how authoritative that may or may not be.

Format: Hardcover
This book is comprehensive and far sighted, but also simple in presentation and terminology. Erickson presents the positions of major theologians on all the issues and critiques fairly the opinions of modern philosophers and early church fathers. He is encouragingly insightful and original. The best thing about this book is that it's well indexed and easy to use as reference. Simple chapters and sub-headings make it easy to 'dip' in and out!

Format: Hardcover
Erickson's language may be simple, but not simplistic. Interfaith theology students will find the book absent of theological "good guys" and "bad guys." The book creatively presents "hard core" theology in plain, contemporary language. Students of theology from non-English speaking countries may happily find Erickson's sources adequate for thesis writing!

Format: Hardcover
Erickson's Christian Theology is an excellent resource for the Seminary student and for anyone who wants to understand the different issues in Christian doctrines and theories. Erickson does well in showing different views and theories surrounding doctrines, summing up each chapter with his own synthesized opinion. My only criticism is the length of each chapter. They all seem to be about 20 pages. While some topics need to be looked at more in depth others are drawn out. I couldn't help but think that I was being short-changed on some topics.

This book is perhaps the best introduction to theologians and theological issues. Erickson presents complex doctrines in a clear and readable way. Now updated and with a section on post-modernism.
