Grudem has managed to write a systematic theology which is easily readable without compromising on content, that expresses the authors opinion and reasons without being dogmatic (while presenting fairly alternative views) and which is both practical and scholarly. In short, the author has achieved what every good systematic theology should aim for. The writer comes from a reformed perspective, and his material relating to the charismatic gifts is welcome in a modern theology, marking it out from the alternatives. Like many others have found, I suspect this will become my first point of reference for reviewing theological debates and standpoints.
