5.0 out of 5 stars Christian teaching simply explained and practically applied., 15 Aug 2006
This book by Wayne Grudem is a condensed version of his work on Bible Doctrine, which itself is a condensed form of his excellent Systematic Theology. In this briefer work we get twenty chapters of very clear and concise descriptions of key doctrines of the christian faith. Grudem deals well with each subject, including some thorough chapters on heaven, hell and the final judgement. It must be added that this is not just a book of 'dry theology,' as there is plenty of practical application throughout the book, and it is good devotional reading.

It is worth noting, that concerning the Second Coming of Christ, Grudem favours a classic pre-millenial position, although he very fairly explains other views on this subject. This short book does not contain Grudem's views on spiritual gifts. For, this you would need to consult some of his aforementioned more extensive writings.

The book ends with sections containing historical confessions such as the Apostle's Creed, and also some recommended further reading. I recommend this book to christians both old and new. It should be of great spiritual benefit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book, 20 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book after my friend recommended it to me to use with the new Christians or people interested in the Christianity. I studied it with my friend, who had no prior knowledge of Christianity. All topics are clearly explained and questions at the end of the chapters are helpful as well. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Theology for everyone, 16 May 2012
By 
M. Wilson - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
Well nearly anyway, this book covers some of the basic beliefs of the Christian faith to give a believer a good theological grounding. It is not an academic book so anyone who has read Systematic Theology by Grudem, may find this quite simplistic. Certainly some of the more challenging topics aren't covered such as providence but that means this book can be read by a reasonably new believer without it being too much.

The book does also cover application again making it more useful to the Christian than many dry theological texts which only cover the theories.

This book really does create a nice stepping stone from which to learn more about Christian theology as you will understand many of the basics after reading it from where you can get into more complex or specific texts.

A worthwhile read for every believer.
