Wonderful, but heavily evangelical,
This review is from: Systematic theology: An Introduction to Biblical Doctrine (Hardcover)
I'm not sure why people consider this book offer differing opinions on difficult issues. Grudem is very evangelical, and probebly favours Calvin above any other form of protestant theology. As an Evangelical Christian studying at an evangelical college this book is invaluable, and I think it speaks much truth about what God has to say through the bible, but if you do not believe the bible to be the Word of God and do not grant it any divine authority then you will not find much in here.

Why would you be studying the Bible or calling youself Christian if you did not believe the Bible to be the word of God? with divine authority?
Fair comment, but I fail to see how it's at all relevent to a Christian book. Anybody who does not accept the Bible as God's word will be very unlikely to be a Christian at all - they may use it as a label but the Bible itself defines what a Christian is, not visa versa.
