Many people react negatively to the word theology, believing that it involves dry, fruitless arguments about minute points of doctrine. Yet as Dr. R.C. Sproul argues, everyone is a theologian. Any time we think about a teaching of the Bible and strive to understand it, we are engaging in theology. Therefore, it is important that we put the Bible's varied teachings together in a systematic fashion, using proper, time-tested methods of interpretation so as to arrive at a theology that is founded on truth.
That is precisely what Dr. Sproul does in Everyone's a Theologian: An Introduction to Systematic Theology. This book is anything but a dry discussion of minute points of doctrine. Dr. Sproul, demonstrating his trademark ability to make complex subjects easy to understand, surveys the basic truths of the Christian faith, reminding us once more of what God is like and of what He has done for His people in this world and the next.

This book will teach you the essentials of the Christian faith. I recommend this book not only for the seasoned Christian but also to a new Christian
Have found audiobooks to be a great way to pass time during long car road trips for work, and Audible makes it easy.
I would, although I didn't read the print version.
There's just a lot to digest, but I think it helps explain some rather complicated concepts in an understandable way. I will read other Sproul books.
Anything Sproul tends to rate high in my opinions. I love the way he clarifies the Word! Sproul tends to open the Gospel, and clarify the concepts in such a way as to make the listener aware of concepts that he would have otherwise missed.
Anything Sproul, because you can count on good solid theology, and an extremely in depth knowledge of scripture, as well as church history.

to my reading of Karl Barth's Evangelical Theology, in which he puts forth the very same proposition as this book: everyone must face the big questions and is, by default, a theologian of one degree or another. Sproul obviously takes the theist stance here and makes good defense of it. Such books are very important now, given the easy, breezy (and overly simplistic and just plain biased) attacks on theism that come through the channels of the "new atheism" (think Dawkins, Dennett, Harris and Hitchens). It is time for theists to start thinking again, open a book, and learn why the new wave atheists are wrong in their facile and one-sided approach to the deeper questions.
If you want sound orthodox historic theology that is totally biblical this is the book for you. this book stays away from all of the modern-day contemporary false notions,opinions, etc. Dr. Sproul sticks to scripture and reverence the Word of God.
