Publisher's Summary

The Christian church has a long tradition of systematic theology - that is, studying theology and doctrine organized around fairly standard categories such as the word of God, redemption, and Jesus Christ. This introduction to systematic theology has several distinctive features:

  • A strong emphasis on the scriptural basis for each doctrine and teaching
  • Clear writing, with technical terms kept to a minimum
  • A contemporary approach, treating subjects of special interest to the church today
  • A friendly tone, appealing to the emotions and the spirit as well as the intellect
  • Frequent application to life
  • Resources for worship with each chapter
  • Bibliographies with each chapter that cross-reference subjects to a wide range of other systematic theologies

Not a reading of the book

This was not the actual audio version of the book. However, it was a collection of talks, or, as he refers to them himself, "sessions that summarize the book. If you are looking for the full version of the book, I recommend getting the physical copy until a full, unabridged version of the audio is available. Disappointed that Audible did not clarify.

Most but not all

Would you listen to Systematic Theology again? Why?

this audio version contains most of the text but not all. It contains the same idea, but not text to text reading. Maybe this is why it is a lot easier to understand. It is definitely audience freindly to listen to the audio than reading the book. However, if you are studying for the test, you should read the book, if you do not want to miss any detail. But if you are cramming, this really helps.

very short overview

this is a pretty good overview of grudem's systematic theology, but I wish it was a lot longer - preferably, I would like an unabridged recording of the book.

however, this is a good substitute for now

Excellent introduction to Theology

For the new Christian this would be very insightful. If however, the listener has any theological experience, the beginning may be a bit challenging in its topical presentation. But after the first few chapters, it begins to pick up steam and flow. The presentation is lecture-style and can be dry in parts. But overall, the knowledge imparted is not going to be gleaned in one listening...but believe me, the subsequent readings will unify the overall mission of the author.
