Review: Exploring Christian Theology: Creation, Fall, and Salvation by:Holsteen/Svigel
About the Book:
Introduction to Christian Doctrine from Dallas Seminary Professors
This engaging and accessible systematic theology clearly explains essential spiritual truths for those new to doctrinal study or in need of a refresher. The authors use quick-paced introductions, overviews, reviews of the key tenets of orthodox evangelical doctrines, and more for an easy grasp of the subjects.
Led by general editors Nathan D. Holsteen and Michael J. Svigel, the writers are Douglas Blount and J. Scott Horrell, with contributors
J. Lanier Burns and Glenn R. Kreider. All are Dallas Seminary professors and theologians.
"Exploring Christian Theology" is useful for a preview or review of doctrine, discipleship, or personal reference. It can be used by ministry training programs, Bible colleges, or seminaries as an introduction to prepare students for more in-depth theological study. Now complete in three volumes.
I have to say that the study of theology is very intimidating. My husband recently attended and graduated from seminary and he had to take several theology courses and theology isn't easy folks. It just isn't. But I have to say the authors of this series have provided some great material to get us on to a better understanding of Christian Theology.
First of all, if anyone out there believes that your salvation is all there is to your salvation, than they are sadly mistaken. God wants a relationship with each and every one of His children. It is as simple as that and theology can be the gateway to a better and more concise understanding of that relationship.
The authors provided you with a vast knowledge of learning within the 272 pages of Exploring Christian Theology, not their opinions or unbiased truths. It's simple, easy to grasp and full of knowledge.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Bethany House.
