Customer Reviews for Tyndale House Concise Theology

Tyndale House Concise Theology

Finally, there's a book that explains the essentials of theology in a style and length that busy readers can appreciate. J. I. Packer, noted theologian and author of Knowing God, offers 94 concise studies. Each focuses on a unique facet of our great God and his wonderful plan for us.

Each study is just a couple of pages long. That means you can find the answers you need quickly. But don't be fooled---there are plenty of Scripture references on every page. You can go as deep as you want at the pace you want.

In these chapters, you'll find what Packer calls the "permanent essentials of Christianity." The essentials are summed up so that you can find them quickly and easily. The essentials are expressed so that you can both understand and appreciate the greatness of God. So jump right in. Discover for yourself why Christian theology is not just a system of beliefs, but a way of life.

This book is very concise and right to the point. Each topic is covered in about 2-5 pages and is thorough and well presented. I recommend this book.

Arguably the best summarization of the historic christian beliefs. The essentials are expressed in a way you can both easily understand and truly appreciate how Christian theology is also a way of life, not just a system of beliefs.

This book does an awesome job of summing up theology by topics. Packer makes theology very simple in this book, 6th graders could understand it. You can go as deep as you want, because there is a lot scripture references that make this book biblically sound.

Packer really writes to both mind and heart, as opposed to much of the literary garbage that comes out under the label "Christian literature" that many gullible Christians eat up. Entries in this book are concise, "bite-size" explanations of doctrines, and the format allows the person to incorporate it with his or her devotional reading.This is one great book, and while I do not agree with everything he said, I'd still consider it a definite plus to any Christian book collection.

This is the finest one-volume "pocket book" edition of theology available anywhere. Excellent in scope and depth, yet both precise and brief.

Concise Theology was written as extended notes for the New Geneva Study Bible by Dr. Packer. This is an excellent resource for finding quick theological subjects addressed in a short one or two page format with tons of Scripture references to help point you back to the Bible. Whether checking a theological stance within a sermon or just wanting to know more about theology without being overwhelmed this is a great book.

This work is a must in the understanding of Christian doctrine. Dr. Packer clearly shows from Scripture the major teaching of the Bible in a very thorough, understandable, and short format to bring a clear understanding of the teachings of God in His word.
