About-

The value of systematic, disciplined reflection on biblical truth is the theme of this brief but convincing anthology. Writing from a variety of perspectives, the contributors present an excellent case for the necessity of systematic theology.

The editor has drawn from a vast reservoir of literature on the subject. Included are excerpts from the works of such eminent writers of the past as C. S. Lewis (letter 1 of Screwtape Letters), Dorothy Sayers ("Creed or Chaos?"), Jonathan Edwards ("The Importance of Christian Knowledge"), B. B. Warfield ("The Idea of Systematic Theology"), Emil Brunner ("The Necessity for Dogmatics"), and Francis Pieper ("Nature and Character of Theology").

Other chapters are by: R. C. Sproul ("Right Now Counts Forever"), John H. Gerstner ("Everyman Must Be a Theologian"), Kenneth F. W. Prior ("The Minister As Teacher"), R. L. Saucy ("Doing Theology for the Church"), and John Jefferson Davis ("Contextualization and the Nature of Theology").
