"Clearly written and well-outlined, this book would serve as an excellent college textbook as well as being accessible to educated laypersons."--Warren McWilliams, Religious Studies Review

"This is an outstanding introduction to theology that should become a standard undergraduate textbook. It's accessible to all general readers, and I strongly recommend it to all bookstores."--John Kohlenberger III, Bookstore Journal

"Unhesitatingly recommended for use in Christian colleges."--Robert A. Pyne and Gary L. Nebeker, Bibliotheca Sacra

"This prominent publication is most worthy of serious study."--The Baptist Standard

"Erickson's goal was to write a briefer version of his popular Christian Theology--with a view to providing a primer of and transition to more extended discussions of theology. As such, Erickson admirably achieved his purposes."--B. Dale Ellenburg, Mid-America Theological Journal
