Synopsis


The Moody Handbook of Theology
leads the beginner into
the appreciation and understanding of this essential field of study. It introduces
the reader to the five dimensions that provide a comprehensive view of theology:
biblical, systematic, historical, dogmatic and contemporary.

The apostle
Paul wrote that all Scripture is 'profitable for teaching' (2 Tim. 3:16), that Timothy
should 'pay close attention to...your teaching' (1 Tim. 4:16), and that leaders
should 'be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict'
(Titus 1:9). When he wrote these statements, Paul was referring to theology.

Beyond
giving basic definitions and general descriptions, author Paul Enns summarized the
substantial features of theology. In this way, he provides a concise doctrinal reference
tool for the newcomer as well as the seasoned scholar seeking a refresher. There
are fifty-five informative charts located at strategic points throughout the book.
