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.
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.
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.
