Systematic theology books are usually highbrow intellectual Works was your aimed at imparting knowledge on a scholarly level. Despite this Greg R Allison, has written a work which not only as a well-written Orthodox presentation of systematic theology but is written in such a way that it can be used by both the pastor and the laity.
In every Systematic Theology work there are certain aspects which need to be covered, this can be extremely difficult in a 1 volume work, yet Allison does a phenomenal job covering all major topics in systematic theology. Unfortunately due to its small length, just shy a 425 pages, each topic is not dealt with in a in-depth manner. Fortunately though at the end of each Allison provides a teaching outline of how a pastor or teacher makes all about imparting this knowledge in a helpful manner.
While I do not agree with Allison on every aspect of the systematic theology One Thing Remains appearance, his desire to impart a orthodox view of scripture, with a password phone that helps apply such insight to the daily life of a Christian who desires to walk in the way of the Lord. I therefore recommend this to those were looking for a simple and relatively short work on understanding and teaching Systematic Theology. Therefore Greg R. Allison’s, 50 core truths of the Christian faith, is it well worth picking up.
