    This was required reading in my theology class, so I have to judge it on a somewhat different standard than the books I actually choose to read. On that scale, it's decent; as a systematic theology it's a little scattered, but Towns has a good eye for example and a pleasant enough style. I doubt I'll be dipping into this one on a regular basis, but it could have been much worse.

    First off I had to read this for my theology 202 class this past 2 months. I understand the theological back ground of Liberty so I kinda guessed what I was getting into. At the same time though as a person who attends a SBC church but affirms reformed theology this book basically slammed my beliefs and told me I was stupid for thinking any differently than Elmer towns.

    Reading a number of excerpts which will end up being the majority of the book for Theology class. Very good source. Will definitely keep the excerpts for future reference. Fortunate enough to have Dr. Towns explain it in video as well. Love his teaching.

    I read this for Theology class. I pretty much like Dr Elmer. His lectures are hilarious (and informative) and never really match his writing style. Its pretty matter of fact, besides being biblical. I always learned a lot. Its definitely a good source.

    Just finished my second Theology class that completes the end of this book. It is an excellent resource, and I highly recommend it for every Christian in order to better understand what we believe and why we believe it.

    This book I was initally excited for. I had lost my copy of Thiessen's Lectures in systematic Theology, so this was going to be the replacement. As far as the content, it seems relatively good so far. The theology is consistent with modern evangelical conservativism. Yet, many of his scriptural proofs are ride with errors. He references habakkuk 1:1 as a point of emotion, yet vs 2 is where the emotion comes in. He references 1 john 1:11, yet there are only 10 verses in 1 john 1.

I believe what was meant was 1 john 1:1 and 2. I have just started in bibliology, but I may just put this one down and continue with grudem and my new copy of thiessen as I've yet to see the same errors in publication. Either towns' editor is failing him, or he is mis-rep=resenting his position. Not sure.

    Write a review...Elmer Towns is an exciting and engaging individual, and his work of theology resonates with the enthusiasm.

However, the real question in reviewing a text on theology is whether or not it achieves its purpose. Dr. Towns does an excellent job of presenting what is essentially a mid-line, independent, fundamentalist Baptist systematic theology. Is it however the truth? While I greatly respect Dr. Towns' scholarship and insight, the text cannot be presented as a good work of theology o systematic theology as such. Because it is Baptist in its thrust it does not agree with nor support the first thousand years of church history in its soteriology--doctrine of salvation, not does it genuinely agree with ancient Christian faith. Nevertheless, as a presentation of Baptist theology, which many in the emerging and other church movements are weak in, it is a good text. As a theology in agreement with ancient and apostolic Christianity it cannot and does not meet the bill, but then again nothing that is Baptist ever could.

    From the introduction: "The author is a Calvinist; however, I do not agree with the five major points of Calvinism." Well alrighty then. From the introduction: "The author is a Calvinist; however, I do not agree with the five major points of Calvinism." Well alrighty then.
