The key to studying theology is knowing where to start. With that in mind, H. Wayne House has summarized the major introductory issues in systematic theology in an easy-to-follow, parallel column format. Charts on Systematic Theology includes direct quotes from significant theologians on introductory issues central to the study of systematic theology. This allows readers to read key theologians in their own words and quickly grasp the points of comparison and contrast between different theologians and theological systems. Citations and an extensive bibliography direct readers to additional reading. Charts are organized in 12 sections: What is Theology? Types of Theologies Possibility of Systematic Theology Divisions of Theology Nature of Doctrine Nature of Divine Revelation How Can God Be Known? The Knowledge of and Language About God Hermeneutics Faith and Reason Truth Relationships Between the Old and New Testaments
