Biblical proportion and balance

Article by   December 2014
The primary service which Systematic Theology performs for the preacher is to provide him with his message. But that's not all. It should also give his message biblical proportion and balance.

Secondly, a word of application. Thirdly, a word about infant baptism.' continue

Is Systematic Theology Any Use?

Article by   November 2014
Of any use to whom? Ideally, of course, to the whole world. But imagine yourself walking into a Systematic Theology classroom. Look at the students, and ponder their futures.

What do Systematic Theologians talk about?

Article by   October 2014
The short answer is that they talk about exactly the same things as Biblical Theologians.

Katherine Sonderegger and the Divine Oneness of God

Article by   October 2015

Dogmatics and doxology

Article by   October 2015
I have the delightful day job of teaching systematic or dogmatic theology. The study and teaching of systematic theology is delightful because systematic theology is preeminently concerned with the Bible, the living and loving address of the Most High God... continue

Justification and Ariel's Grotto
