Introduction to Systematic Theology

Berkhof, Louis

Product Description

Publisher Description:

In recent years evangelicals have evidenced a revived interest in systematic theology, and particularly in such introductory questions as the authority and inspiration of the Bible. Introduction to Systematic Theology consists of the mature reflections of a leading twentieth-century Reformed theologian on these very questions.

Part 1 treats the nature of dogma, the idea of dogmatic theology, the task of dogmatics, its method, its organization, and its history; part 2, the essence, seat, and origin of religion, the external principle of religious knowledge (revelation), and the internal principle (faith).

In his discussion of special revelation, the author discusses the scriptural proofs for the inspiration of Scripture, the nature and extent of that inspiration, efforts to discredit the doctrine of inspiration, and objections to that doctrine.
