A Systematic Theology for the 21st Century – Vol 1 Prolegomena – Vol 2 Bibliology

ByDr. Edward Rice

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This is Systematic Theology work that has the inerrant, infallible, verbally inspired word of God as its sole authority. Baptists, by definition, have the Holy Bible as their sole authority for all faith and practice. They should have a systematic theology book that does as well. This book contains volumes 1 and 2 of “A Systematic Theology for the 21st Century". A Christian, being one who has individually confessed and accepted the atoning blood of Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, for their saving, has a quickened, corrected, and personal relationship with the LORD God and Creator. They also have a charge from him that they prayerfully develop a theology. This thorough carefully assembled Systematic Theology can be a great help. Volume 1 Prolegomena Who needs to study theology systematically? God supposes that we all do. “Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.” Jeremiah 9:23-24. The thing that impresses God the most about any given individual is how much that individual is impressed with God. Volume 2 Bibliology will not be a Bible study, it will be a study of the Bible. What is it? Who wrote it? How did we get it? How accurate is it? How preserved is it? Such a thorough study is pertinent. The word Bibliology is derived from two Greek words, Biblios and logos. The former, of coarse, is a book, and/or a written document and the latter word needs to capture our full attention for a moment. “Ology” means a word, a discourse, a doctrine, a teaching, a matter under discussion, a thing spoken of or talked about, also the mental faculty of thinking, meditating, or reasoning about. Others have limited this suffix by equating it to the English “study of.” It is so much bigger than a study. Some have degraded “ology” so far that they call it science. But recall that science is, “The observation, identification, description, experimental investigation, and theoretical explanation of phenomena.” There really is no English equivalent that can capture the depth of ology in Bibliology. This work starts one on such a path of study. Please, God, bless this effort.
