Présentation de l'éditeur

Many people react negatively to the word theology, believing that it involves dry, fruitless arguments about minute points of doctrine. Yet as Dr. R.C. Sproul argues, everyone is a theologian. Any time we think about a teaching of the Bible and strive to understand it, we are engaging in theology. Therefore, it is important that we put the Bible’s varied teachings together in a systematic fashion, using proper, time-tested methods of interpretation so as to arrive at a theology that is founded on truth.

That is precisely what Dr. Sproul does in Everyone’s a Theologian: An Introduction to Systematic Theology. This book is anything but a dry discussion of minute points of doctrine. Dr. Sproul, demonstrating his trademark ability to make complex subjects easy to understand, surveys the basic truths of the Christian faith, reminding us once more of what God is like and of what He has done for His people in this world and the next.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Everyone's A Theologian by Everyone's Theologian 13 mars 2014
Par David Murray - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
A terrible confession: I’ve never read a Systematic Theology book cover to cover.

It gets worse. I’ve never read more than three consecutive chapters in a Systematic Theology tome.

Sure, I’ve read many chapters in many Systematic Theologies when researching for sermons or lectures, but I’ve never successfully read any volume from start to finish. Believe me, I’ve tried. I’ve tried and tried again. But I just can’t do it.

Why?

Are you ready for this?

It’s a really dark secret.

You really want to know?

OK, here goes. They’re usually way too long, way too complex, way too technical, and way too….boring.

There. I said it. Yes, theology can be boring. I know, I know, no one is meant to admit this. But if you asked most unread systematic theologies on most shelves (and, yes, most of them are unread), they would reluctantly agree: “It’s not fair, I’m the biggest cleverest book in the library, and that guy never takes me on a date. Sure he picks me up for a functional chat ever few weeks, but he doesn’t love me, he doesn’t spend time with me, he doesn’t caress me the way he touches these skimpy little paperbacks. If only my creator had made me a bit thinner, a bit more enjoyable, a bit more attractive, a bit more accessible. If only he’d given me a personality; instead, he made me a big, fat, ugly robot.”

Enter R.C. Sproul with Everyone’s a Theologian: An Introduction to Systematic Theology, a book you’re going to want to date…again and again…maybe even marry!

I’m reading chapter after chapter, and I can’t stop. I’m not finished yet, and I’m not sure I want to either. It’s classic Sproul and will, I believe, become another Sproul classic. It covers all the bases of Systematic Theology in a brief, simple, and enjoyable way. Yes, enjoyable!

Although the chapters are short (five pages on average), I’ve learned something in every one of them. I’ve also enjoyed re-learning what I had learned before, though this time with intoxicating pleasure rather than with tedious drudgery. Sproul has that rare knack of challenging the reader enough to stimulate the intellect without overwhelming it and shutting it down.

As we watch a good and godly man enter his latter days, we have the privilege of hearing his much-loved “voice” once again in the pages of this book. I almost felt his grandfatherly arm around my shoulder as he shepherded me into a deeper knowledge and love of the truth. Everyone’s theologian is still laboring to make everyone a (better) theologian.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Inviting Survey of Systematic Theology 11 mars 2014
Par Elizabeth Arundel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I've been a devoted reader of Dr. Sproul's books since my conversion to orthodox Christianity a few years back and I can say that to someone like myself who is still learning about her faith, its marvels amidst its simplicity, this book provides a valuable going over of the major teachings of Scripture.

In his inimitable, plain-spoken style, Dr. Sproul gives us the bedrock of systematic theology, that is, the topics of "theology proper (the study of God), anthropology (the study of man), Christology (the study of Christ), pneumatology (the study of the Holy Spirit), soteriology (the study of salvation), ecclesiology (the study of the church), and eschatology (the study of the end times)." Each short chapter delivers the outlines of these seven essential pillars of theology in the language of a layperson. In other words, you don't have to have a Ph.D. to understand theology, praise God! Maybe that's why He chose fishermen to be among His apostles!

In our postmodern world we don't like the word "system": it implies a rigidity and objectivity that we shun because it's not touchy-feely and malleable enough to suit everyone's different standards and tastes. But as every reader of the Bible knows, God's truth is absolute and as such deserves to be studied as it is revealed through His word, in a systematic manner. Systematic theology is a means of defining the truth presented in His word.

To regular listeners of his "Renewing Your Mind," Dr. Sproul's recognizable voice in the cadences of this text makes the reading of this book a comfortable walk with a valued teacher. I was not disappointed to see familiar anecdotes and examples used to introduce or enlarge upon a topic. They preserve the hallmarks of a gifted preacher and theologian.

*****As as an addendum, it is worth noting that this book is a faithful rendering of the author's DVD teaching series, "Foundations: An Overview of Systematic Theology." The book's sixty chapters closely follow the sixty 23-minute lectures given by Dr. Sproul in the series which is distributed by Ligonier Ministries of which he is the founder.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A GREAT PRIMER ON ALL THE MAJOR DOCTRINES OF THE BIBLE 13 mars 2014
Par David P. Craig - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book is almost a word for word account of R.C. Sproul's DVD teaching series entitled "Foundations: An Overview of Systematic Theology." Having watched this video series in the past I immediately recognized the content. I'm glad this series has now been made available in book form.

R.C. is a master teacher and in this book he covers the subject of Theology in its broadest sense. Theology not only refers to the study of God, but to everything that God has revealed to us in the Bible. In sixty short, but jam-packed chapters R.C. unveils with depth and clarity a summary of what the Bible has to say about its most important themes: Theology Proper - The study of God; Anthropology and Creation - The study of man; Christology - The study of Jesus; Pneumatology - The study of the Holy Spirit; Soteriology- The study of salvation; Ecclesiology - The study of the Church; and lastly (no pun intended) - Eschatology - The study of last things.

This book is an excellent introduction to all of these subjects and the sub topics they address. As R.C. Sproul says, "Everyone, is a theologian, but either a good or bad one." You will come away from reading this book having learned a ton of important truths that will help you become a better theologian. With profound depth, clarity, historical, and practical wisdom Sproul will delight and intrigue you in helping you grow in your journey and intimacy with God - using your head, heart, and hands for His glory and your good.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A new, wonderfully readable, introduction to Christian doctrine by an experienced theologian 22 mars 2014
Par David J. Bissett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
[Note - I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in return for writing a review; this did not influence my opinion]

This introduction to Christian doctrine is by an experienced theologian, and gifted teacher, which will benefit a variety of readers. In 60 concise chapters (averaging about five pages each), Dr. R. C. Sproul, founder of Ligonier Ministries, surveys all the primary topics of systematic theology in a most engaging manner.

The eight divisions of the book cover these topics in an orderly manner, using traditional terminology: Introduction (which includes revelation, inerrancy, canonicity and authority), Theology Proper, Anthropology and Creation, Christology, Pneumatology, Soteriology, Ecclesiology, and Eschatology. In the first chapter, Sproul shares four assumptions about systematic theology: the first, that God has revealed Himself in nature and in the Word; second, God reveals Himself "according to His own character and nature ... in an intelligent way that is meant to be understood"; third, there is a unity and coherence to the Word of God; and fourth, there is a consistency to His revelation since "He is the same yesterday, today, and forever."

Those familiar with the teaching style of R. C. Sproul from his many previous books or video presentations, will readily hear his voice on every page -- especially in the various personal anecdotes and ubiquitous Latin terms he employs (and defines) along the way. References to the Westminster standards are included, and Reformed theologians (Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Edwards) are amply quoted. Other theologians and historical viewpoints are mentioned along the way -- and heresies are clearly named.

One weakness of this volume might be seen in one-too-many uses of formal logic to illustrate a point (he twice refers to reducio ad absurdum arguments; helpful on page 300, unhelpful on page 256).

While comparable in size and scope to Bruce Milne's Know the Truth: A Handbook of Christian Belief (IVP, 3rd Ed., 2009), Sproul's Everyone's A Theologian feels less like a textbook, and more like an easy-to-read survey. Indeed, several chapters can be read in one sitting, and the whole book straight through in a few day's time. There are very few footnotes used, and the majority of those are pointers to Sproul's other books. Given the brevity of these chapters, the book would be more valuable if it included a list of recommended reading by topics or a bibliography at the end. Scripture and subject indices are included.

The strength of this volume is found in its accessibility to modern readers, its consistent Reformed views and its passion for making truth known. For instance, at the end of chapter 19 on the nature of sin (one of the best chapters), Sproul writes, "We must never conclude that sin is an illusion. Sin is real. Sin is mysterious, but there is a reality to the evil in which we participate. It does not simply intrude upon us from outside. It is something with which we are deeply, intimately, and personally involved in our hearts and souls" (107). And this sample, from the chapter on providence, shows the pastoral passion of Sproul which is found throughout: "Knowledge of divine providence brings comfort in our suffering. God is in control not only of the universe and its operations but also of history. ...Our lives are in His hands, our vocations are in His hands, as are our prosperity or our poverty -- He governs all these things in His wisdom and goodness" (81).

This is a helpful, biblically faithful book which will help its readers become better, biblical theologians.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Excellent Introduction to Systematic Theology 17 avril 2014
Par C. Dustin Boyd - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Everyone's a Theologian is R. C. Sproul's popular-level introduction to the discipline of systematic theology. In it, he covers all the major topics of systematics (Prolegomena, Theology Proper, Anthropology, Christology, Pneumatology, Soteriology, Ecclesiology, Eschatology), and he does so in a way that is consistently clear and concise. The book also includes two indices (subject and Scripture) as well as an appendix containing the ecumenical creeds (Apostles', Nicene, and Chalcedon).

Coming in at less than 350 pages, the book's brevity is one of it's best features. Despite its length, however, Everyone's a Theologian manages to cover each topic adequately. Very few authors could deliver as much solid content in as few pages, but Sproul, as usual, pulls it off admirably. His ability to simplify complex, theological concepts and communicate them in a way that is clear and compelling is matched by very few. Sproul is like a more theologically orthodox version of C. S. Lewis in this regard. The illustrations are always helpful, and the chapters are quite brief, making this book ideal for the layman looking for an entry into the (sometimes intimidating) field of systematic theology.

Systematic theology, when done well, must take a lot of things into consideration. It must be biblically based, philosophically sound, and historically informed. Very few texts strike the right balance. If Everyone's a Theologian has a weakness, it is that it doesn't contain much substantive interaction with Scripture. Sproul is responsible in his use of prooftexts and prefers relevance over quantity when citing Scripture (both improvements over many other systematics texts), however, there isn't much in the way of biblical exegesis. A few more footnotes would have been appreciated as well (though, I'm probably in the minority with this complaint).

Overall, one could hardly ask for a better short introduction to systematic theology. Highly recommended.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.
