Systematic Theology (8 vols.)

  • Author: Lewis Sperry Chafer
  • Publisher: Kregel
  • Volumes: 8
  • Pages: 2,880

In Systematic Theology, Lewis Sperry Chafer, the founding president of Dallas Theological seminary, seeks to make the teachings of Bible conferences accessible to other programs of formal theological education. It is the first dispensational, premillenial systematic theology ever published. Chafer defined systematic theology as “the collecting, systematically arranging, comparing, exhibiting, and defending of all facts concerning God and his works from any and every source.” He believed abridged systematic theologies resulted in evil, so his work is complete and unabridged. It covers crucial topics that many earlier theological texts neglected, including ecclesiology, angelology, and typology. Chafer also discusses bibliology, theology proper, anthropology, soteriology, and eschatology. Systematic Theology is one of the heavyweight works of the evangelical movement, and it remains highly relevant today.

Lewis Sperry Chafer (1871–1952) was an American Presbyterian clergyman and educator. He was educated at New Lyme Academy and Oberlin Conservatory and College in Ohio, and studied under C. I. Scofield. Ordained in 1900, he was a traveling evangelist for 15 years before becoming a Bible lecturer from 1914 to 1924. He also taught Bible at the Philadelphia School of the Bible from 1914 to 1923. In 1924, he founded the Evangelical Theological College, which is now Dallas Theological Seminary, and he was its president and professor of systematic theology until his death. His other works include Satan,The Kingdom in History and Prophecy, Salvation, He That Is Spiritual, Grace, Major Bible Themes, and The Ephesian Letter. He was also an editor of the theological journal Bibliotheca Sacra.

  • Pages: 256

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The apostolic fathers (late first century to mid second century) are early and important links to apostolic Christianity, although there is vigorous debate regarding their connection with the normative teachings of the primitive church. This new reference work, designed to be used alongside Michael Holmes’ third edition of the Apostolic Fathers, makes these vital writings more accessible by providing students with contextually sensitive glosses of words that occur fewer than 30 times in the New Testament These definitions are presented in the order in which they occur in the texts, along with the frequency of the word in the book, to facilitate a seamless reading process. Thus, students of New Testament Greek will be able to more comfortably expand their studies to read the works of Clement of Rome, Ignatius of Antioch, the Shepherd of Hermas, Polycarp of Smyrna, Papias, and others. This work will spur many students of the New Testament to explore the writings of the apostolic fathers and wrestle with their content, theology, praxis, use of the New Testament, and devotion to the risen Lord.

Daniel B. Wallace (PhD, Dallas Theological Seminary) is professor of New Testament studies at Dallas Theological Seminary, director of the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts, and senior New Testament editor of the The NET Bible. He has written Greek Grammar beyond the Basics.

  • Publisher: Kregel

  • Pages: 233

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

When some Christians think of spiritual warfare, they may be consumed with worry about what Satan will do to them next. Others have been taught that they have authority over the demonic host. Still others ignore the spiritual battle being fought right in their midst.

Using the Bible as their basis of authority, the authors answer such questions as:

  • What is demon possession?
  • Can a Christian be demon possessed?
  • Do demons make you sin?
  • Can pagan objects haunt you?
  • How did Jesus handle spiritual warfare?
  • What is Satan’s strategy?
  • Is exorcism biblical?

The Battle strategy taught here is simple: You can resist the Devil and rest in the knowledge that God is in control over all things. He will have the ultimate victory over sin and death.

Thomas Ice (ThM Dallas Theological Seminary (Ph.D. Tyndale Seminary) is a former pastor, the executive director of the Pre-Trib Research Center located at Liberty University where he also teaches the bible and theology.
