Overview

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.

  • Unabridged systematic theology of unparalleled scope
  • Comprehensive analysis on a wide range of theological topics
  • Accessible language intended for widespread instruction
. . . the definitive statement of dispensational theology.

Walter Elwell, professor emeritus of Bible and theology, Wheaton College

Though scholarly in the true sense of the word, this work can also be read and understood by those not formally trained in theology.

Charles C. Ryrie, professor of systematic theology, Dallas Theological Seminary

    Chafer's Systematic Theology does a thorough and convincing job. He lays it out from Scripture in an authoritative way, that really builds your confidence. Not only does it give very detailed explanations and support, but it provides a comprehensive overview as well. While it's not always the easiest read, it leaves you with a confident comprehension of what the Bible teaches on the major themes. A family from our church bought me the eight volume hard-back edition back in the 80's. These books are well-worn. I bought the digital edition for another program for $40, and would really love to have it on Logos, when it becomes more affordable.

    I received an invitation to make a review of these books barely two weeks after I purchased them. I was aware of their existence from my Pastor who was one a student in the Dallas Theological Seminary when Dr Chafer was still President of the Seminary. To be honest there is no way I could give a review of the magnificence of this work. But my first impression (and maybe I have not been able to see it yet - would to have page numbers on the digital version. That said the use of digital with all the verses that can be accessed directly with Logos with the hover and click of a mouse is literally a Godsend. And to have access to it from my IPad, or web browser app gives me the ability to view it. I am giving it 5 stars because it goes to the heart of what God's Grace - His Grace System is. There is a lifetime of learning within these pages, and thus I can only give it 5 stars based upon the preface. The only request for improvement would be on the aspect of adding page numbers, because my Pastor from time to time quotes page numbers when he is making a particular reference. But regardless,Thank you Logos - for bringing such a work of art into my life, and allowing me to take it with me wherever me and my I Phone go!

    Mark has conjectured that this is crap. I think he has judged too quickly and harshly. Wonder how much syst theol he has read. With 2880 pages you can count only with fingers on one hand of other theologians who has achieved this comprehension of theology. In this Logos edition there are 30 reviews, and not many resources got that much attention. Chafer wrote on many things so comprehensively and so deeply. Any theologian can learn a lot, even in disagreement. I'm buying it today, as I have been waiting for years for a big discount like this black friday sale.

    Very good vols. He repeats himself a lot but that can be useful for learning. I find many writers do the same.

    I own the printed version of Chafer's Systematic Theology. Owned it for years and it is still my go to resource for deep study. I'm tempted to get the logos version just to make searching easier.

    By far the best pre-Trib, pre-millennial, inerrancy, fully "systematic" theology of the 20th Century! No one comes close. Not Ryrie, not Grudem, and certainly no "pocket" theologies.

    The one bad thing about this resource is the table of contents aren't built so you can use them as bookmarks into the volumes... You can't open the toc on the left side of the resource and move from section to section. You must go to the table of contents in the first volume and click on the links there. I love Chafer, just this version of his systheo could be a little better formatted.

    This is not a Pentecostal/Charismatic Resource. Logos should remove the search tagging that brings this one up on their website. This is the furthest thing from a Pentacostal/Chrismatic theology.

    I had the printed books for years, but now I own the Logos version. I refer to his writings frequently. This is a must for every student of the Scripture.
