Among the great works to come out of the Reformation, those of the divines who flourished in the Reformed churches of Switzerland occupy a distinguished place, and supply a fund of valuable information on every branch of Christian theology. In Christian Theology, Benedict Pictet, a seventeenth century pastor and professor of theology, provides a complete Reformed systematic theology, written in plain, unadorned language. In this concise sum of Christian doctrine, Pictet covers the existence of God, the Trinity, creation, the Fall, salvation, redemption, justification and sanctification, the church, the sacraments, and more.
In the Logos Bible Software edition, all Scripture passages in Christian Theology are tagged to appear on mouseover. For scholarly work or personal Bible study, this makes this resource more powerful and easier to access than ever before. Perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “justification” or “Romans 8:30.”
Benedict Pictet (1655–1724) was born and educated in Geneva, Switzerland. In 1686 he was appointed professor of theology at the University of Geneva. Pictet also distinguished himself as a Christian poet, and his hymns are still used today.
