At its most basic level, the word theology is “God talk,” the Greek theos originally meaning “God” and logos meaning “word, statement, speech, discourse.” God is then the ultimate subject and source of theology. Included in theology is the study of the nature of God himself, Christ, and the Holy Spirit. But theology also includes the scope of the Bible itself: the study of the Word of God subject by subject, like the doctrine of sin, the doctrine of grace, demons, angels, and many others.

In this volume, Dr. Cottrell has written a systematic theology, carefully and thoroughly setting forth an examination of the Bible’s teaching concerning every major subject.

The Faith Once for All is a powerful and dynamic view on Bible doctrine. Doctrine is nothing less than food for the soul, nourishing and strengthening us within. This book is a valuable asset that will serve as the cornerstone of your biblical reference library.

Dr. Cottrell writes factually and to the point. Agree with him or not, he will tell what he believes and why! He will also explain opposing views and why he believes them to be in error…If you want to develop a deeper understanding of Biblical doctrine then you must read this book.

    Cottrell is one of the best non-Reformed theologians writing theology. Albeit his polemical adherence to Disciples of Christ theological distinctness, it would be a mistake to dismiss him.
