Praise for the Print Edition

Garrett has provided a massive and scholarly systematic theology from a thoroughly conservative and comprehensive viewpoint. The work is well documented in both biblical and historical scholarship and will prove to be a classic.

—William Hendrickson, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

One of the most comprehensive, concise books of its type available; it should receive wide use in the classroom and in the study.

Robert H. Culpepper, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

One of the characteristics of Garrett’s system that needs especially to be noted is its balanced, judicious, and nearly invariably objective presentation of materials. While holding true to the teachings of his own Baptist faith, Garrett so carefully and judiciously presents alternatives . . . that teachers and students from other confessional and denominational positions will find his work instructive.


If one is searching for an extensive exposition of the biblical foundations and historical developments of the various loci of systematic theology, there is no more complete presentation in a relatively short work than this . . . Pastors will especially find this feature to be a real help in teaching theology . . . [It is] an indispensable contribution to the task of systematic theology.

Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society

Many students and pastors will find all they need here, and will in addition be helped to relate their knowledge to recent developments in the theological world.

The Churchman: A Journal of Anglican Theology

No book that I know is more loaded with biblical and theological facts than this one. The prodigious research that must have gone into the preparation of this volume is truly mind-boggling.

    Dr. Garrett's Systematic Theology is a great resource but it is helpful to understand what he was doing in this work. Dr. Garrett was primarily a historical theologian. The strength of this Systematic is how it allows the reader to get a helpful overview of the major Christian doctrines as they are present in the Old Testament, the New Testament, the writings of the Fathers (patristics), in the medieval church, in the Reformation era, and in the modern era. In other words, one who is preaching or teaching or studying a particular doctrine can turn to this work to get a good sense of how the church has approached it over the years. At times it can be a bit frustrating that we do not hear more of Dr. Garrett's personal views, but that does not mean he is absent from the work. It is a unique Systematic and, again, if understood rightly, it is a very, very helpful work. The scope of issues and the balanced way that Dr. Garrett presents the various approaches to and understandings of these issues is very impressive. Highly recommended. This is a great price on a great work.
