Theologia: The Doctrine of God was written to serve as a more in-depth treatment of aspects of dogmatics pertaining to the doctrine of God, particularly on the subjects of natural and supernatural revelation, proof of the existence of God, the divine attributes, the Scripture and church doctrine of the Trinity, predestination, creation, providence, miracles, angels, and Satan. While the science of dogmatics is not required to prove the existence of God, Weidner felt that apologetics and dogmatics needed to be tied together to properly combat doubt and present a full defense of dogmatics. This text draws on 20 years of discussion in the classroom, designed to serve as an outline for a professor of theology to use in class for lectures. Weidner adapted the methods Luthardt used in his famous Kompendium der Dogmatik and used his headings and subdivisions to organize his thoughts.

Resource Experts
This volume, the latest in a series of treatises which are a remarkable testimony to the diligence of the author and the wide extent of his knowledge, will be in respect both of its handy form and its compact contents of much service for class-work as well as for private study . . . The value of the book as a student’s manual is increased by the addition of examination questions and by the introduction of frequent quotations from the great masters in dogmatic theology.
