Systematic Theology, vol. 3: Sin and Salvation



Examining the doctrine of sin, Geisler begins with a discussion of human beings, covering the origin and nature of humanity. Next the elements of sin are studied, including sin’s origin, nature, effects, and defeat through God’s wondrous provision of salvation through the work of Jesus Christ. The second part continues with a thorough study of salvation, including an in-depth analysis of all applicable theories and doctrines, such as the extent of the Atonement, the nature of grace, and the assurance of heaven.

Praise for the Print Edition

Norm Geisler’s Systematic Theology is a long overdue, and thus welcomed, contribution to the evangelical world, for it persuasively shows the importance and necessity of philosophical analysis in the theologian’s craft. Dr. Geisler has a pastor’s heart, a philosopher’s mind, and a theologian’s temperament. He’s a cross between Thomas Aquinas and Billy Graham, and the result is this outstanding systematic theology.

—Francis J. Beckwith, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Philosophy, Culture, and Law, Trinity International University

Finally a systematic theology text that fully understands the essential philosophical and apologetic issues that make traditional theologies possible….In terms of philosophical support for theological claims about biblical truth, Geisler’s is the most comprehensive text yet. This is an apologetic theology, and it is greatly needed in the experientialist environment we find ourselves in today.

—L. Russ Bush, Professor, Philosophy of Religion; Academic Vice President, Dean of Faculty, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

In an age when specialization abounds, Norman Geisler exemplifies that rare and precious ability to bring together facility in the three areas necessary to do systematic theology: detailed philosophical training, facility in the categories of theology, and ability to exegete the biblical text. I know of no one who brings these skills together better than Geisler….When these skills are combined with Geisler’s excellence as a communicator, the result is powerful indeed, and I am delighted that his Systematic Theology is finally available to the church.

—J.P. Moreland, Professor, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University

Great theologians are best when they are outstanding philosophers also. Then, of course you often cannot fathom what they are saying. Norm Geisler has the unique ability as philosopher and theologian to deal with profound concepts in ways that the common man can easily grasp. Consequently, this systematic theology will not sit only on the desk of the scholar but also of the pastor and on the coffee table of many a layman.

—Dr. Paige Patterson, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

Having greatly benefited from studying theology under Norman Geisler some twenty years ago, I have for a long time yearned to see his vast theological research complied in a systematic theology. For those who value careful thinking, tight logic, fair evaluation, and keen theological insights, this systematic theology is must-reading.

—Dr. Ron Rhodes, President, Reasoning From the Scriptures Ministries
