Originally published in 1949 and revised in 1979, Henry C. Thiessen's comprehensive introduction to systematic theology has well served countless students and pastors for more than half a century. It continues to instruct serious students of the Bible and theology.
Following two introductory chapters delineating the nature, necessity, possibility, and divisions of theology, Henry Clarence Thiessen systematically address a wide range of subjects in eight major sections—Theism, Bibliology, Theology, Anthropology, Soteriology, Ecclesiology, Angelology, and Eschatology. Also included are two specialized indexes for further study—an Index of Subjects and an Index of Scriptural References that includes over 4,000 entries.
Systematic Theology can be dry. This book isn't.
We use Thiessen in our church for training the ministerial staff and it is highly regarded by all of our church leaders. I highly recommend it.
Henry C. Thiessen taught at Dallas Theological Seminary and served as Chairman of the Faculty of the Graduate School at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois.
