Overview

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.

Resource Experts
  • In-depth introduction to theology
  • Ideal for pastors, students, and laity
  • Includes detailed table of contents and cross-references
Systematic Theology can be dry. This book isn't.

—Online Reviewer

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.

    The 4 stars are for the 1st edition (1940s, the only one I have used). Somebody says college level, not seminary level. My Bible College had higher quality Bible & theology teaching than did my seminary! The best Bible teachers I sat under were in Bible College. I kind of regret going to seminary. I now wish I had just enrolled in university after Bible college to study Greek, Hebrew, & Aramaic. Theissen was the school's Systematic Theology, , though probably our best professors disagreed with Theissen on election (while agreeing with him on eschatology). The biggest drawback to Theissen was that he did not print out verses, but just gave the references in general; so you needed a supplementary book with the verses written out. Does this Logos edition bring up verses when you hover over them? Then it would be worth buying for me. Also, I am curious as to how the election doctrine may have been changed in the new edition. I believe that Theissen was only a 2 point Calvinist, interpreting election as by foreknowledge of who would believe.

    We used this volume in our Theology class in Bible College. I can't believe that it's available! College level; not seminary level.
