The heart of every program at Crichton College is its major Bible and Theology. Since this major presents difficulties to students who have not had the proper background training, a proper textbook and a professor who understands the needs of beginning students are of great value. Mr. Roy Gingrich in the work on Systematic Theology has provided the needed textbook and he does understand the needs of beginning students, for he has been teaching and guiding both beginning students and more advanced students at Crichton College for around twenty-seven years.
These two volumes on Systematic Theology, coming from the Bible and from the teaching notes of Mr. Gingrich, will be of great value to Pastors, Sunday-school teachers, Bible-college students, and to all other Christians who hunger for a deeper knowledge and understanding of the Bible. This work was designed to prepare its readers for a greater in-depth study of theology but it is rather complete in itself.
