Rolland McCune‘s A Systematic Theology of Biblical Christianity (3 vols.) is a must-read for those desiring to go beyond the basics of biblical doctrine. His dedication to study and the desire to communicate biblical truth are evident in his writing. Because it is important to consult an assortment of systematic theologies to discover how others come to their conclusion of God’s revealed truth, this multi-volume systematic theology is worth adding to one’s library.
In his Systematic Theology, McCune brings a strong emphasis on the scriptural basis for each doctrine and teaching. These books are very engaging and understandable. Even complex doctrines are written in a way that is clear and concise for any reader. Important to both students and current pastors, this informative collection will bring a fresh perspective on systematic theologies that have been debated for years. With the Logos Bible Software edition, searching by topic or Scripture references will further help your understanding—comparing, for example, the systematic theologies of other authors and theologians.
This is the systematic theology set for which many of us—especially those of us who had the privilege of studying under Dr. Rolland McCune—have been waiting. Rolland McCune is one of the clearest thinkers in the theological world today, and in this set he systematically combines the interpretations of Scripture that many of us have wished to find in a single theology set. Highlights include a presuppositional apologetic, a single source (Scripture) as the only rule for theology, cessationism [sic] of the miraculous gifts, pretribulational premillennialism in eschatology, a dispensational structure of God’s progressive revelation, recent creationism, and a Calvinist soteriology. In addition, McCune has gained a comprehensive knowledge of evangelical theological works in his lifetime, and hundreds of footnotes saturate the pages of this work. It is highly recommended.
