Theology belongs in the pulpit, the school, the workplace, the family, and everywhere. Society as a whole is weakened when theology is neglected. Systematic theology helps people approach the Bible with a clear and coherent picture of God’s revelation. Theology helps us discover the nature and person of God. Rushdoony’s 2-volume Systematic Theology is designed to assist in the application of the Word of God to every area of life and thought.

In the first volume, Rushdoony writes on creation and providence, the doctrine of God, the doctrine of Christ, and the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. This volume also includes a defense of systematic theology, including its definition, its limits, its application, and its necessity. He also explores the covenant, the theological nature of sin, and the atonement. The second volume contains an extensive exposition on the doctrine of the church, the doctrine of man, and eschatology. His Systematic Theology closes with a penetrating exploration of prayer.
