Author: Paul Enns


Revised and Expanded

The Moody Handbook of Theology leads the beginner into the appreciation and understanding of this essential field of study. It introduces the reader to the five dimensions that provide a comprehensive view of theology: biblical, systematic, historical, dogmatic and contemporary.

The apostle Paul wrote that all Scripture is "profitable for teaching" (2 Tim. 3:16), that Timothy should "pay close attention to...your teaching" (1 Tim. 4:16), and that leaders should "be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict" (Titus 1:9). When he wrote these statements, Paul was referring to theology. Beyond giving basic definitions and general descriptions, author Paul Enns summarized the substantial features of theology. In this way, he provides a concise doctrinal reference tool for the newcomer as well as the seasoned scholar seeking a refresher. There are fifty-five informative charts located at strategic points throughout the book.
