    Good basic overview of the evangelical faith. Nothing earth shattering. Clear, concise presentation. Reformed (mostly anyway). Some of the issues are dealt with simplistically, but still, I see the value for having in a church library. Nothing great - but not too bad either. The danger of this book would be an immature believer thinking this is a final word or a definitive guide to the issues... not eclectic or ecumenical enough for that... a bit narrow in scope.

    A solid overview of Christian belief. It can sometimes be difficult to nail down what Christians believe because they mix what they WANT Christianity to be with what their different faiths actually teach. Another helpful book when understanding what is unique to the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

    I want to say "it was okay," but 2 stars seems a bit parsimonious. It's probably not the best systematic theology out there, as some sections are tainted by Milne's ecology and amillennialism, but it's decent enough. It certainly seems aimed toward the novice level, which is good for people who want an entry-level systematic theology. On the other hand, it does have some goofy arrangements, and it is lacking in a few things like anthropology. Its eschatology is noncommittal (though leaning to am I want to say "it was okay," but 2 stars seems a bit parsimonious.

It certainly seems aimed toward the novice level, which is good for people who want an entry-level systematic theology. On the other hand, it does have some goofy arrangements, and it is lacking in a few things like anthropology. Its eschatology is noncommittal (though leaning to amillennialism, as I said) and rather terse. It has nothing at all concerning Satanology and Angelology, which is rather disappointing (I'm not sure if Milne is trying not to scare people away or what). It has study guide questions, which may help facilitate classroom or study group work, but most of the questions are simple and obvious and don't facilitate a lot of higher-level thinking. I wouldn't have chosen this for my class, but the Powers that Be dictated its use. That's fine - it was satisfactory in its way.

    Excellent introduction to Christian doctrine. Brief enough to use in the church, and yet not overly simplistic.

    Clearly written systematic theology. Topics: Bible, God, Mankind & Sin, Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Church, the Last Things. Great to dip into for specific topics.

    One of the first books on Christian doctrine that I was introduced to. Milne teaches from a pastors heart and has the mind of a scholar. Also, the fact J.I. Packer endorsed the book. There can be no higher praise.

    Understanding the Christian faith A thorough investigation of biblical principles and positions. Without forcing any direction, the author provides a road map of Christian theology.

    Pretty standard introduction to systematic theology from a Baptist, amillennial, reformed perspective. Milne is favorable toward charismaticism and dismissive of dispensationalism.

    A complete overview of the doctrines of the faith, including the wide ranging views and perspectives held by different groups within Christendom. The perfect resource for every Christian.

    A brilliant read. Sound doctrine goes such a long way!

    I still fail to see the point of short books that attempt to cover many issues. Google renders this and others like it useless. I liked it less the second time
