Grudem's "Systematic Theology" is both a solid reference tool and a beautiful devotional help. I am using the book as a resource as I write my own personal doctrine statement, and also hope to go through it during my daily Quiet Times as an aid to worship our God. I love the fact that Grudem not only gives us lots of academic information, but also personal application questions, memory verses and hymns to accompany each chapter.
The contents of the CDROM are obviously good seeing where they come from, but, having a vista macine, this program didn't work straight out of the box. It came with the pradis 5 software version which wouldn't work on my machine in anything else but read only mode, which made a mockery of the hot links and bible quotations....the main reason I spent money on an electronic version in addition to my paper one, but when I managed to get my pradis 6 software to recognise the book and the esv bible too, all has been resolved and works really well.
I asked for this as a Christmas gift one year because I had heard that it was one of the only (if not, THE only) book on systematic theology that is written by someone who is not a paedobaptist. On that note alone, it was a refreshing change.
Overall, I found it to be readable, concise, well-thought out, logical and devotional.
The grand subject is God, HImself, and Grudem is anxious to extol His praises.
Each chapter ends with questions for personal reflection and application, special terms, a Scripture memory pasage, and a related hymn, so that you can easily use each chapter as an extended devotional.
The only weakness I found with it was his view that special revelation was still possible. This opens up a can of worms. The other was his wavering on Creation. He starts out the chapter strong enough, but then seems to cave to the theistic evolutionists. If you take the stand that theistic evolution is a possibility, then you have death before sin, and the Bible is clear that before Adam sinned, there was no death (therefore no fossils), but when man sinned, death entered the world.
Otherwise, I really enjoyed it, and would recommend it over Louis Berkhof or Charles Hodge or any other Systematic Theology text available.
