Broad Scoped and Fair Apr 4, 2007
Whenever I'm studying some particular Biblical topic I like to look it up in Millard Erickson's Christian Theology because of all the Systematic Theologies his is the best at giving a broad and fair view of contributions to each topic. For every topic with theology Erickson presents many of the viewpoints and then finally presents his own. I certainly don't agree with his final view on every topic, but is such a thing even possible with a Systematic Theology? In any case, when I want a quick overview of some subject in theology I like to hit Erickson first before I look elsewhere because I know that he will most likely give me a broader view of the subject than anyone else.
