This stand-alone, in-depth reference work is the culmination of the author??'s thirty-plus years of study, teaching, and research. The extensive Part One, Introduction???or preconditions???sets this work apart from other systematic theologies available today. Here Geisler examines the realities of the Christian faith including the existence of God, inescapability of truth, the nature of revelation, and guidelines for interpretation. Part Two, Bible, presents the origin of the Scripture, its inspiration, inerrancy, and much more.
