Making Sense of Who God Is
Wayne Grudem's Systematic Theology is required reading in many courses on biblical theology—and with good reason. The textbook’s emphasis on the scriptural basis for each doctrine, along with its clear writing, and contemporary approach make it an indispensable resource for many Christians.
This series presents, as a separate book, each of the seven main parts that make up the 1,600-page Systematic Theology, making it more portable, affordable, and less daunting.
Part 2—Making Sense of Who God Is—explores the existence of God through inner knowledge and evidence found in Scripture and in nature.
Important Topics Include:
- Traditional “Proofs” for God’s Existence: covering cosmological, teleological, ontological, and moral evidence of the Creator.
- The Trinity: the three distinct persons each equal to the whole being of God.
- Creation: including the assertion that, when all the facts are understood, there will be “no final conflicts” between Scripture and natural science.
- God’s Providence: the Creator’s continued involvement with all created things and human actions that make a difference within God’s providence.
Written in a friendly tone, appealing to the emotions and the spirit as well as the intellect, Making Sense of Who God is helps readers overcome wrong ideas, make better decisions on new questions, and grow as Christians.
