This is an excellent overview of Bible doctrines. It is Biblical and conservative in its presentation, is clear and digestible to read, and it take students through the major Bible doctrines in a simple, concise survey. It is a resource I would seriously consider using in my basic level Systematic Theology/Theology Survey/Bible Doctrines classes. Every Christian should also read this book to get a solid handle on the major Bible doctrines of the Christian faith.

A very good and concise overview of Biblical Doctrine. It helped solidify certain things I already did believe and helped me ponder over the Scriptures. While there is at least one instance in the book where I disagree with the author, I feel like this is a wonderful introductory work on understanding the Doctrines of the faith. It is well written and very easy to understand. Ryrie isn't needlessly wordy and is careful to make sure that the reader knows that certain doctrines are open for discus ...more
I found this book very informational. I am getting more and more familiar with my Bible and yet I learned several bible doctrines that I either didn't know much about or didn't know about at all. This is a great book for anyone wanting an overview with many bible passages to confirm the statements talked about.
I don't like to give poor reviews, but I didn't really care for it. I think it was too advanced for people who just wanted a general overview of the scriptures. I wasn't inspired, educated, or impressed. This is the first survey I have read, so I will have to guess that they are all questions and musings that don't really lead to much. He addressed a lot of issues and arguments but didn't make a solid case for any. Hopefully someone else will enjoy it more than I did.

Ryrie does an excellent job of breaking down fundamental doctrines of Evangelical Theology. This is a great read for new Christians or anyone trying to expand their knowledge of what they believe.
