really liked it
bookshelves: theology
Read in June, 2010

Solid. Has some 'moments of glory' in a few outstanding chapters where he really nails it, but also some fairly average chapters that seem not fully formed. Highlights were chapters on Trinity, Image, Incarnation, Cross and Church -- even if you've read him on these topics before, he really nails them in Doctrine. A little slower to read than his other books, but still an accessible intro to systematic theology. I think he struggles at times with the balance between letting loose on his own personal emphases/hobby horses, and keep the neutral tone of an objective overview. I hope he releases a 2nd Edition in 5 years, seems like a book that would benefit a lot from that.
