Everyone who wants to be skilled in their occupation or trade needs certain tools to be effective. A carpenter for example needs a hammer, a saw and certain other tools for his trade. A mechanic needs wrenches and screwdrivers and the such to be able to do his job. For the Pastor, Bible teacher, Evangelist, Sunday School teacher, or other individuals involved in either some type of full time ministry or lay ministry at their church one group of tools that are most surely needed by them are Bible Study and Reference books (tools). The Moody Handbook of Theology by Paul Enns is one such book or tool that should be in the library of anyone involved in ministry in any capacity.

There are 5 parts or sections in author Enn’s handbook that covers theology from different aspects. Part 1 for example covers “Biblical Theology”; (The introduction to Old Testament and New Testament Theology, Theology of the Edenic era and other key era’s in the Old Testament as well as various aspects of New Testament Theology such as the Theology of the Synoptics, the Theology of Acts, of Paul and others). In Part 2 author Enns shares information about what is called “Systematic Theology” (which includes the Doctrine of Christology which is a study of the doctrine of Christ for example or The Doctrine of Soteriology which is the study of the doctrine of Salvation as well as 7 other areas of doctrine that are essential to the faith).

In Part 3 the author covers the area of “Historical Theology;” (For example, Ancient Theology, Reformation Theology, Modern Theology and others). Part 4 provides information about “Dogmatic Theology” which looks at such areas as Calvinistic Theology, Arminian Theology and others of importance. Then in Part 5 Contemporary Theology is covered which looks at Liberal Theology, Neoorthodox Theology, Catholic Theology and even the “EmergingChurch.” Also included in the handbook are over 50 different helpful charts to aid in your study of Theology and The Word of God and a concise and handy glossary.

What I like about author Enns Handbook of Theology is that it is very easy to read and understand which is important. And his handbook can be most helpful to the beginning student of the Scriptures as well as someone who has an extensive education as well as experience in the ministry. So I give the Moody Handbook of Theology a big thumbs up!
