I would recommend "Theological Studies, Volumes 1 & 2" by Dr. Peter S. Ruckman, which can be ordered from http://www.kjv1611.org. The catologue is here http://www.kjv1611.org/2008%20catalog/cat-8-23.pdf

Peace and Love,
Stephen

Hello Harley. I'd suggest "Systematic Theology" by Louis Berkof. It is well written and readable and Solid. You can find it on Christian Book Distributors { Christianbook.com } for a decent price. Hardback.

The same author has another volume in paperback. "Summary of Christian Doctrine." It is priced less, as it has less content.

"Abstract of Systematic Theology" by J.P. Boyce [ Boyce was one of the Founders of the Southern Baptist Convention Seminary in Kentucky.]

Manual of Theology and Manual of Church Order by John L. Dagg

Hope this helps you.

Lewis Sperry Chafer's 8 volume collection. It's a steal at christianbook.com for under $50.00.
It's the Magna Carta on Dispensational Theology.

Thank you. I have those and purchased them from christianbook.com. I will admit I was surprised to see the RV used as I thought Dallas Theological Seminary in those days used KJV.

Thank you. For the Reformed perspective I might try Berkof.

Harley, while I was in college, I read nearly all the recommendations from forum members here, they are all good, for practical theology Dr. Ruckman is about the best for general studies such as salvation and the Holy Spirit, etc. When I owned his Theological Studies they were individual booklets and i bought them as he was writing them. I see now he has them all together in a couple volumes. I want them again for a quick reference guide, but the best systematic theology is Isaiah 28:9-13 in a KJV, a good concordance or Bible program like SWORDSEARCHER, E-SWORD, or ONLINE BIBLE, and a thick notebook. An example of what I mean is a recent study in this forum on bible versions that change "faith OF Christ" to "faith IN Christ" that corrupts what I call the doctrine of Imputed Faith that is grounded in Ephesians 2. I tell people that and they give me a blank stare. They never heard of it or even considered it. God does not inspire "new revelations" but if it's for His glory and for the edification of the Body of Christ, He will show you something maybe He didn't show RA Torrey. He showed Luther that indulgences were wrong and what did that fruit produce?

There is not one single verse in the Bible that says Bible study can't be fun or enjoyable, that's what "edification" is about. Building yourself up in His perfect will and knowledge.

Now, have fun my friend, and enjoy!

Tony
