|Foundations of the Christian Faith|
By James Montgomery Boice
Foundations of the Christian Faith combines four of Boice's books into one volume. Book one deals with our sovereign God, the knowledge of God, the Word of God, the attributes of God, and God's creation. The second book examines God as redeemer, the fall of the human race, law and grace, the person of Christ, and the work of Christ. Book three is about our relationship or awakening to God, the Spirit of God, how God saves sinners, the life of the Christian, and the work of God. Finally, in book four, Boice looks at God and history, time, history, the church of God, secular and sacred cities, and the end of history. Truly a well-reasoned and coherent systematic theology. Boice brings his respected wisdom and insights together into a beautiful exposition of Christian doctrine.

By J.I. Packer
J. I. Packer offers 94 concise studies which are only a couple of pages long. This allows you to find the answers you need quickly, but at the same time, there are plenty of Scripture references on every page. You can go as deep as you wish at your own pace. In these chapters, Packer navigates through what he calls the "permanent essentials of Christianity." He expresses these essentials in such a way that you can both understand and appreciate the greatness of God. Discover for yourself how Christian theology is not just a system of beliefs, but a way of life.
By J.I. Packer & Thomas C. Oden
Is the evangelical church drifting away from the unity Christ desires as we fragment into ever-smaller divisions? Packer and Oden believe a significant theological consensus still holds us together. Here they examine 16 theological themes in light of over 75 key statements of faith---from the 1974 Lausanne Covenant to the Amsterdam Declaration of 2000.
|Great Doctrines of the Bible|
By Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Meals aren't merely for chefs---and theology isn't just for scholars! Based on a lecture series by one of the 20th century's leading evangelical preachers, this 3-in-1 volume sets the table with a readable feast of doctrinal teaching. Lloyd-Jones offers pastors, students, and laypeople crystal clear guidance for grasping and applying key biblical principles.
By Charles Hodge
This carefully abridged edition retains the same format, outline, and classical statements of biblical truth as Charles Hodge's original work. It omits refutations of errors in vogue during Hodge's time, references to church history, non-English quotations and other items relevant only to the 19th century. Hodge's warm devotion, careful elucidation, and logical presentation make his systematic theology an incomparable treasure for the student.
|A Body of Divinity|
By Thomas Watson
A Body of Divinity deals with the foremost doctrinal and experimental truths of the Christian Faith. It is based on the Westminster Assembly's "Shorter Catechism," in which the main principles of Christianity that lie scattered in the Scriptures are brought together and set forth in the form of question and answer.
|Redemption Accomplished and Applied|
By John Murray
Murray systematically explains the two sides of redemption: its accomplishment by Christ and its application to the life of the redeemed. In Part I he considers the necessity, nature, perfection, and extent of the atonement. In Part II Murray offers careful expositions of the scriptural teaching about calling, regeneration, sanctification, and glorification.
|The Doctrine of God|
By John Frame
A masterful treatment of The Doctrine of God! Offering a cogent defense of the theology of lordship, John Frame provides fresh insight on transcendence and immanence, human responsibility and freedom, evil and God's agency, God and gender, theophany and incarnation, and other issues, all in light of the Trinity. His exhaustive analysis is sure to set a new standard in systematic theology.

Theologian par excellence, Calvin is best known for his Institutes of the Christian Religion, a theological introduction to the Bible and vindication of Reformation principles.
