Book Review: Ken Erisman - Grounded in the Faith

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-sC0smk7pnSI/Uf_MfSbgabI/AAAAAAAAGa4/aEV8PjrL1MA/s320/groundedfaith.jpgThis book was a pleasure to read. Each chapter takes us through a different bible doctrine. Erisman also includes many scriptural references and quotes from theologians past and present.

He takes some deep doctrines and places them on the lower shelf so that those who are new in the Lord can understand them. This is basically a short, easy-to-read, Systematic Theology.

It would be a great book to give to some one who has just been saved or one who would like to know what the Bible says about a number of topics.

Ken touches on everything from Justification to the Divinity of Christ. Each chapter or session contains an overview, the teaching itself, quotes from a number of theologians and a list of questions to make sure you understand the text.

His theology is from the reformed tradition and his writing is very direct and understandable. There is also a great Forward by J.I. Packer.

Sections include subjects like: Justification, Regeneration, Overcoming temptations, Prayer, The Trinity, and much, much more.

It would be a good book to use in a Sunday School class or bible study. It is well written and never boring. I will definitely read  Erisman again.

I highly recommend it and give it 4 out of 5 stars.

I received this book, free of charge, from Baker Books and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
