The various articles are all exceptionally brief (2-3 pages), so this isn't a place for in-depth reading on the various doctrines of the Bible. But it is a good source for quick summaries and biblical references on the topics addressed. ( )

《简明神学》这本书,是巴刻牧师将他认为属基督教永久的要理,以精简的篇幅表达出来。这些要理是我们的信仰​系统,也是我们的一种生活方式。本书作者巴刻认为,神学是为赞美神与操练敬虔用的,所以神学表达之路,是引​人注意神的同在。最佳的神学是能使人感受到活在神的注目之下,并且歌颂祂的荣耀。巴刻将这永久的要理以简明​的篇幅表达出来,帮助读者更容易掌握神学之道。​

Great reference resource. ( )

This might (and maybe is) called a devotional theology. Short (2-3 pages) chapters on theological terms or concepts clearly describe the meaning and include Scriptural references. A good, accessible reference for Pastor Steve's THEO 300 series classes! ( )

Packer does a great job of explaining theological topics completely and, yes, concisely. A good tool to have on your shelf. ( )
