This book is exactly what it purports to be: a book on BASIC theology. It is wonderfully written and is a great starter book for the new-to-theology student. I recommend it wholeheartedly. ( )

Very good synopsis of the major doctrines of the Bible. Dr. Ryrie provides many illustrations to help understand complex teachings. ( )
