The goal of this book is to help readers learn more about God and how to follow Him. By understanding theological terms, it helps Christians understand what God has revealed in Scripture and the world. The authors want the reader to use this information for knowledge-based obedience.
Each of the 10 chapters deals with one of the main areas of Christian doctrine. All of the terms in that section are related to the main topic, and are organized for the best understanding. The authors do a good job of explaining different views within Christianity and presenting the facts without giving an opinion.
The authors explain that you can read this book cover to cover, or you can use it like a theological dictionary (the index in the back helps you find the term you're looking for). Since I was reading this for review, I read it cover to cover, and I found that it's very dense that way and I don't feel like I got anything out of this book. I would recommend this more as a reference book to look up terms, but I honestly feel like you'd be just as well getting a theological dictionary or simply Googling terms when you need a definition.
Overall, I gave this 3/5 stars.
