Unknown Binding Verified Purchase. I gave this to my husband, and I will let him wade through it. Hard to find set in good condition. Books were as advertised. A couple of the dust covers were torn, and there was damage to a few corners, perhaps due to shoddy packing job.

I ordered this set for my father as a gift, but because I went out the country I am not sure what the set he received look like. I ordered the set because I find the material helpful and caused a desire to read and learn ssystematic about the Word of God. One person found this helpful. My wife and I have spent decades daily reading aloud through the Bible together.


Sometimes we consulted commentaries when we wanted to know more about a passage. We never thought about reading an in-depth work until I tried Chafer’s Systematic Theology. We had no idea how extensive it was because we have a digital version, and that saves a chunk of shelf space since Chafer’s is an 8-volume work. We just completed the foward after several weeks of reading, which gave an overview of the set.

Chafer warns that most systematic theologies ignore or omit major topics. These truncated versions leave the theology student less aware of important topics so that when he steps into the pulpit he is ill-equipped to properly minister to his flock. Why would a retired couple from medical professions want to read a systematic theology?

After all, a diligent study of the Bible is sufficient systematix the Word of Thrology is living and active. However, it takes a great deal of effort to pull together all the great biblical themes. We can competently explain that salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ is the most important doctrine in the Bible.

It is clearly taught in both the Old and New Theilogy. In his forward, Chafter promises to take all those loose ends and bring them together in a systematic way so we can understand how all the Bible’s themes fit together. We theolofy now enthusiastically ready to begin the long journey through this work. As an example of how a systematic theology would be helpful, a Christian Bible teacher, chater our friend, claims that nowhere in the Old Testament is there any indication of humans promised eternal life by faith, and no indication of a physical resurrection, but he is greatly mistaken.

He considers Enoch’s rapture and Elijah’s ascension to be special cases. Only two men have been taken into God’s eternal kewis The appearance of Moses and Elijah on the mountain at Yeshua’s Jesus’ transfiguration, shows them both to be alive, even though Moses had died on Mount Nebo looking into the promised land. And Jesus explained to the Sadducees who didn’t believe in the resurrection while the Pharisees didthat God was the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, that God is the God of the living and not the dead.


Chafer promises he is going to thoroughly cover the topics most systematic theologies either treat lightly or omit completely. DoctorDaveT mentions he has a thorough review of Chafer’s theology on his website. He probably should put it on Amazon where it would help people understand why they should get it, and that might encourage others to buy it.

We’ll continue to read Chafer’s theology and add comments to our review, but his lengthy forward has already taught us some priceless truths. My biggest mistake was accidentally buying the abridged version of this and taking copious notes within that version.

I so wish that I had purchased the unabridged version instead. I first bought this set back in the 70’s This is the greatest Systematic Theology ever written.
