Doctrine: What Christians Should Believe by Mark Driscoll and Gerry Breshears

I think this is a really impressive work. Why? There are ten to a dozen Systematic Theologies in the market. For the most part they are big books which can intimidate or look to daunting for many Christians. Driscoll and Breshears have pulled off something unique. They have a substantial book, and  by substantial I mean it has lots of information. Each chapter covers the topic thoroughly. And yet, the book is not dense, or hard to read. Far from it. It is remarkably easy to read. But what this book does very well is to limit itself to 13 chapters and thus, providing a template of doctrines which we should all as Christians uphold. While Driscoll and Breshears do take positions their writing and presentation of the material in each chapter is so comprehensive that you come away with an all round understanding of each doctrine. A must read and a great asset for teaching doctrine. This is also a wonderful gift for the lay person in Church who wants to have a substantial understanding of the major doctrines of Christianity. Highly Recommended.
