A Brief Book Notice from Books At a Glance
by Fred G. Zaspel
J.I. Packer explains why Berkhof has been so widely used and appreciated: “Nobody, it seems to me, matches Berkhof for his skill in saying much, very straightforwardly in a small space. He goes to the heart of every truth.” Despite my differences with Berkhof in areas of ecclesiology and eschatology I have always found him to be a valuable read – for just the reasons Packer mentions. Always insightful and always precise.
This expanded edition includes the text of Berkhof’s famous Introductory Volume to Systematic Theology, previously published separately.
Especially if you teach theology, you want to have Berkhof.
