Series: Books Worth Reading – General Theological Works
Starting a new series today entitled, “Books Worth Reading.” The purpose of this series is an attempt to have a preliminary list of books, certainly not exhaustive, spanning various theological disciplines. Once I am finished with this series I’ll post all of the books in the resource section of this blog.
Here is where you come in. I need your help. I certainly have not read, nor am I aware of, all works relating to given topic. If you think there is something that should be added to a list let me know in the comments section and I’ll strongly consider adding it. I won’t be able to add everything, nor do I want to. These lists are not meant to be exhaustive. Rather, these books are some of the standard resources in particular fields. Some of these works will be Christian classics while others will be contemporary pieces. PLEASE help me by adding to the list!
The categories that will be covered in the following weeks are: General Works, Theological Method, Bibliology, Theology Proper, Anthropology, Hamartiology, Christology, Pneumatology, Soteriology, Ecclesiology, Eschatology, and Church History.
The first category is General Works on Theology:
- Augustine - On Christian Teaching
- Thomas Aquinas – The Summa Theologica 5 vols
- Herman Bavinck – Reformed Dogmatics 4 Vols
- John Calvin – Institutes of the Christian Religion 2 Vols
- Carl Henry – God Revelation and Authority 6 Vols
- Thomas Oden – Classic Christianity: A Systematic Theology
- Francis Turretin – Institutes of Elenctic Theology 3 Vols
- Kevin Vanhoozer – Remythologizing Theology
This list is intentionally short. What is missing? What needs to be added?
