In this course we will embark upon a systematic study of God's Word to learn its facts and principles; from which will then be formulated some basic biblical doctrines.
Prerequisite courses: Salvation, Eternal Security, Bible Doctrines, The Church, and
The Bible and also the Second Year course on The Millenium must be successfully completed before taking the Systematic Theology course.
The textbook for this course is:
THE EXISTENCE AND ATTRIBUTES OF GOD; THE AUTHORITY AND DOCTRINES
OF THE SCRIPTURES; THE INSTITUTIONS AND ORDINANCES OF THE GOSPEL.
This textbook, written by J. J. Butler and Ransom Dunn, is a classic work on Systematic Theology published in 1892. The subjects addressed in this book are synopsized quite well in the title of the work.
This course will differ from the course on Bible Doctrines in that it will expand upon the facts and principles from God's Word from which various doctrines are formulated; whereas the Doctrines course presented the doctrines, more or less, in their finished forms. To accomplish this end, this course will
delve into the "why and how" as well as the "what;" whereas the Doctrines course was more concerned with the "what" in its exposition.
