Vol. 1 of the second edition of Garrett's well-known survey of systematic theology. Famous for its completeness and objectivity, this volume has been called a "gold mine of useful information." It is one of the most comprehensive contemporary studies of Christian beliefs ever written. This volume covers: Revelation and the Bible, The Trinity, Creation, Humankind and Sin, and The Person of Jesus Christ. Garrett, who holds earned doctorates from Harvard and Southwestern Baptist Seminary has taught theology for over forty years. His approach starts with divine revelation as recorded in the Bible, but also includes a presentation of Christian tradition and Christian experience, citing the views of theologians from the Patristic Age to the present.
