Solid! Thorough, Yet Concise and Enjoyable! (10/9/2014)
Reviewed by (Andy Anderson, Kent, Washington) - Basic Theology - for e-Sword
This has been an education, reading through my Basic Theology by Dr. Ryrie. I have been a Christian for many years, and have read and studied quite a bit of Christian Literature, and have an extensive library. It would not be complete without this volume. Dr. Ryrie is sound in his teaching, and covers the topics thoroughly, yet not too wordy, and at the same time enjoyable. I created a reading plan, so that I read a portion every weekday, and that worked great alongside my daily bible reading. I have learned tremendously, and am better equipped to have an answer for others. This book is in my fav 5 in equipping others. Invest in your Christian life by purchasing these type of wonderful resources, and devouring them. The price through www.eStudySource.com is awesome!

I love E-Sword and have recommended it to many friends and family. Ryrie's Theology is a classic and is a resource I use often. Now thanks to E-Sword, I don't have to get up and go to my library and pull out my worn out Ryrie with its frayed pages and broken binder. And it remembers all my searches. That coupled with cut and paste has greatly enhanced my studies. Thanks E-Sword!
Really great book! (11/30/2013)

This book is written simply and clearly! So useful! Every Bible student should find something helpful here. The definitions and logic are superb! The only thing that could maybe be clearer would be the eschatology section. If you're looking for a good intro to Christian theology that will make you want to praise Him more--this is it!

Classic Ryrie (4/30/2013)
Reviewed by (John Stewart, Andalusia, Alabama) - Basic Theology - for e-Sword
Watching the Church slide downhill over the past 50 years, I learned to respect what Ryrie has written. Some has been for the public at large; this is for someone more serious but one who still deals with the original languages, though in their English translation. Good for a concise and reasonably complete basic theology. For example, in Sin, he describes 20 Greek and Hebrew words for it. Ryrie's stand is at the core of Dallas Seminary 40-50 years ago: their best years doctrinally IMHO. The eSword arrangement is very easy to follow. The notes are with the chapter. The eSword price is more than the cost of the original book.

Best and Clearest Systematic Theology (6/29/2011)
Reviewed by (Thomas Nite, Ringgold, GA) - Basic Theology - for e-Sword
I teach Theology in several seminaries in the former Soviet Union, and I find that Ryrie is the easiest for most students to understand. In few words he explains doctrines in a way that requires no understanding of theological jargon. I highly recommend this work for all serious students of the Bible.
