Good Baptist Theology Books?

Recommended Posts


I'm looking for a good, Baptist book on systematic theology. I'd prefer something that is not an introductory level book. I'm more interested in something that would be used as a senior level undergraduate book or even a graduate level book.

Any ideas?

Why does it have to be Baptist?

I would recommend Lewis Sperry Chafer to anyone. He was a Congregationalist minister which is very similar to Baptist. I'm not suggesting everything is spot on but what makes his set of Systematic Theology the best IMO is the practical applications he makes along with the doctrine he teaches. It's not a dry read.

Here's it is if you want to check it out in pdf format:

Here is his book Major Bible Themes, which is an abridged version of his Systematic Theology, pdf format:

Can I be obvious and suggest the Bible?

I am not trying to be sarcastic - I have several books on sytematic theology, but I rarely use them nowadays. Not because I know it all - I certainly do not!
I have found over the years that use commentaries less and less and si'smply use the Bible itself.

Wilmington's guide to the Bible is not bad - he tends to present several sides to any issue, but then puts forth his views on which one is strongest.
The problem is that there will be no one commentator that any of us agree with 100%.
They are after all only men's thoughts on the Bible.
