LECTURES:  Systematic Theology Lectures and Detailed Outlines (31 lectures)

These lectures are by Rev. Dr. Carl Bogue (31 lectures) through the entire Westminster Confession of Faith.  This particular series covers chapters 1 through 5 including the study of Holy Scriptures, of God and the Trinity, and of God’s Creation and Providence.  He uses the original Westminster Confession of 1647. Along with the lectures, we also include a very detailed outline which essentially eliminates the vast majority of note-taking.  A word-for-word transcript is also included.

The audio lectures are in an MP3 format and are available by download.


Thy Word is Truth by E. J. Young (new inexpensive paperback available)

Thy Word is Truth explains the importance of the doctrine of biblical inspiration. Without it the reliablitlty of the Bible is in serious doubt, the integrity of Jesus is put in question, and the only final authority men have in matters of faith becomes their own conscience. If we cannot trust what Scripture says about itself, how can we trust what it says about God, about man’s need, or about Christ’s saving power? To write such a book as this demands special gifts, and a rare combination of qualifications, E.J. Young possessed these to an unusual degree. He was an outstanding linguist and biblical scholar, and knew the text of the Bible intimately. He understood the doctrinal issues which are at stake. He possessed a lucid mind and pen. He was also willing to rest his own soul on the convictions to which Scripture itself drove him – even when this involved swimming against the tide of the world of scholarship in which he moved with high distinction. His blend of true scholarship with humble commitment to Christ makes this study a reliable introduction to a question which continues to haunt the church at the beginning of the 21st century.

Systematic Theology by Louis Berkhof (new hardback)

This one book will be used throughout all of the Systematic Theology courses (1-4) and need only be purchased once.

For the first time in its long and acclaimed history, Louis Berkhof’s monumental treatment of the doctrines of the Reformed faith is now available together in one volume with his Introduction to the Study of Systematic Theology, which serves as the prolegomenon to his theology. Designed to be read together with his Systematic Theology, the Introduction includes Berkhof’s discussions of the nature and character of dogmatics, the methods and history of theological systematics, and the principia, or foundations, of theology: Scripture and God. This edition also includes a new preface by Richard A. Muller that explains both the publishing history and the relation and importance of the Introduction to the rest of Berkhof’s text.

Written in a concise style and organized in a manner ideal for detailed study, Systematic Theology covers the full range of systematic loci including the doctrines of God, anthropology, Christology, soteriology, ecclesiology, and eschatology. The work also includes an extensive bibliography and full indexes to the authors, subjects, and Scriptures referenced in the text. Revised and enlarged throughout his lifetime until it reached its final form, Systematic Theology not only stands as Berkhof’s magnum opus, but also is widely considered to be the most important twentieth-century compendium of Reformed theology.

Westminster Confession of Faith (plus Catechisms & complete Standards) by Westminster Assembly

This is the latest and most accurate edition of the approved documents coming forth from the Westminster Assembly (1643-1649), considered to be greatest of all the creeds of the Christian Church, especially for its thoroughness.  The text is based upon the critical text of S. W. Caruthers and is the latest such edition (2003) with all these corrections.  It is the original confessional standards approved and ratified by the assembly in 1647.  It includes the Larger and Shorter Catechisms, along with The Sum of Saving Knowledge, The National Covenant, The Solemn League and Covenant, The Directory for the Public Worship of God, The Form of Presbyterian Church Governmernt, and The Directory for Family Worship.  Included throughout are the full Scripture proof texts, making it uniquely convenient for study and discussion.

This document is used by the vast majority of Presbyterian Churches in the world, including many in the United States.  Some in the United States follow a later American edition which was based upon this one.

This book is highly recommended for use in the Systematic Theology courses taught for Reformation International Theological Seminary by Dr. Carl Bogue (SYS 501, 502, 601, 602).  It is available in both hardback and paperback editions.
