"Read everything in the IVP Contours of Theology series. Pure
gold."--Kevin DeYoung, senior pastor at University Reformed Church
in East Lansing, Michigan
"This series has been around for over a decade now and has established itself as providing learned yet accessible treatments of key topics in systematic theology. The authors are not only fine theological thinkers, they are also passionate churchmen with a love for God's people and a desire to see the church grow in her knowledge of grace. Each volume blends exegesis, theological synthesis and judicious dialogue with the history of theology to provide an excellent treatment of the chosen topic. Highly recommended for thoughtful Christians who want to deepen their knowledge of Christian theology."--Carl R. Trueman, Paul Woolley Professor of Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary
