Systematic Thinking On Systematic Theology

Systematic Theology has taken a beating this year in evangelical circles. Yet we should not dismiss it out-of-hand or discard it. Scott R. Swain offers some blueprint concepts for our systematic lumber.

In its task of tracing the course of God’s works in nature, grace, and glory, systematic theology follows a historical or dramatic organizing principle. Within a well-ordered system of theology, each doctrine is not only traced to God as its author and end. Each doctrine is also coordinated with other doctrines on a dramatic-historical axis from creation to the consummation of the kingdom of God. Systematic theology is God-centered, redemptive-historical biblical interpretation.
