The Essential Scriptures: A Handbook of the Biblical Texts for Key Doctrines (Hardcover)
Which Bible verses support that doctrine?
All good theology is grounded in the Word of God. Yet sometimes it’s hard to keep track of which scriptures support certain doctrines. That’s where The Essential Scriptures comes in. With an easy-to-use handbook format, this reference work moves through the main headings of systematic theology, offering full quotations of the biblical verses that undergird various doctrines. No more jumping back and forth between multiple sources. The Essential Scriptures puts it all in one place, providing not only the biblical support but also a learned exposition of how those passages serve as the basis for the doctrine under discussion.
Drawing from the literal and trustworthy New American Standard Bible, scholar and theologian Kevin Zuber gives you the biblical underpinnings for every doctrine, organized around the primary headings of systematic theology:
- Theology Proper
- Anthropology and Hamartiology
Every pastor, scholar, student, and lover of theology needs this book in their library. The Essential Scriptures will be a classic that generations of theologians turn to again and again.
