Systematic Theology: What is it and Why is it Important?

 Here is a short video I did on the importance of systematic theology.  It starts with an analogy as to why it is important and then briefly covers the eight main categories usually associated with systematic theology.

  1. What a great idea for you to offer this video definition–you would not be surprised at how much the usual church experience leaves out. I can’t be the only one who wants to know how Christian thinking addresses questions that arise about the nature of God, the way the natural world is set up and how that coincides with God as creator, the role/necessity of sacrifice for atonement,and the role of prayer and its answers. It seems that the support or argumentation for such basics isn’t readily available–what is more available is preaching to the choir/acceptance on faith,and sceptical arguments against this and that.

    Especially for me, what is missing are answers that go beyond pointing to pertinent verses in the Bible. Not being “in the field,” I do not have good guidance to the literature–which might be a few good, general books/texts to read with a general orientation.
