    The Christian Faith A Systematic Theology for Pilgrims On the Way by Michael Horton is not your average systematic theology It s not broken up into simple chapters ending in ology like Christology, hamaritology, ecclesiology, and the like Instead, Michael Horton means to tell a story because the doctrines of Scripture arise out of the drama of Scripture Or as he puts it, The Christian faith is, first and foremost, and unfolding dramaThe great doctrines of the Christian faith arise The Christian Faith A Systematic Theology for Pilgrims On the Way by Michael Horton is not your average systematic theology It s not broken up into simple chapters ending in ology like Christology, hamaritology, ecclesiology, and the like Instead, Michael Horton means to tell a story because the doctrines of Scripture arise out of the drama of Scripture Or as he puts it, The Christian faith is, first and foremost, and unfolding dramaThe great doctrines of the Christian faith arise out of this dramatic plot.For these reasons, The Christian Faith isn t primarily a catalog to reference all the topics that make up your typical systematic th...

    I tried reading this book a few years ago, but gave up before reaching 200 page mark However, I decided to go back and start it again I have been off work for a few weeks and thought that I should try and read a couple of STs during that time I have to say that it is in many ways an excellent book, and that it reads really well as a Reformed theodrama Michael Horton generally avoids the pitfalls that various modern Calvinists fall into in relation to divine impassibility and erroneous views I tried reading this book a few years ago, but gave up before reaching 200 page mark However, I decided to go back and start it again I have been off work for a few weeks and thought that I should try and read a couple of...

    Mike Horton and his colleagues at Westminster West with their pop calvinism and quasi Lutheranism, make me tired I don t know what else to say other than this volume was not produced out of a genuine need, conversely somehow it was even admittedly rushed to the presses which in turn left out key aspects within reformed dogmatics that were not addressed like the Decalogue amongst others or maybe it was because he didn t really want his law gospel dichotomy squarely clearly in print I Mike Horton and his colleagues at Westminster West with their pop calvinism and quasi Lutheranism, make me tired I don t know what else to say other than this volume was not produced out of a genuine need, conversely somehow it was even admittedly rushed to the presses which in turn left out key aspects within reformed dogmatics that were not addressed like the Decalogue amongst others or maybe it was because he didn t really want his law gospel dichotomy squarely clearly in print I don t know and quite frankly, I have stopped caring Overall, this massive tome won t really help It didn t draw me closer to God at least not intentionally, several times by way of reaction I was apophatically drawn to God , it didn t help me to cultivate a healthy view of culture its just a hipster version of a Calvinistic Lutheranism with a dash of self righteous confessionalism In the end, it was a waste of money in buying, it take...

    Horton s systematic theology is everything that I expected It is too long to review each individual part, but here are some summary observations The volume would serve as an excellent companion to other evangelical systematic theologies, such as those by Grudem or Erickson, especially if one wanted aspecifically Reformed perspective without organizing the theology around the Westminster Catechism The strongest doctrine in the book was the prolegomena section Given Horton s prior writi Horton s systematic theology is everything that I expected It is too long to review each individual part, but here are som...
