Basic Bible Doctrines: Systematic Theology for the Person in the Pew was written by Michael Gowens, and a revised edition was released in 2015.
“Every Christian should be a systematic theologian. Each should be able to formulate the core truths of the Bible in an orderly arrangement so as to form the big picture portrayed in God’s word. It is not enough for Christians to simply store bits and pieces of Bible trivia about various subjects, or to simply derive comfort from selected passages of Scripture. A truly robust discipleship is the product of a mind that thinks theologically. Doctrine is vital.”
