Within these pages, you’ll find:A systematic overview of the Bible’s major doctrines, including God, the Bible, the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, the church, Satan, sin, salvation, man, angels, demons, events to come, and moreA glossary of theological termsA list of key Scripture passages for the study of theologyFeaturing charts, definitions, and Scripture and subject indices, Basic Theology will give you a clear and comprehensive picture of Ryrie’s approach to systematic theology.

10. Institutes of the Christian Religion
Author: by John Calvin
Hendrickson offers a one-volume hardcover edition of one of Western Christianity’s foundational works. Re-typeset into a clean and modern typeface, this edition is easy to read for the modern eye. This book will appeal to libraries, seminarians, pastors, and laypeople.
Institutes of the Christian Religion by John Calvin is an introduction to the Bible and a vindication of Reformation principles by one of the Reformation’s finest scholars. At the age of twenty-six, Calvin published several revisions of his Institutes of the Christian Religion, a seminal work in Christian theology that altered the course of Western history and that is still read by theological students today.
It was published in Latin in 1536 and in his native French in 1541, with the definitive editions appearing in 1559 (Latin) and in 1560 (French). The book was written as an introductory textbook on the Protestant faith for those with some learning already and covered a broad range of theological topics from the doctrines of church and sacraments to justification by faith alone.
11. Everyone's a Theologian: An Introduction to Systematic Theology
Author: by R.C. Sproul
Who would want to be a theologian? Many people react negatively to the word theology, believing that it involves dry, fruitless arguments about minute points of doctrine. They prefer to focus on the basic truths of Scripture and may even declare, No creed but Christ.But as Dr. R.C.
Sproul argues, everyone is a theologian. This is because any time we think about a teaching of the Bible and strive to understand it, we are engaging in theology. Therefore, it is important that we put the Bible’s varied teachings together in a systematic fashion using proper, time-tested methods of interpretation so as to arrive at a theology that is consistent and founded on truth.
That is precisely what Dr. Sproul does in Everyone’s a Theologian: An Introduction to Systematic Theology. This book is anything but a dry discussion of minute points of doctrine. Instead, Dr. Sproul, again demonstrating his trademark ability to make complex subjects easily understood, surveys the basic truths of the Christian faith, reminding us once more of what God is like and of what He has done for His people in this world and the next.

13. Simply Trinity
Author: by Barrett
What if the Trinity we’ve been taught is not the Trinity of the Bible? In this groundbreaking book, Matthew Barrett reveals a shocking discovery: we have manipulated the Trinity, recreating the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in our own image.
We have distorted the Trinity to justify our countless social agendas. The result: we have drifted away from the orthodox Trinity of the Bible. With clarity, creativity, and conviction Barrett mines the scriptures as well as the creeds and confessions of the faith to help you rediscover the beauty and simplicity of our Triune God.
Barrett introduces you to The Dream Team, the best of the church fathers, who teach us how to interpret the Bible in a way that avoids past and present trinitarian heresies. You will also be surprised to learn that what you believe about the Trinity has untold consequences for salvation and the Christian life.
To truly know God, you must meet the One who is simply Trinity.
14. The Complete Apocrypha Collection of Lost and Rejected Scriptures: The Oldest Library of Ancient Texts including All The 12 Christian Apocryphal Books
Author: by History Academy
THE COLLECTION OF CHRISTIAN APOCRYPHAL BOOKS:All 12 Christian apocryphal books + All of the apocryphal additions to Daniel, Esther, and Psalms18 books in oneThe complete collection, high-quality, 8,5″ x 11″ paperback, with book, chapter, page, and verse numbering. Etymologically, the word “apocrypha” means “things that are hidden”, but why they were hidden is not clear.
Some have suggested that the books were “hidden” from common use because they contained esoteric knowledge, too profound to be communicated to any except the initiated… Others have suggested that such books were hidden due to their spurious heretical teaching.
This is the only modern translation of the complete collection of deuterocanonical books known popularly as “The Apocrypha”. The Literal Standard Version (LSV) is a modern translation that stays true to the original manuscripts. This handsome 8,5″ x 11″ edition features a matte finish with thick, high-quality, cream-colored pages.
These ancient texts provide commentators’ valuable insight into what many ancient Jews and early Christians believed when, God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets (Heb.1:1). The number of books in the Bible depends on which Bible is being referenced.
