Combining RR-BB.com into RaptureForums.com

Because it has become insanely difficult to manage a bulletin board these days, the managers of Rapture Ready and Rapture Forums have decided to join our boards together under a software program that is easier to manage. Because RF has their database operating well under an Enforo license, we decided to make Rapture Forums the focal point of a consolidation. Since Chris, the owner of RF, has long experience in running a forum, he can better manage the problems that come with this technology.

If you do not have an account at https://www.raptureforums.com/forums/, please sign up. By the end of November, it will become the forward address of RR-BB.com

  • Best book of basic (or systematic) theology

    A cool guy i met reccomended systematic theology by wayne a grudem. From what he said, it appeared to have the tight attributes, but he (the guy) is calvinist. I am not calvinist and im not arminian either because i believe in eternal security but i lean towards the arminian side of the sliding scale. *sorry if arminianism isnt allowed? I havent posted in a long time* Are there any good systematic theology books out there? Or basic theology? I know my Bible well but im a beginner at theology. Mods please dont move to book section unless you have to (because this is more apologetics based and this gets more traffic so ill have a better chance at an answer).

    He is the author of, among other books, Systematic Theology: An Introduction to Biblical Doctrine, which advocates a Calvinistic soteriology, the verbal plenary inspiration and inerrancy of the Bible, believerís baptism, a plural-elder form of church government, and the complementarian view of gender relationships. Grudem holds to noncessationist Charismatic beliefs and was at one time a qualified supporter of the Vineyard Movement and one of the main apologists and spokesmen for reuniting Charismatic, Reformed, and Evangelical churches.
    The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
    Day to day pours forth speech, And night to night reveals knowledge.
    (Psa 19:1b-2)

      I have "Basic Theology" by Charles Ryrie. I haven't read it cover to cover, but so far I haven't found anything obviously wrong. It is only one volume so it may not have the depth of other ones which have two or more books (not necessarily a bad thing).

      I vote against Grudem's Systematic Theology, I thought it was too Calvinistic and I think I remember it had some Charismatic viewpoints too.

        Actually clemson, your thread will do better here in BBD because many of our members do not visit Apologetics. Apologetics can be a rough and tumble environment wherein we fiercely defend the Word and therefore it's not a place for the kind of traffic you wish to see your topic generate.
