Author: Wayne Grudem
The condensed version of the much larger Systematic Theology, this is definitely a 'must-read' as it covers the ground work of what it means to be a Christian. It touches all the big and sometimes hard-to-grasp topics, like election and justification, in a very readable way. It's not all you need to know, but an opening into discovering more about what the Bible teaches. Each of the 20 chapters deals with a different topic, always based on the Bible. One of the book's most helpful aspects is that each chapter ends with some questions to ponder, which really helps to solidify what you've read. It is useful both for new Christians and for those not so new, as it covers areas we sometimes don't engage with; with chapters on the final judgment, or angels and demons. It is even a means to engage with friends who are interested in finding out more about Christianity.
