I need to confess something.
The word “theology” used to freak me out. A few years ago, I couldn’t help but be intimidated by words like “exegetical” and “Septuagint,” not to mention issues like predestination that have been debated for centuries. These ideas seemed so far out of reach. And since I wasn’t going to be pastor, I figured theology was not something I needed to be concerned about.
Boy, was I wrong.
Theology, which can be loosely defined as how we view God, influences every aspect of our life. Our thoughts about God—whether true or false—not only affect the choices we make, but how we view this world and ourselves.
Studying theology is just another way of saying you want to know God on a deeper level. Once I realized this, the word “theology” became a lot less intimidating. I didn’t need a Ph.D. or a background in Greek and Hebrew (although those are great things); I just needed a place to start.
In hindsight, I wish I could have started with the Moody Theological Studies Collection.
With ten books ranging from 90 to 1,376 pages, you have a concise collection of powerful knowledge that is also easy to read. Firmly rooted in Scripture, the authors address a full spectrum of foundational topics like predestination, worship, missions, spiritual maturity, and even economics!
Whether theology has intimidated you or not, if you have a craving to really know God and understand him, I would take a look at this collection.
Oh, and act quickly! The Moody Theological Studies Collection is on Pre-Pub and is about to go into development. It won’t be this price for long!
