Berkhof’s Manual of Christian Doctrine, Second Edition


I don’t know how this slipped under my radar, but it looks like someone has undertaken a reformatting of Louis Berkhof’s systematic theological summary, Manual of Christian Doctrine.  While the contents look the same, the formatting of the text has changed.  Now the volume contains a new font, is formatted with two columns per page and has some graphics and pictures inserted.  Anyway, it just looked like a sharp new version!  Enjoy!

  1. I remember going through this in high school. Because of the font, I thought it was 300 years old. The new style looks good, and I even saw it has blurbs of the confessions here and there in the text. The sword on the cover looks a little creepy, though. What are those words etched in it?

    Thanks for pointing this out!



  2. I think that the sword says something like “bring on Theocratic-America” – or something like that! [grin!]

    Yeah, hopefully the new formatting will make this seem a little less archaic for HS students. It’s such a great little summary!


  3. I prefer to think the sword is a reference to Ehud’s belly sneak attack…

    It’s meant to captivate the imagination!



  4. The Ehud idea would definitely make this book appeal more to high schoolers. Well played, Mr. Lenzner. Well Played.
