Many people react negatively to the word theology, believing that it involves dry, fruitless arguments about minute points of doctrine. Yet as Dr. R.C. Sproul argues,everyone is a theologian. 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 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. Dr. Sproul, demonstrating his trademark ability to make complex subjects easy to understand, 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.

Grover Gardner, a familiar voice for works on theology, narrates this audiobook with a clear awareness of the weight of its subject matter. What's more, he offers a delivery of this layman's work with a conversational style that enables the listener to actively engage with it. At the same time, he empowers the listener to meditate on the doctrines discussed. With more 60 chapters, the listener can choose to treat this work as a daily devotional. To listen to Sproul's work is to feel as though you're sitting at the feet of a godly man, soaking in all of his wisdom.

Excellent Systematic Theology Primer
Everyone's a Theologian is another example of Christian Audio's love of the listener/reader. It is an excellent systematic Theology primer that proves beneficial to every believer.

The book is well organized and concise. Each section is given sufficient detail, but the reader should not expect an exhaustive handling of each theological topic.

While Dr. Sproul position is clear on a number of debated portions of theology, he does give adequate insight to differing views. It is usually quite clear where he settles on each particular topic.

The reader is often directed to further writing Dr. Sproul has done on specific topics. Although this has a negative effect in the audio version as it frequently feels the author is plugging his own content. It may be less intrusive to the flow of the text in a written version of the book. This may better have been left out of the audio recording.

Some may feel the technical exploration of God in Everyone's a Theologian cold and detached from a dynamic relationship with Christ. Yet such an exercise is all about discovering the rich detail in the tapestry of God's love and nature. Dr. Sproul's volume is helpful in revealing the beautiful character of God. Wed with a relationship to a Living God the result may be a deeper love and awe in Him.

Soli Deo Gloria!

Eloquently written and narrated!
"Everyone's a Theologian" by R.C. Sproul proclaims to be an introduction to Systematic Theology but don't let that deter you from listening to this superb work! Systematic Theology is a orderly, logical and cohesive approach to learning about the Christian faith. I recommend this work to every Christian no matter where you are in your walk with Christ. You will have the opportunity to learn numerous topics in a manner that R.C. Sproul makes approachable and understandable. (If you are familiar with Dr. Sproul you know that he is a premier lecturer, professor and Theologian!)
Narrated by Grover Gardner with ease and skill. Your attention will be glued to his voice and the content is just as gripping. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about the Christian faith! You will not regret it!
