The natural mindset of man is one of curiosity. We continually search for answers to the queries that are most often supernatural in nature or transcendent to the mind of man.
In Abstract of Systematic Theology Reverend Boyce delves into the theological mysteries of God that have often lain unanswered or dormant since the dawn of recorded history.
Using his gift of communication, Reverend Bryce presents a coherent and detailed treatise including several empirical questions:
What is God’s nature?
How does God sustain the universe?
How does God relate to humanity?
How does God reveal himself?
Reverend James Boyce was born in 1827, in Charleston, South Carolina to a wealthy family of practicing Presbyterians. Reverend Boyce was educated at Brown University and later at the Princeton Theological Seminary. Later, he would become the first president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary where he would continue to teach theology classes for the next thirty years. From the inception of Rev. Boyce’s ministry until his death, he frequently stressed the importance of theological training and education for all pastors and teachers. A year before his death, Reverend Boyce described Abstract of Systematic Theology with the following statement:
“This volume is published as a practical textbook, for the study of the system of doctrine taught in the Bible, rather than as a contribution to theological science.”
“The Brighton Christian Classic Series is a rendering of some of history’s greatest theological voices, all tailored into an easy-to-read format designed to enable Christian growth,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing LLC. “These master works are intended to stir deep contemplation and fulfill man’s insatiable desire to understand ourselves and our Creator.”
