Item Description...
McKim examines Reformed beliefs on sixteen theological topics (e.g., scripture, the Trinity, sin, salvation, the person of Jesus; Baptism) and discusses distinctive emphases of the Reformed faith. He shows how Reformed beliefs relate to the broader ecumenical family of Christian teachings.

Publishers Description
This guide examines Reformed beliefs on 16 theological topics, and shows how Reformed understanding relates to the broader ecumenical family of Christian teachings. The author deals with each doctrine's biblical basis, its handling throughout church history, its specific emphases within the reformed tradition, and its significance for the church in the 21st century. Each chapter ends with discussion questions, is written in non-technical language, and directs the reader via endnotes to further study of primary and secondary sources.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
NOT a text book - a good book!  May 1, 2008
I thought this was a great work. I was expecting something dry, because it is about Reformed Theology! But McKim writes in a wonderful manner that provides both depth and readability. What I thought would be another dry seminary-type book is a wonderful resource for pastors, laypersons, and those who are interested in understanding the Reformed understanding of scripture.
Not Thoroughly Reformed but Close  Jan 31, 2008
I purchased this book and its companion "Handbook To Reformed Theology" as texts for the Seminary class I am teaching - Intro to Reformed Theology.
The things I like about it:
Organization - each chapter - excellent, solid breakdown of major headings, with a short easily accessible overview in non-technical language, followed by practical, immediate questions for discussion and meditation. It is easily supplemented by additional reading so that it can be used in a variety of settings - from the local church or para-church elementary studies to more advanced levels such as my course.

The things that are disappointing.
I would not characterize this book as "thoroughly" or "strongly" Reformed. McKim departs from Reformed emphases in several directions, all of which tend to diminish the force of its major tenets. His view of Scripture and Revelation allows for too much "progress" in man's understanding in a decidedly Barthian manner - i.e. pg. 21 - "In our time and in every time, God's message will come to us, through the words of human writers. God will continue to be revealed, to reach for us in love with the story of salvation in Jesus Christ..." etc. This is illustrative of the general tone of the work. His ecumenicalism falls fairly radically short of the traditional Calvinist insistence on the limits of the Gospel and is much closer to the so called "Emerging Church" movement than I am entirely comfortable with.

There are many who will see this as a breath of fresh air I suppose and I don't particularly wish to argue that. My main point is this - though McKim's ideas may be appealing, it is a blurring of categories to assign them the label "Reformed" in a strict sense. I give the book four stars - 3 in theology, 5 in organization. It's a good book to discuss because it brings the points of agreement and disagreement into clear definition. So, though I disagree with my brother on significant issues, yet I commend his contribution to the dialog.
Reformed Faith Easy to Understand  Nov 3, 2007
This is a great book to read and understand. It has been suggested to use it as a Sunday School lesson following up after teachings from the Mighty Acts of God by Arnold B. Rhodes revised by W. Eugene March.
