Charles C Ryrie's book on Biblical doctrine is a solid introduction to Christianity It is very straight forward and understandable Ryrie always backs up his propositions with scripture and sometimes utilizes the testimony of the early church fathers Why however have I only given this book only 3 starsRyrie's ninth and final chapter on eschatology is difficult to read and doctrinally erroneous Ryrie subscribes wholeheartedly to a rapture theology This is my biggest issue with the book because it informs many of his other theological views throughout other chapters While Ryrie sees a scriptural basis for such a view authors such as N T Wright would disagree See Wright's Surprised by Hope for a fuller engagement on this topic
