Boyce’s Abstract of Systematic Theology

I’m reading James Petigru Boyce’s Abstract of Systematic Theology. Boyce was the founder and first president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. This Systematic theology is easily readable and at 534 pages in the print edition it isn’t overly long or complicated. I started reading a pdf version that is available at Wanting a quicker way to access the bible references I switched to using The Word bible study software for quicker bible reference look ups. The Word is free and can be customized in many ways for studying. I’ll include a screenshot of how I’m using it to read Boyce’s Abstract. If you look you can see how I have a popup open to read the reference. I also have a bible open to the left of the screen if I want to read further to see the context. I’m putting a second screenshot to show how it can be used with one of the more advanced predefined layouts. This allows me to have more than one bible open a dictionary, commentary, bible tree, and both bible and book searches. You can open even more in it plus it can be installed to run off a flash drive. Convenient if you need to be able to access it on more than one computer.

    No. It will not. Christian fundamentalism and crvteovasine evangelicalism have been defined as a form of religion from which all love has been drained away, leaving behind only a set of rules to be followed. It is a modern form of Old Testament legalism with a little pin-the-tale-on-the-donkey appendage that gives lip service to Jesus and his words in passing and getting passed him and them as quickly as possible. The true Christian faith will re-emerge only when people forget about the Old Covenant, with some minimal tip of the hat to Timothy, and look again to the New Testament and the red words of Jesus as the basis for faith and put back the love that has been replaced by hatred in organizations such as the Family Research Council. Any faith based on rules and hatred is doomed. This is why Christian fundamentalism and crvteovasine evangelicalism are doomed. This is why Islam is doomed. You may be sitting there all proud and puffed up in your megachurches and spreading yourselves like a green bay tree now but the road you are on now is the road to doom. Mark my word.
