"Snapshot of Systematic Theology" was built upon a single question from a church member. It is called "Snapshot" because in a single figure the entire spectrum of the Bible is seen. It traces that which God has chosen to reveal from creation to eternity. It is called "Systematic Theology" because it traces the Bible in both a logical and chronological sequence using ten major doctrines revealed in scripture using fourteen major topics. The book is designed to read like a novel using the initial figure for reference. It is useful as a commentary if one pay attention to the many scriptures quoted and then references them to the reading material. Finally, it may be used for research by everyone, from reading the additional reference material or by scholars familiar with the included Greek and Hebrew languages. My suggestions is to simply read and enjoy the material by refreshing old knowledge or learning something new, then agree or disagree with it, and save the research for later in depth studies. I suggest reading the book as you would a novel because that was the original intent of the book. Originally, the idea was to write a quality theological book with less than 100 pages. This idea eluded me because it did not seem scholarly to make statements without scriptural proof. As a result, this short project grew into one that lasted over two years. Therefore for those who want to just breeze through the book without looking into all the "whys and wherefores" feel guilt free to do so as that was the original intent of the book.
