Basic Christian Doctrine. Jesus will return visibly to earth - Acts 1:11. Christians will be raised from the dead when Jesus returns - 1 Thess. There is only one God - Isaiah 43:10; 44:6, 8; John 17:3; 1 Cor. 8:5-6; Gal. 4:8-9. There will be a rapture (being caught up into the clouds with Jesus) - 1 Thess.

In this thorough investigation of Calvinist doctrine, John Leith defines the Reformer's teaching on Christian life in the context of his theology. Leith's concluding statement summarizes the importance of this book. He begins with a discussion of what it means to say that the purpose of Christian life is the glory of God. He then discusses Christian life in relation to four aspects of Calvinist thought: justification by faith alone; providence and predestination; history and the transhistorical; church and society.

Based on his years of experience as a pastor and seminary professor, John Leith's Basic Christian Doctrine provides a brief but comprehensive statement of Christian faith for contemporary Christians. Leith draws from the theologians of the ancient church and affirms the faith of ancient creeds: the Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed, the Chalcedonian Definition and the Athanasian Creed. He asserts that we now live in a period of religious revival where Christian faith is persuasive--it is the gospel that heals the bruised consciences and wounded spirits of human beings.

If one is looking for a Reformed theology book that is very pastoral and compassionate in spirit then this book is it. Another bonus is that the book is easy to read so that lay people will find no trouble understanding what Leith is trying to say. In fact, this book can be a good resource for churches to use if they are doing a series on Bible doctrines. Leith deals with the standard topics of systematic theology (prolegomena to eschatology) in just over 300 pages. Thus, it is not a hefty systematic theology book. The overall perspective given is Reformed, though a bit of neo-orthodoxy can be found in bits and pieces (especially when Leith discusses theological method and bibliology). However, when one reads the sections on God, providence, Christ, the atonement, the Holy Spirit, election, justification, sanctification, and perseverance Leith is quite conservative and evangelical in his conclusions. I was also encouraged to see that Leith put a very high focus on Christ. Though there are some questionable points in Leith's theology his love for Christ and his concern for the church comes out quite clearly in the pages. I recommend this book for both seminary student and lay person.
