Here’s my challenge: if someone is interested in learning more about a particular topic, what is one (and only one) book or resource that I’d recommend?  Here are my answers.  Be patient with me as I build this section.  I can’t answer this question flippantly!

Systematic Theology: An Introduction to Biblical Doctrine, by Wayne Grudem

Biblical Theology
According to Plan: The Unfolding Revelation of God in the Bible, by Graeme Goldsworthy

Questions about Christianity

Are there any other topics that should be included in this list?
