Henry (1913-) was an influential evangelical of the mid-1900’s and professor of theology at Fuller Theological Seminary.  He was the editor for Christianity Today between 1956 and 1868.  His work is massive, philosophical and something of a bedrock in its field.

“Henry…  writes from a Reformed perspective as he interacts with many leading scholarly deviations from the faith in our time.” – Robert L. Reymond

Erickson, Millard

Christian Theology  Buy  1985, 1200 pages

Erickson was a professor of systematic theology at Bethel Theological seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota (1969-1991) and is moderately reformed.  His doctrine of Christ contains the error of kenosis, that upon the incarnation Christ ’emptied Himself’  of numerous of his divine attributes.  The orthodox doctrine is that the 2nd person in assuming a human nature remained fully God, being both God and man in two natures and one person forever.

“His systematic theology is very readable and informative.” – Robert L. Reymond

Nichols has been pastoring and teaching systematic theology for over three decades and now teaches for Reformed Baptist Seminary.  He resides in Michigan.

“…Nichols offers us a feast of biblical teaching on our creation and fall, and God’s common grace to sinners. This is sound, enlightening, convicting, humbling, and encouraging theology done with both eyes on the Word of God. Buy, read, and be edified by growing in knowing yourself and God.” – Joel Beeke
