I have read it through at least 2 times over the course of Bible School and Seminary. At the time, I found it basic and boring. Since then, I have come to appreciate aspects of Ryrie that are absent in a lot of others in his tradition. That said, there are some substantive deficiencies in his theology and this text.
It is very basic, dispensational, Amyraldian and baptistic. He's a mixed bag between rightly humble at some points and too d This was the first "formal" text that I read on theology. He's a mixed bag between rightly humble at some points and too dogmatic to the point of silliness in other areas He's a first generation heir of fundamentalism that bridged the gap for contemporary yet classical dispensationalists from Chafer to Couch.
On some levels, I really respect the guy - at other levels though, I have a very hard time taking him seriously. All that said, I would never discredit what he has to say. First, despite his weaknesses in theology and theological method, he is a man who has implanted God's word deeply into his mind and his heart. Second, despite his accessible communication style, he has done his homework And that is kind of the part that maybe bothers me the most - he still draws goofy conclusions.
Third, regardless of what people say, he has had a lot of sway on contemporary American theology. Most mainstream evangelicals, most premillennialist, most non-calvinistic or moderately calvinistic baptists, most readers of the Left Behind Series ARE the theological step children of Ryrie in one way or another whether they like it or not!
And for these reasons and many others, he is worth at least referencing from time to time. Basic Theology by Charles C. Ryrie is a very impressive and compelling study on the basic doctrines of Theology. Ryrie, a highly acclaimed theologian, presented these basic doctrines in a bold and methodical approach. With his unique ability to unravel complicated biblical teaching, he presents all of the basic doctrines in an uncomplicated manner.

Written in a mostly non-technical, conversational style, his approach toward all of the basic doctrines of theology; namely, God, Christ, Holy Spirit, Church, Salvation, etc. This book is an excellent study for pastors and for those who want to know more on the basic doctrines of Theology.
This book is also a tremendous help and source of material for the Sunday school teacher. It is also suitable for use as a textbook in Bible Colleges and Institutes. This book is a good read! Sep 19, Greg Dill rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. I am very humbled and yet glad that I have taken the time to read this wonderful book written by Dr. Although I did not agree with every point he made in this book, I found it to be completely referenced with Scripture rather than just pure conjecture like many Dispensationalists have a tendency to do in relation to some items of theology, namely eschatology.
I have learned a great deal from this book, many things that I did not know. I particularly liked how Dr. Ryrie systematically laid I am very humbled and yet glad that I have taken the time to read this wonderful book written by Dr. Ryrie systematically laid out everything in great detail.
In fact, there was hardly any material covered in this book that I had further questions on. I did however have one particular question relating to baptism that Dr. Ryrie discussed. Thanks be to God I was able to contact Dr. Ryrie directly via Facebook and was given a reasonable response to my question. The one thing that this book did for me was to help open my eyes to the deeper mysteries of God… His awesome wonders and workings, and His perfect order of things. I particularly enjoyed the sections of this book in its description of angels, demons, and the spiritual world.
I also enjoyed his systematic review of all views concerning the timing of the Rapture and the events surrounding the end times. This book has actually deepened my faith a bit. It has shown me how such a mighty, powerful, and sovereign God can truly care about each of us on an individual level in an intimate way. It amazes me how a God can become a man on earth just so He can die on a cross for us. God cannot die, but a man can. And that is precisely what was done in the Incarnation of Jesus Christ.
God is indeed a God of love. Aug 15, Clark Goble rated it it was amazing. Charles Ryrie has become one my favorite theologians to read due to his unique ability to present complicated, theological concepts in an accessible and Biblical manner. Ryrie writes from a dispensational vantage point in an incredibly balanced manner and should be required reading for those who enjoy poking fun at the expense of dispensational writers like Tim LeHaye and Jerry Jenkins.
In Basic Theology: A Systemat Charles Ryrie has become one my favorite theologians to read due to his unique ability to present complicated, theological concepts in an accessible and Biblical manner. When reading this book, I was left with the impression that Ryrie is far more concerned with loyalty to the Word than in defending his own pet presuppositions. This book is a great reference text and should be placed within easy reach on the desk of all pastors, teachers, and theologians.

When I was 15, I completed my first journey through this text and left with an indelible impression of the depth and breadth of the teachings of Scripture.
Ryrie's simple and witty presentation allows the reader to become immersed in the text and to follow his train of thought well. The arguments are well articulated and the theology is decidedly conservative. Ryrie's style in this volume is No book outside the Bible itself has done more to shape my thinking that that of Ryrie's Basic Theology.
Ryrie's style in this volume is complexity addressed with brevity. In other words, though the topics are complex and deep, Ryrie adequately covers them all in a fashion that avoids unnecessary banter yet leaves the reader awkwardly satisfied.
