Simple Book Review: "A Survey of Bible Doctrine" (1972) by Charles C. Ryles

A Survey of Bible Doctrine (1972) by Charles C. Ryles

Charles Caldwell Ryrie writes, “Does anyone ask me, What is the best safeguard against false doctrine? – I answer in one word, ‘The Bible: the Bible regularly read, regularly prayed over, regularly studied.’ We must go back to the old prescription of our Master: ‘Search the Scriptures.’ (John 5:39) If we want a weapon to wield against the devices of Satan, there is nothing like ‘the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God.’ But to wield it successfully, we must read it habitually, diligently, intelligently, and prayerfully. This is a point on which, I fear, many fail. In an age of hurry and bustle, few read their Bibles as much as they should. More books perhaps are read than ever, but less of the one Book which makes man wise unto salvation. Rome and neology could never have made such havoc in the Church in the last fifty years, if there had not been a most superficial knowledge of the Scriptures throughout the land. A Bible-reading laity is the strength of a Church.”

When I 'found' this book, actually it didn't have covers, so I made it myself. In this book, there are 9 chapters:

0)    Introduction: An Important Word to Begin With
1)    What is God Like?
2)    Is the Bible Inspired?
3)    Jesus Christ the Lord
4)    The Holy Spirit
5)    The World of Angels
6)    The Nature of Man
7)    Christ's Salvation
8)    What is the Church?
9)    What Does the Future Hold?
