Divinity & Religion Research: Systematic Theologies by Doctrinal Persuasion

Identifies key divinity and religion resources for Regent University students and researchers.

Systematic Theologies by Doctrinal Persuasion

This list of systematic theologies was originally based on a handout for Dr. J. Rodman Willliams' course in doctrinal theology at Regent University. The theologies were re-arranged by doctrinal persuasion and publishing information and Regent University Library call numbers were added. Entries without call numbers are not in the Regent University Library collection. New systematic theologies are added when this list is periodically updated.
