About the Author
WILLIAM G.T. SHEDD (1820–1894) was a professor at Union Theological Seminary in New York for twenty-eight years. An eminent theologian of his era, he wrote both doctrinal and pastoral works.
A classic from a leading Reformed theologian of the 1800s. The editor translated all foreign-language words and quotations, and wrote an introduction and glossary. The first edition was published by Charles Scribner’s Sons in two volumes in 1888; the second edition, in 1889. A third volume was added in 1894. All three volumes were reprinted by Zondervan in 1953, and by Thomas Nelson in 1980. “One of the largest and best systematic theologies.” —Curt Daniel (2003—of the 2nd edition) “[Ranks] second only to the works of Jonathan Edwards.” —Monica M. Grecu (1988—of the 2nd edition)
This is a truly excellent systematic theology. Unfortunately, the Kindle edition lacks page numbering. Since this book is most likely to be purchased for academic purposes, page numbering is absolutely critical. I had to buy the hard copy (which is pricey!) after already purchasing the Kindle edition. Amazon should indicate whether or not page numbering is available for this kind of book.
