...theology. Enns (2008) uses Chafer’s definition that emphasises the process of this theology. They define systematic theology as “the collecting, scientifically arranging, comparing, exhibiting and defending of all facts from any and every source concerning God and His works” (Enns, 2008, p.149). This definition is more focused on the scientific approach to theology, particularly the Bible. Webster (2009, p.56) agrees with this definition. He describes systematic theology as “an exercise of reason in the domain of God’s saving and revelatory goodness to creatures.” “Reason” is an important aspect...

...Theology After comprehensively going through the Harper Collins’ paperback, this paper comes to the conclusion that the publication is a mixed bag. The writing is undoubtedly excellent and the translation reliable. However, the volume notes appear to have been written by individuals who do not believe or have faith in God. For instance, this was especially clear in James and 1st Timothy, where the notion of prophecy as a visualization of the future is not even considered; even to quarrel against it (Meeks 1745). Hence, the reader is not granted the alternative of deciding the nature of the supernatural or miracles. Even though, I understand that this is a matter which people need to decide... Theology...

...theology, the term theodicy is used to mean the response to the evidential problem of evil. The term and the existence of its concept are thought to give reason of the existence of a God who is all-powerful and unstoppable in his ways (Young). He is also a God who will always care and give to his people without looking back. To look at an extraordinary evil in the world, we take an example of a mother who has money and lives with her friend’s children because her friend cannot afford their upkeep.

In the first passage, God is referred to as Elohim while in the second account he is referred to as Jehovah (McDermott 2003).
