A Guide to Systematic Theology Works

This handy guide will help identify systematic theologies by their doctrinal viewpoints.  No such  list is every totally accurate but can serve as a guide when trying to find specific information, weed collections, and otherwise help a potential church library customer.  A good rule of thumb to remember is the old adage, "all labels are libel."
