World Magazine's Book of the Year, Systematic Theology: An Introduction to Christian Belief by John Frame hit the top shelf. With many good reviews already, this one is for the shelf of every pastor, teacher, theological student and armchair theologian. See more below.
Systematic Theology is the culmination and creative synthesis of
John Frame's writing on, teaching about, and studying of the Word of
God. This magisterial opus—at once biblical, clear, cogent, readable,
accessible, and practical—summarizes the mature thought of one of the
most important and original Reformed theologians of the last hundred
years. It will enable you to see clearly how the Bible explains God's
great, sweeping plan for mankind.
"John M. Frame's Systematic Theology is a remarkable achievement. It is
simultaneously scholarly yet accessible, sweeping in scope but
penetrating in insight, steeped in historic orthodoxy yet fresh in
—Peter A. Lillback, President, Westminster Theological Seminary
"Systematic Theology . . . is a worthy climax to the life's work of one
who has only ever sought to be a faithful servant of Christ, teaching in
his church. It is a privilege to celebrate its appearing and to commend
it for serious study. I guarantee that the dividends of such study will
be uniformly high. Thank you, John Frame, for this superb gift."
—J. I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College
"This new systematic theology comes from one of the great theological
minds of our age. John Frame's contributions to theology are already
massive and many, but now he has given the church a systematic theology.
This is a very important book, and it represents a lifetime of
consecrated theological reflection. This new volume promises to be an
enduring contribution to evangelical theology."
—R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
Frame is one of my favorite theologians, and his Systematic Theology is
filled with the deep learning and warranted wisdom of a lifetime. I
commend it warmly to the Lord's people everywhere."

Frame has produced what should become required reading in seminary classrooms and pastors studies for years to come.
