Basic Theology (1986, 1999) is a Systematic Theology book written by Christian author Charles Caldwell Ryrie and published by Moody Publishers. Written for the layman, the book makes a conscious effort to use simple language and examples, many illustrations, and few footnotes
Basic Theology is written from a theologically conservative perspective. It assumes and gives evidence for a number of presuppositions, including the inerrancy of Scripture, a normal/plain interpretation of scripture, and the legitimacy of proof texts. Ryrie's theology stems from an objective approach to Scripture, arguing that "when objective authority is supplemented, compromised, or abandoned, theism will be weakened or even relinquished."
