I have the hard copy of this and also used it while in college and seminary.  I really haven't touched it much in the past several years, so I may not pick it up.  Anyone else have this exprience with L&D?

How does this differ practically from a good SystematicTheology?

I value this work by Lewis and Demarest for the different approach (versus systematic) it has for the theological task.  There is a philosophical, apologetic, solve the problem, logic, verify.... flavor to the process.  From some notes I have from L & D on the six steps of Integrative Theology:

1). Identify the problem

2). Identify suggested solutions in history

3). Go behind history to Scripture

4). Order the revelation into doctrine

5). Defend doctrinal position, Lordship

6). Apply to life situation

In Wayne Grudem's Systematic Theology the author adds this footnote on p.22:

Gordon Lewis and Bruce Demarest have coined a new phrase "integrative theology" to refer to systematic theology in this broader sense: see their excellent three-volume work Integrative Theology (Grand Rapids:Zondervan, 1987-94). For each doctrine, they analyse historical alternatives and relevant biblical passages, give a coherent summary of the doctrine, answer philosophical objections, and give practical application.

I have this set- 3 volumes- it has been helpful, as with all theologies I use it along side others- at this price you can't go wrong- paid a lot more for dead tree versions.

Kindle resources are copy protected and there isnt a Faithlife/Amazon supported tool to import kindle books to Logos. (You can, however, send many Logos resources to an eInk kindle reader).

Logos does have a way to add non-faithlife resources to Logos. It is called the "personal book builder" tool. You "compile" microsoft word files (.docx) to create a book accessible within Logos. Are you familiar with the PBB tool?
