    Hello and welcome to CF. :)

    The answer is going to vary depending on one's theological biases. I can tell you that the second and third have good reputations in their particular circles, but I suspect may not agree with one another. The first I'm not familiar with.

    If I were answering the question, I would point people back to early Church sources. But not everyone would agree with me I suppose, and there are those you actually have to be careful of in some of their writings.

    Again, welcome to CF. :)

    The second one was what I had for a class in Vanguard University and the book was a good overview. That being said Anastasa is right you should study the Fathers and the early Church if you really want great Theology.

    Understand first, that anything you read other than the Bible itself is a commentary on the Bible, they are all mans thinking and beliefs as to what the Bible says, you would be way better off to save your money and give it to some homeless guy, than to fill your head with the beliefs of someone else.

    You need to know, that whatever you read concerning the Bible will be in your head, and it could literally take you years to get it out of your head if you some day decide you don't want it there any longer.

    All extra Biblical books of any kind, are not necessary, the Holy Spirit is your Private Tutor, He will lead you into all Righteousness, and He will do it in such a manner that what He teaches you will actually be the next step in your journey with the Lord.
