Prolegomena


This definiton comes from (Theopedia.com) right here:

Prolegomena--Prolegomena simply means prefatory remarks. The Prolegomena of a Systematic Theology refers to the methodological questions generally found in the opening sections, dealing with the nature and task of theology and perhaps with the nature and focal point of revelation.

The purpose of these links is not to say that I agree entirely with every article, but instead to give the student of theology an idea of how he might approach the study of Theology or approach a systematic theology of the scriptures.
