As of March 2021, Bethany House, the former publisher of Norm Geisler’s 1-volume and 4-volume Systematic Theology, gave all rights back to the estate of Norman Geisler. We expect that Bastion Books will be the new publisher and that new editions should be available soon. We expect the one-volume edition to become available in August 2021 at the earliest and perhaps the 4-volume edition may become available in 2022.
Until the new versions are available, the best recommendation we can make is to order the four-volume set in the electronic Logos Bible Software format (for your computer) from here: https://www.logos.com/product/3598/systematic-theology. This version is very searchable and contains the full text of all four versions. High recommendations!

Order all four volumes in electronic Logos format for your computer here.
Systematic Theology, Vol 1: Introduction, Bible (Bethany, 2002)
As Dr. Norman Geisler explains and defends the essentials that make Christian belief possible–the preconditions–he lays a thorough foundation for Christian faith that will instruct theologians, pastors, and students for years to come.
Building on that foundation, Geisler’s bibliology, including the inspiration and authority of the Bible, has been called the most extensive defense of the consistent evangelical view of Holy Scripture available. – Bethany House
Geisler, Norman L.: Systematic Theology, Volume One: Introduction, Bible. Minneapolis, MN : Bethany House Publishers, 2002, S. 11
Systematic Theology, Vol 2: God, Creation (Bethany, 2003)
Dr. Norman Geisler clearly sets forth the reality of the existence of God: who He is. The author lays the foundation by explaining and describing the attributes and characteristics of God, among them His actuality and simplicity, life and immortality, unity and trinity. Dr. Geisler concludes this study by illustrating how we must respond to God’s attributes with heart, mind, and strength.
He then turns to what God does, or His activity: the creation of all things, the origin of spiritual creation, the sustenance of creation. The section culminates in a discussion of God’s relation to His creation. –Bethany House
Geisler, Norman L.: Systematic Theology, Volume Two: God, Creation. Minneapolis, MN : Bethany House Publishers, 2003, S. 9
In this volume, Dr. Norman Geisler examines the doctrines of sin and salvation. He begins with a discussion of human beings, covering the origin and nature of humanity. Next the elements of sin are studied, including sin’s origin, nature, effects, and, finally, defeat.
The second part continues with a thorough study of salvation, starting with salvation’s origin. This is followed by the theories of salvation, the nature of salvation, the evidence of salvation, and the assurance of salvation. He then examines the extent and exclusivity of salvation in regard to the theories of limited atonement, universalism, and pluralism, and the results of salvation in relation to infants and the heathen. Consideration of salvation’s condition and content close the study. – Bethany House
Geisler, Norman L.: Systematic Theology, Volume Three: Sin, Salvation. Minneapolis, MN : Bethany House Publishers, 2004, S. 9
In this volume, Dr. Norman Geisler explores the church and the last things, ecclesiology and eschatology. He begins with the church’s origin and then outlines its nature, government, and ordinances, addressing both the church universal and the church local while also examining spiritual gifts and the relation between church and state.
In part two’s remarkable presentation of time and eternity, Dr. Geisler expounds on the final resurrection, the intermediate and then final states of both the saved and the lost (heaven and hell), and the theories of purgatory and annihilationism. Then, turning specifically to biblical prophecy, he puts forth a basis for interpretational consistency before covering the Kingdom, the Covenants, the Second Coming, the Millennium, the Tribulation, and the Rapture. – Bethany House
