Paperback

This book represents excellent value, combining three Goldsworthy classics (all now Out-of-Print separately) in one volume: Gospel and Kingdom (ISBN 085 364 6082), Gospel and Wisdom (ISBN 085 364 6511), and The Gospel in Revelation (ISBN 085 364 6309). Combined, these books provide an excellent model for understanding the Christian interpretation of Scripture, both Old and New Testaments. Gospel and Kingdom is concerned with finding the gospel principles inherent in the Pentateuch and historical books of the Old Testament; Gospel and Wisdom applies the same objective with regard to the Wisdom literature of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Job. The Gospel in Revelation demystifies the notoriously difficult Apocalypse by reference to the gospel theme uniting the startling visions. From Paternoster.

Combining three incredibly important books for the teaching of the Church, "The Goldsworthy Trilogy" offers a complete and comprehensive guide to understanding the gospel throughout the whole of Scripture. Hugely popular, this collection is being released in this special format and will be an essential guide to be used again and again for those who seek to understand the Bible in the light of who Jesus is. ^ Straightforward in his approach, Goldsworthy looks at how the Bible can only be understood through the eyes of the gospel. This being the base of his interpretation, he studies the Old Testament and its application for today, Israels wisdom literature and its role in the Christian life and the purpose and contemporary relevance of the book of Revelation. This trilogy follows the Bible chronologically to give the reader a complete overview of evangelical biblical interpretation forming an essential onestop reference that will last a lifetime.

Every Christian Should Read This Book
5 stars By Andrew, Dec 29 2015
Most people who have read this book would count it within the ten most influential books of their spiritual growth. Goldsworthy demonstrates with great clarity how Jesus' claim of that all the Scriptures, including the Old Testament Scriptures that were written before he was born, are really about Him and pointing to him. This Christocentric view of Scripture is the key that unlocks sound theology...as opposed to the tendency to draw moral lessons from the myriad of flawed OT characters. If you really want to know how to read the Bible this is the book for you.

Essential Biblical Theology
5 stars By Dan, Dec 23 2013
If you've never heard of Biblical Theology, then you need to!  Gospel and Kingdom, one of the 3 books in this combo, is one of the best explanations of Biblical Theology there is, or how the Bible fits together as a whole.  Goldsworthy explains well how the Bible, especially the Old Testament, is not a random conglomoration of stories with moral lessons, but rather a unified theological history of how God has interacted with us and revealed his salvation plan.  Goldsworthy also has a similar book set at a slighly lower level called "According to Plan", but really I'm sure this book would be fine for anyone ready to investigate Biblical Theology.  
An understanding of how the Bible fits together and how to read it as a unified book is something all Christians need to grasp, and so this book, or one like it, is essential for all who follow Jesus, the fulfillment of God's entire salvation plan (and so cheap!)

Value for money!
5 stars By Raj, Nov 30 2013
This particular prints actually does contain the full text of all 3 titles that were previously only available separately, and at about 16.99 EACH! It doesn't shrink the text and paper thickness to unbearable to achieve this as well. Sweet!

The title itself contains very enlightening concepts about the nature of God in respect to His creation and the overall idea of 'kingdom' through a sweeping review of the bible from beginning to end. It's written in a way that it doesn't skimp over depth, but is simple to grasp so it doesn't compromise there either. I hear it's a text book for many theology courses? Either way, check it out for some quality reading!

A great overview
5 stars By Liz P, Nov 02 2012
Gospel and Kingdom is one of the books I need to read for the course I am currently studying - Introduction to the Bible (as part of the Preliminary Theological Certificate at Moore College).  I did enjoy reading it and had been meaning to for years - we've had it for probably twelve years now, I think.  It is the fourth book I've read as part of my challenge to read 20 books this year.

Gospel and Kingdom begins with a preacher about to give a children's talk and frustrated with the way he is going to present the Old Testament narrative.  Surely the story is more important than a simple moral lesson?

Goldsworthy then brings forward the proposition that we should read, and value, the Old Testament.  The book provides ample evidence of the message of the Gospel throughout the Old Testament, as well as plenty of other compelling reasons to not ignore the larger portion of the Bible.
