$55.00

Hardback
Thomas Schreiner, a respected scholar and a trusted voice for many students and pastors, offers a substantial and accessibly written overview of the whole Bible. He traces the storyline of the scriptures from the standpoint of biblical theology, examining the overarching message that is conveyed throughout. Schreiner emphasizes three interrelated and unified themes that stand out in the biblical narrative: God as Lord, human beings as those who are made in God's image, and the land or place in which God's rule is exercised. The goal of God's kingdom is to see the king in his beauty and to be enraptured in his glory.

Accurate, Polished and Insightful
4 stars By Trevor Faggotter, May 01 2014
This is a rare, great, single volume, scholarly book on Biblical Theology. Thoughtful Christians will surely benefit from it much.  It is beautifully presented, and feels good with a nice hard cover, but no dusk jacket - for easy handling. 

Tom really achieves his aims. It is a well woven story-line under the theme of the King in His Beauty. He draws upon rich insights given by William Dumbrell regarding creation and covenant. Sin, Israel, failure, Christ, cross and redemption are clear. Often quoted are Brevard Childs (canon), Wenham, Schlatter, Beale, Gentry, Webb, Wellum and Von Rad. Indexes are great. Almost no Calvin, Luther, Edwards or Barth. 

I would like more emphasis on the Trinity, the Fatherhood of God, and especially service in the new creation - the telos beyond the arriving to see the King in his Beauty. 

In the Epilogue we read that "The grand narrative has ended". Oh? We began as Vice-regents in creation, but why not consider what it means to be the redeemed vice-regents, participants in the Divine nature?  Those invited to the banquet, shall enjoy co-serving, as co-heirs of the cosmos. In Isaiah, and Revelation Schreiner mentions it, but ends with being 'safe' in the heavenly city'. Great. Surely though, an adventure remains. 

Some more superlatives, and risky adjectives would help (USA's overused word "awesome" might help), but I know - the scholars might disapprove. Thanks Thomas.
