Thomas Schreiner calls Gregory K. Beale’s forthcoming book, A New Testament Biblical Theology: The Unfolding of the Old Testament in the New his “magnum opus.”
Beale, author of two favorites of mine, We Become What We Worship: A Biblical Theology of Idolatry and The Temple and the Church’s Mission: A Biblical Theology of the Dwelling Place of God — as well as co-editor with D. A. Carson of Commentary on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament — has this new work hitting on December 1.
In his endorsement, Schreiner writes, “Certainly Beale has written his magnum opus, in which he deftly integrates the Scriptures via the new creation theme. The use of the Old Testament in the New Testament forms the backbone of this work so that readers grasp how the storyline of Scripture coheres. We stand in debt to the author for his detailed and profound unfolding of New Testament theology.”
Douglas Moo’s endorsement: “The canonical scope and focus on the biblical story line give Beale’s New Testament Biblical Theology a unique place among the many New Testament theologies now available. The book is vintage Beale, creatively making connections between Old Testament and New Testament and pursuing a definite vision of how the Bible hangs together.”
I can’t wait!
