Product Description

The massive diversity and complexity of the Bible can make it a daunting project for anyone to tackle. Getting a grasp on the unity of the Bible, its central message from Genesis to Revelation, helps immensely in understanding the meaning of any one book or passage. That is the goal of this introductory text. How do the Old and New Testament fit together? What is the point of biblical theology? What is the overall story of the Bible? What difference does it make? This introductory text answers these questions with an integrated theology of both Old and New Testaments that avoids unnecessary technicalities. Dozens of charts, highlighted summaries, study questions at the end of each chapter and concise, pity chapters make this an enormously useful book for understanding how the Bible fits together as the unfolding story of God's plan for salvation.

    I was alerted to this book after reading Graeme Goldsworthy's smaller work, "Gospel and Kingdom." Never have I come across an author who lays out the comprehensive story of the Bible in such a clear and concise manner. Beginning with Genesis and walking his reader through Revelation, the author demonstrates how the biblical narrative finds its ultimate meaning and purpose in the Person of Jesus Christ. Although holding a very high view of Scripture, he cautions that not all biblical passages are to be applied equally, because to do so invites serious interpretive error. What that means is that earlier revelation is more clearly understood in the light of later revelation. Goldsworthy does a masterful job of showing both the unity and the diversity of the biblical text. His last two chapters, "Knowing God's Will" and "Life After Death" provide helpful "hands-on" learning opportunities for students who are willing to dig deep and consider the principles of biblical theology he proposes. I was greatly impressed with how the author covers much biblical territory without appearing to "skim" or being unnecessarily verbose. After reading "According to Plan" and "Gospel and Kingdom," I am likely to get into another Graeme Goldsworthy book soon. I would recommend this work for clergy and laity alike, anyone with a yearning to see the "big picture" of the Bible more clearly.

    If you enjoy Mr. Goldsworthy's book Gospel and the Kingdom, you will love this book. It is much more organized and thorough. It is probably my third favorite book on the subject of the Kingdom behind Announcing the Kingdom and God's Big Picture. The biggest disappointment of this book is Mr. Goldsworthy's assertions (assertions because if Scripture might imply a truth we have not right then to assert it) concerning Christ being the New Israel and, thus, reading a "spiritual" reality into every promise of God following Christ. Up to that point it was an excellent book, but Mr. Goldsworthy's presuppositions force him to interpret scripture without foundation. A good book and a must read if one is very interested in other viewpoints on the Kingdom.

    Graeme Goldsworthy is an expert on the Old Testament and of biblical theology as a whole. He displays this beautifully in this work, According to Plan. The purpose of the book is to help people to understand the grand history of redemption as it is presented from Genesis to Revelation. This includes the consistent themes of creation, covenant, temple, exile, Messiah, and exodus. He presents these themes as they are unfolded chronologically in Scripture, keeping with progressive revelation. This is ideal for new believers who are seeking to understand the Bible as a whole to see how the things of redemptive history fit together. There are study questions included after each chapter for group use. There may be no better introduction to biblical theology than that of Goldsworthy.

    A well written book. Very helpful for those who have never verntured into this things called biblical theology, as well as for those of us who think we know more looking for a slightly different perspective. Well worth the read.
