"Truly this was the Son of God!" —Matthew 27:54
Tracing the theme of divine sonship across the pages of Scripture, renowned biblical scholar Graeme Goldsworthy's The Son of God and the New Creation shows what Christ's fulfillment of the divine sonship motif means for all who are sons and daughters of God.
Not only does the author illuminate the unifying, redemptive-historical structure of the biblical witness from Genesis to Revelation, as well as the revelation of God and his kingdom that is contained within, but he also points to the heart of both—the person and work of Jesus of Nazareth. For it is Jesus as the Son of God who defines our salvation as part and parcel of the renewal of all things: the new heavens and the new earth.
Goldsworthy's exploration of the theme of divine sonship in The Son of God and the New Creation is a valuable contribution to the Short Studies in Biblical Theology Series, bridging the gap between that which is written for academic discussion and that which is written for the edification of the ordinary Christian.

"The widespread tendency to treat the Bible as if it has been dropped straight down from heaven into the hands of the individual believer significantly inhibits the life and hampers the mission of the church. This series of Short Studies in Biblical Theology holds important promise of helping to remedy this situation with its goal of providing pastors and their congregations with studies of key biblical themes that will foster a growing understanding and appreciation of the redemptive-historical flow and Christ-centered focus of Scripture as a whole. I look forward with anticipation to the appearance of these volumes."
—Richard B. Gaffin Jr., Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology, Emeritus, Westminster Theological Seminary
"At last, biblical theology made accessible to the wider church! Goldsworthy gets this much-needed new series of mercifully shorter books on biblical theology off to a wonderful start with an instructive and edifying exploration of the Son of God through the Scriptures. This book cannot but produce greater love of the Bible, greater worship of the Son, and greater anticipation of the new creation."
—David P. Murray, Professor of Old Testament, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary; pastor, Grand Rapids Free Reformed Church, Grand Rapids, Michigan; author, Jesus on Every Page and The Happy Christian
"Goldsworthy has devoted his lifetimes work to helping us understand the organic unity of the Bible. He has had a huge influence on my understanding of how the Old Testament anticipates Christ. I recommend this important work to all readers, particularly pastors and laypeople who want to see Christ in the Old Testament."
Tremper Longman III, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College
