Product Description

In Christ-Centered Biblical Theology: Hermeneutical Foundations and Principles Graeme Goldsworthy argue that the appeal of biblical theology is that it provides a "big picture" that makes sense of the diversity of biblical literature. Through the lens of biblical theology the Bible ceases to be a mass of unconnected texts, but takes shape as a unified metanarrative connecting the story of Israel with that of Jesus. It presents the whole scene of God's revelation as one mighty plan of salvation.

For fifty years Graeme Goldsworthy has been refining his understanding of biblical theology through his experiences as a student, pastor and teacher. In this valuable complement to his Gospel-Centered Hermeneutics, Goldsworthy defends and refines the rationale for his approach, drawing especially on the work of Australian biblical scholar Donald Robinson.

The appeal of biblical theology is that it provides a "big picture" that makes sense of the diversity of biblical literature. Through the lens of biblical theology the Bible ceases to be a mass of unconnected texts, but takes shape as a unified metanarrative connecting the story of Israel with that of Jesus. It presents the whole scene of God's revelation as one mighty plan of salvation. For fifty years Graeme Goldsworthy has been refining his understanding of biblical theology through his experiences as a student, pastor and teacher. In this valuable complement to his Gospel-Centered Hermeneutics, Goldsworthy defends and refines the rationale for his approach, drawing especially on the work of Australian biblical scholar Donald Robinson.

Author Bio

Graeme Goldsworthy was formerly lecturer in Old Testament, biblical theology and hermeneutics at Moore Theological College, Sydney, where he still teaches part time. His other books include Gospel-Centered Hermeneutics, According to Plan, Preaching the Whole Bible as Christian Scripture, Prayer and the Knowledge of God, and three books on biblical studies collected as The Goldsworthy Trilogy.

Endorsements

Over the years readers have benefited from Goldsworthy's work in biblical theology. Now we have the mature and wise reflections of a veteran scholar on how to do biblical theology. I found this book to be edifying and stimulating. Even those who disagree with some dimensions of Goldsworthy's approach will find him to be a challenging conversation partner.
-Thomas R. Schreiner,
James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation,
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Graeme Goldsworthy's contribution to the study of biblical theology has been enormous. In this informative study, he helpfully compares different evangelical approaches, explaining his own preference for the method advocated by Donald Robinson. Supporting a 'three-stage structure of revelation' (biblical history from creation to Solomon, prophetic eschatology, fulfillment in Christ), Goldsworthy gives an interesting insight into those influences which have inspired and shaped his passion for defending and expounding the theological unity of the Bible. For anyone fascinated by biblical theology, and especially Goldsworthy's contribution to this field of study, the present volume is essential reading.
-T. Desmond Alexander,
Union Theological College, Belfast

For many years I have admired the good things coming out of Moore Theological College. It's high time that the biblical theology being done down under be put front and center in North America. In an age of increasing specialization and fragmentation where even biblical things come apart, Goldsworthy's approach to the unity of Scripture is an important countercultural blast.
-Kevin J. Vanhoozer,
Wheaton College Graduate School

Editorial Reviews

"I definitely enjoyed reading this book. It is well written and informative. I learned from it, and the book spurred my thinking. What's more I think it makes a number of important contributions, among them the promotion of a Christ-centered biblical theology among evangelicals. Christ-Centered Biblical Theology could be used for an introductory course on biblical theology or for personal study."

-- Joel Willitts, Bulletin for Biblical Research, 23.3

"Goldsworthy's book is a stimulating read. It forces the reader to reconsider basic interpretive assumptions. It will encourage people to pull Vos and Clowney off their shelves and reread their rich works."

-- Prof. J.V. Fesko, New Horizons, August-September 2013

"Once again, Goldsworthy has produced an important volume that contributes to a Christological understanding of biblical theology. Interestingly, Goldsworthy covers some issues and subjects not addressed in his previous writings. That alone makes this volume worthy, but the volume also serves as a helpful primer to biblical theology."

-- R. Albert Mohler Jr., Preaching, March/April 2013

"[Goldsworthy's] main point is one that needs to be heard throughout Christendom. In the blizzard of sermons and commentaries on short passages, it's easy to lose sight of the big picture. Goldsworthy restores that vision to his readers."

-- Caleb Nelson, World Magazine, February 2, 2013

" Christ-Centered Biblical Theology will help readers reflect deeply on the nature and structure of BT [Biblical Theology]."

-- Brent E. Parker, Credo Magazine, August 2012

"Over the years readers have benefited from Goldsworthy's work in biblical theology. Now we have the mature and wise reflections of a veteran scholar on how to do biblical theology. I found this book to be edifying and stimulating. Even those who disagree with some dimensions of Goldsworthy's approach will find him to be a challenging conversation partner."

-- Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Goldsworthy not only provides a solid commendation of the Robinson-Hebert scheme of BT but also gives guidance for how pastors and theologians can approach the biblical text with confidence that it has a unified story to tell."

-- Mark Turner, Criswell Theological Review, Fall 2013
