Publisher's Description

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.

Author Bio

Thomas R. Schreiner (PhD, Fuller Theological Seminary) is James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. His numerous books include New Testament Theology and Romans in the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament.

Endorsements

A wonderfully clear and faithful account of biblical theology. This book is both intellectually compelling and honoring to God and so deserves to be widely read.
-Simon Gathercole,
senior lecturer in New Testament, University of Cambridge

From the garden of Eden to the garden of Paradise, Tom Schreiner deftly takes the reader through the entire narrative of the history of redemption. Giving attention to every part of the canonical Scriptures, Schreiner shows how the Bible coheres under the theme of the kingdom or rule of God. The payoff is a feast of theological, practical, and devotional insights. In a simple, direct, and nontechnical way, this book will bring Christians to a new understanding and appreciation of the entire Bible.
-Donald A. Hagner,
George Eldon Ladd Professor Emeritus of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary

Schreiner's one-volume biblical theology is a bountiful bonanza of biblical storytelling. In a time when biblical studies has become partitioned between the Hebrew Bible and the Greek New Testament, Schreiner reminds us that there is one God, one book, and one story. A story about God the king, his kingdom, his people, and the triumph of the Lord Jesus Christ. A nuanced and much-needed book to help Christians understand what the Bible is about and how it all hangs together.
-Michael F. Bird,
Crossway College, Brisbane, Australia

Having written major volumes on Pauline theology and New Testament theology, Tom Schreiner places a remarkable capstone on his work by tackling a biblical theology of the entire canon of Scripture. And he is up to the task, clearly and consistently tracing the theme of God as King and the ultimate triumph of the kingdom of God from Genesis through Revelation. Few volumes have dealt so comprehensively and so well with the grand narrative of Scripture from beginning to end.
-Mark L. Strauss,
professor of New Testament, Bethel Seminary San Diego

A book that wonderfully unites all the books of the Bible. Few authors have the command of learning, the gift of teaching, and the heart for God that this volume reflects. Digest this book to elevate your grasp of the Bible and to find your soul riveted like never before to the King in his beauty.
-Robert W. Yarbrough,
professor of New Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri

All preachers need biblical theology. The Apostle Paul could look at an audience and testify that he was innocent of their blood because he did not shrink from declaring the whole counsel of God to them (Acts 20:26). These words highlight our need for help in proclaiming the whole counsel of God because the stakes are so high. Tom Schreiner's book is pure gold in this regard, focusing on adoring the King in his beauty in all the Scriptures. I plan to wear out my copy as I look for help in this high-stakes calling.
-Jason C. Meyer,
pastor for preaching and vision, Bethlehem Baptist Church

    This book is a marvellous achievement! Dr. Schreiner is wise in his writing: covers with great skill the overall theme without stumbling in unnecessary details, but at the same time giving a careful attention to the important details. The style is dynamic, short and well-placed applications are present and the interaction with secondary literature is selected carefully to illuminate the reader! The style is accessible to every christian.

    This book proves at every page that the author has a warm heart for the King!

    Add also the exceptional quality of the book provided by Baker Academic! Highly recommended!
