Publisher's Description

In this substantial volume, Thomas Schreiner takes up the study of New Testament theology, looking for the themes that emerge from a detailed reading of the whole rather than considering the individual writings separately.

Two themes in particular emerge. The first concerns redemptive history and the kingdom of God. The New Testament writers adopt the Old Testament vision of God's reign and affirm that it has come in Jesus Christ, although final fulfillment is yet to come. Second, the ultimate goal of the kingdom is God's glory. Schreiner goes on to relate these themes to the life of the believer and the community of faith.

Pastors and students will find this a comprehensive and illuminating survey of the unifying themes found throughout the New Testament.

Author Bio

Thomas R. Schreiner (PhD, Fuller Theological Seminary) is the James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is the author or editor of numerous books, including Paul, Apostle of God's Glory in Christ: A Pauline Theology and Romans in the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series.


"Thomas Schreiner is known for being a skillful and careful New Testament scholar. In his New Testament Theology his abilities and his clear, concise style are on full display as he gives us a synthetic account of this complex subject, an account that reflects his high view of Scripture. This is probably the best New Testament theology written in the last several decades from a decidedly Reformed and evangelical point of view. While I disagree with the analysis at various points, it is still a fine piece of work, and I am happy to commend it." -Ben Witherington III, professor of New Testament, Asbury Theological Seminary

"Schreiner's New Testament Theology has long been awaited by colleagues, friends, and students. The appendix, which provides a helpful survey of the discipline of New Testament theology, and the discussion of justification, which contains a summary of the modern debate and a defense of a forensic interpretation of the Pauline teaching, are alone worth the price of the book." -Robert H. Stein, senior professor of New Testament interpretation, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Tom Schreiner's New Testament Theology is a valuable addition to the field, providing to students the kind of overview that only a seasoned scholar can produce. The volume is particularly significant for taking a more thematic approach than have most other New Testament theologies. Schreiner therefore comes closer than most others to giving us a genuine New Testament 'theology' (rather than New Testament 'theologies')." -Douglas J. Moo, Blanchard Professor of New Testament, Wheaton College

"Lucid, incisive, and above all devoted to listening to the text of the New Testament, Tom Schreiner's volume is like a cool drink in a postmodern desert. Schreiner unfolds the richness of New Testament theology through the lens of salvation history, showing how fruitful the promise-fulfillment, already-not yet paradigm is for understanding the New Testament. If you want a New Testament theology that is informed, exegetically grounded, canonically based, Trinitarian, and written from the standpoint of a sturdy faith, then this is the book for you!" -Donald A. Hagner, George Eldon Ladd Professor Emeritus of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary

"Scholars frequently focus so tightly on the details of the New Testament documents that they miss the big picture. On the other hand, all too often attempts to summarize the message of the New Testament ignore the particular expressions and diverse emphases of its twenty-seven books. Without losing the trees for the wood, Schreiner's New Testament Theology offers a superb exposition of the New Testament's central message, the glory of God in Christ. Pastors and students will find it an invaluable resource for answering the question most readers are asking: what is the New Testament about?" -Brian S. Rosner, senior lecturer in New Testament and ethics, Moore Theological College

"A magnificent achievement! Schreiner has combined the breadth and depth of his knowledge of the New Testament with extensive discussion of the scholarly literature. Best of all, it follows the New Testament in testifying to the majesty and glory of God." -Simon J. Gathercole, lecturer in New Testament studies, University of Cambridge

Author Bio

Thomas R. Schreiner is professor of New Testament interpretation at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and the author of Romans in the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament.

Publisher Description

While no single New Testament document claims to offer a comprehensive theology, Thomas Schreiner suggests that certain recurring themes emerge from the study of the whole. In this volume, he traces key themes as they appear throughout the New Testament canon, exploring the emphases that emerge from a detailed reading of the texts.

Schreiner's approach is based on solid exegesis of all the key texts and leads him to a unified view of core New Testament teaching. He focuses particularly on two overarching themes. The first concerns the unity of redemptive history and the kingdom of God. The New Testament takes up Old Testament imagery and affirms that the kingdom has come (although it remains unfulfilled) in Jesus Christ. The second related theme concerns the goal of the kingdom--the glory of God through the work of Christ and the empowering presence of the Spirit. In the second half of the work, Schreiner takes up the question of what these themes mean for the life of the believer and the ministry of the community of faith.

Although this substantial and comprehensive volume will be of great interest to scholars, Schreiner's first concern is to provide an accessible guide for students and pastors. He has succeeded admirably, and readers will find here a lucid exposition of the theology of the New Testament.

    Thomas Schreiner's latest book, New Testament Theology, despite its size, will prove to be quite informative, learned, and theologically sound. Though Schreiner's approach may not be as helpful to some readers in their desire to ascertain an in-depth reading on any particular text of the Bible, the reader is bound to enjoy his work and to appreciate his effort in bringing the biblical text to the understanding of both students and lay people in the pews. In this regard, then, Schreiner's efforts are commendable for he has seen the need for the average individual believer and non-believer for that matter, to understand the simple message of salvation that Jesus Christ brought via his life, death, and resurrection. His work is evangelistic, simple to understand, as well as biblically informed.This will prove to be a remarkable addition to the scholarship of the New Testament in the twenty-first century. The reader can be confident that in Schreiner, one can find one of the most humble and honest New Testament scholars to-date. Go ahead and read the book, the end result of your reading will be, a better appreciation for the mystery of salvation in Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God.Best Wishes,
