A Biblical-Theological Introduction to the Old Testament: The Gospel Promised

  • Editor: Miles Van Pelt
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Pages: 608

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Featuring contributions from 13 respected evangelical scholars, this gospel-centered introduction to the Old Testament will help anyone who teaches or studies Scripture to better see the initial outworking of God’s plan to redeem the world through Jesus Christ. With this valuable overview, readers will learn how to view the Old Testament from a biblical-theological perspective. See the promises of God given in the Old Testament, promises that are kept in the New.

For expository preachers and teachers of the Bible, this is truly a gold mine. Present and past members of the Reformed Theological Seminary faculty have produced a volume that is long overdue. Sound biblical-theological treatments of each book of the Old Testament, linked with good historical and literary comments, all conclude by pointing to the fulfillment of the texts in the person and work of Jesus. With this volume, no preacher should ever feel that preaching Christ from the Old Testament is too hard or too speculative.

—Graeme Goldsworthy, former lecturer in Old Testament, biblical theology, and hermeneutics, Moore Theological College

For many Christians, the Old Testament is like a thousand pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Where do you start? It helps to look at the box top and see how it all fits together. That’s what these superb teachers of the church do in this insightful book.

—Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology, Westminster Seminary California; author, Core Christianity: Finding Yourself in God’s Story

In this volume, a number of capable biblical scholars faithfully explore the Old Testament writings with sensitivity and sensibility. They do an admirable job not simply in describing the main themes and theology of each book but also in artfully showing that the Old Testament has a covenantal framework, a kingdom perspective, and Christ at its center. In brief, this is a superb volume, which provides an understandable and informative overview of the Old Testament. A great antidote to an embarrassing ignorance of the Old Testament by Christians.

A Biblical-Theological Introduction to the New Testament: The Gospel Realized

  • Editor: Michael J. Kruger
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Pages: 656

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

This Introduction is written to help modern Christians read the New Testament from a biblical-theological perspective. Featuring contributions from nine respected evangelical scholars, this volume introduces each New Testament book in the context of the whole canon of Scripture, helping anyone who teaches or studies the Bible to apply it to the church today. Gain an appreciation for the theological richness of the New Testament in relation to the Old Testament’s history of Israel and the salvation-plan of God.

Seminary-level New Testament introductions are plentiful. But this one provides what others do not: a consistent hermeneutical orientation as articulated by a top-tier roster of nine different scholars associated with Reformed Theological Seminary throughout its history. In addition to chapters covering all the New Testament books, valuable appendices treat canon, text, the synoptic problem, and more. Addressing both spiritual and academic issues with a view to pastoral equipping and biblical exposition, this wide-ranging compendium will benefit readers in both classroom and personal settings.

—Robert W. Yarbrough, professor of New Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary

With the right mix of academic integrity and purposeful accessibility, this New Testament introduction will serve time-crunched pastors, ministry-minded students, and church members looking to better understand their Bibles. What makes this new volume unique is the emphasis on examining the theological themes in each book of the New Testament, rather than focusing on arcane debates prompted by liberal scholarship. The result is an insightful and impressive resource, one I will use in my own studies and often recommend to others.

—Kevin DeYoung, senior pastor, Christ Covenant Church, Matthews, NC

While introductions to the New Testament abound, this volume is a rare gem. It admirably combines depth of scholarship and theological exegesis within a biblical-theological framework—all couched in highly readable prose, offered for the sake of the church. It will no doubt instruct and edify. Well done.

—Constantine R. Campbell, associate professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
