Overview

Thomas Schreiner, a respected scholar and 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.

  • Comprehensive overview of the Bible
  • Tracks overarching messages that occur throughout the Bible
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.

    Given Schreiner’s reputation as a New Testament commentator and scholar, this work is very disappointing. Everything in the Old Testament is filtered through the lens of Reformed systematic theology, with no respect for the meaning of the text in its Old Testament setting. Admittedly, attempting a “Biblical theology of the Old and New Testaments” (as the subtitle says) is a mammoth undertaking and one that cannot cover all bases. But surely the most fundamental requirement is to start with the OT texts in their original settings, before one can attempt to build a theology on them. By omitting this basic step, this book is reduced to reading Christian theological perspectives (and that from one particular stream) back into the OT. For example, Schreiner can refer to Moses as “the destroyer of Egypt” (p.29). That statement reveals the writer’s lack of interest in history, not to mention the theological misrepresentation of who God is and what he is doing in revealing himself to Pharaoh (as a theme of Exodus).
