New Testament Theology: Magnifying God in Christ

ISBN: 9781441255013



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.

    The book itself is exceptional. Focuses largely on a Ladd-like understanding of inaugurated eschatology, and the reformation emphasis on glory of God. Like all Logos works, hyperlinked scripture texts are awesome. As are most other primary sources if one owns them (DSS, etc). However, note that many (most? All?) of the secondary works are not linked. Even if one owns them, the footnote citation doesn’t link to them. It doesn’t even link to an abbreviation glossary, or to the bibliography. Because Schreiner identifies each work only by last name and date, if one wants to even know what work is being cited, they must move to the bibliography and skim till they find it. (And even then, even if they own it, it may or may not be linked to in the bibliography) dictionary articles seem to be usually, commentaries always are. Many monographs and other works are not. The ability to glance at a work cited in a footnote, and to open that work directly if one chooses, is the most valuable part of reading a work on Logos imho. So buyer beware that this normally amazing feature of logos works seems to be rather limited in this work for some reason.
