Every student of the New Testament must come to grips with the meaning and significance of the text. Arguing for a theology that is God-focused, Christ-centered, and Spirit-infused, Schreiner's careful exegesis focuses on two unifying themes---redemptive history and the ultimate goal of God's kingdom. Seminarians and pastors will appreciate this comprehensive, illuminating survey. 976 pages, hardcover from Baker.

Review 2 for New Testament Theology: Magnifying God in Christ

Gerlin Valencia, Ph.D.
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,
