In this comprehensive survey of key themes and emphases, Thomas Schreiner unfolds the riches of New Testament theology through the lens of salvation history
From the Back Cover
'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
'Thomas Schreiner is known for being a skilful 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
