I'm genuinely surprised to find no reviews for this excellent little volume. Geerhardus Vos was one of an exceptional group of talented reformed theologians which included Herman Bavinck, Abraham Kuyper, B. B. Warfield and J. Gresham Machen. They were instrumental in developing a reflective, scholarly theological discipline which flourished in places like Princeton Theological Seminary prior to the inrushing tide of liberal skepticism which devastated academia.

This book has been around since 1948, and provides an immensely helpful and remarkably compact overview of the development of the key theological themes as one works one's way through the Bible chronologically. It seems to me that there are too few reliable treatises which follow this approach - many prefer a systematic methodology which seeks to categorise truth, rather than observe it develop. One of the strengths of this book is the very clearly itemised Contents listing at the front, which gives you a quick breakdown of the topics covered in each chapter.

Those who want to understand the interaction between Old and New Testaments will find this a helpful contribution - I particularly enjoyed Vos' explanation of the Mosaic period.

Vos, is one of the forgotten giants of old Princton theology. This book is thorough, easy to follow, but still deep. His explanation on what "Biblical Theology" is, is very helpfull.

Very reasonably priced book. Clean volume - contents very good. This is the type of volume you would purchase and keep for the rest of your life.
