Oh yeah… I can’t wait! If you have any of Beale’s other works — save his commentary on Revelation, but especially The Commentary on the New Testament Use of the Old — you know that this Biblical Theology is going to be good! It also will be a great complementary text to Jim Hamilton’s superb, God’s Glory in Salvation Through Judgment (Crossway).
In this comprehensive exposition, a leading New Testament scholar explores the unfolding theological unity of the entire Bible from the vantage point of the New Testament. G. K. Beale, coeditor of the award-winning Commentary on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament, examines how the New Testament storyline relates to and develops the Old Testament storyline. Beale argues that every major concept of the New Testament is a development of a concept from the Old and is to be understood as a facet of the inauguration of the latter-day new creation and kingdom. Offering extensive interaction between the two testaments, this volume helps readers see the unifying conceptual threads of the Old Testament and how those threads are woven together in Christ. This major work will be valued by students of the New Testament and pastors alike.
