Comments New Testament Theology: Magnifying God in Christ

  • Mark

    Thomas Schreiner is becoming one of my new favorite theologians. He is one of the top Pauline scholars in many evangelical circles, yet he is very readable. One of the unique aspects of his New Testament Theology is that it is God-centered. Many Biblical-theological books take this central theme for granted, moving on quickly to the more controversal, technical issues. Schreiner, however, goes to great lengths to exposit the God-centeredness of the New Testament. To name a few other significant [...]

    Classic Schreiner scholasticism. I'm especially thankful for his emphasis on the NT as being the culmination of the OT and his holistic view of the entire canon. Also, even though this is not quite a page turner and clocks in at a pretty lengthy page number (around 900 excluding notes, bibliography, etc.), it's surprisingly readable and doesn't too often use language that the typical lay person (e.g.: me) could not understand. I originally was going to give this 4 stars, but relented after I tho [...]

    Excellent book! Tom Schreiner is a seasoned scholar which lends an evident depth to this volume. I would highly recommend this as a book to help grasp the overall contours and themes of the New Testament while at the same time setting the NT within the larger overall storyline of Scripture.Also read in June 2012.


  • Jonathan

    Good book that will help me much with weekly teaching and preaching. I feel like I have a more full and rounded understanding of the New Testament. If I were to read this book again though, I would space it out over a whole year.


  • Clayton Hutchins

    Good, but very long. It also had a repetitive feel, since he goes through the NT multiple times tracing a number of different themes. This also had the effect of making some topics feel rushed and somewhat cursory. However, Schreiner is solid and reliable, and ably tours the reader through the NT, giving you a good sense of its theology. His short summary and evaluation of different approaches to BT in the appendix was quite good as well.


  • James

    Probably the best single volume new testament theology. It's thematic arrangement I like less than a canonical approach, but he does an excellent job synthesizing major themes of the N.T. according to "distinctive" collections. I.e. Pauline, Synoptic, Johnannine, Hebrews, Revelation, etc Highly Recommended!


  • JR Snow

    Finally! The feast has been consumed! About 75% of this book was assigned to be read last semester for my Biblical Theology II class at RBC, but I read the rest on my own time and finished today. Solid work by Dr. Schreiner.


  • John

    Have it, want to read it, maybe will wait to take this class from Schreiner.


  • Joseph Pieri

    Very good for referencing NT themes and easy to read. Deals with many fundamental NT questions. Great work to have.


  • Jeffrey

    Tom Schreiner, though a Baptist, is a solid exegete and this volume will undoubtedly be very fruitful for my better appreciation of the NT.
