9Marks says “biblical theology” is one of the marks of a healthy church. What’s meant by “biblical theology”?9Marks
The term “biblical theology” can be used in two ways:
This book is excellent, and should be read by every thoughtful and thoughtless pastor, so that they might better understand both the Word and their own role.
Read this book, and you’ll not only want to re-read it, you’ll want to re-read your Bible.
This book is worth having on your shelf for the primary reason that it will encourage you to preach Christ himself from the Old Testament.
In the end, I was perplexed by the book. There was plenty of thought-provoking material, but there was also a rather contrived view of postmodernism.
Preaching Christ from the Old Testament is an excellent resource that has yet to be replaced.
Book(s) Review: God’s Big Picture, Gospel & Kingdom, and According to Plan, by Vaughan Roberts and Graeme GoldsworthyReview by Nicholas Piotrowski | 03.05.2010
A one-stop review of three biblical theology classics.
There are a myriad of books on preaching, but Johnson believes that the Bible is finally the best guidebook for preaching the Bible.
Most pointedly, I don’t believe this book tenderly and clearly warns individual sinners of their peril or calls upon them to flee to Christ as the only remedy for their sin before God.
To be quite honest, I believe a comprehensive look at Baptist history would reveal plainly that Baptists historically have been largely a Calvinistic people.
This book is a fine and needed supplement to the many systematic and biblical theology books we already have on our shelves.
The kind of person who would perhaps benefit most from this book is the skeptic who is sympathetic to the claims of the Jesus Seminar and other similar scholars.
It’s not difficult to see why this book has stayed in print for so long.
Once you have read it, give it away. Give it away because a biblical answer to one of these excuses may be the catalyst for calling a wayward sheep home.
This book’s message that the whole Bible is not just messianic but also missional is a valuable reminder of Jesus’ great promise to all nations.
