This week’s giveaway, Theology of the New Testament, has been praised by professors as an essential introductory text to the theological themes students will encounter from Matthew to Revelation.
“Frank Thielman’s Theology of the New Testament is an outstanding achievement. The book is marked by scholarly depth, exegetical rigor, and theological profundity. Both students and professors will profit immensely from this lucid treatment of the theology contained in the New Testament documents.” – Thomas Schreiner
“An accessible presentation of the key theological points of the New Testament books by an accomplished New Testament scholar and teacher. Its clear style, lucid organization, and sound theological insight make it a prime resource for serious students in both the academy and the church.” – Karen Jobes
Theology of the New Testament takes an approach which seeks to honor both the theological diversity of the various books and the theological connections between them.
Thielman presents his New Testament theology in a way that is careful to take into account the cultural and historical circumstances surrounding each book, and the New Testament as a whole. He examines each book’s theological content individually, as well as in relation to the rest of the New Testament, particularly within each of the three theological units that comprise the New Testament: the gospels and Acts, the Pauline epistles, and the general epistles and Revelation.
In the end, Thielman finds a unified theological vision of the New Testament, anchored in the centrality of Jesus Christ.
