Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Thomas Schreiner's substantial New Testament Theology examined the unifying themes that emerge from a detailed reading of the New Testament canon. Magnifying God in Christ provides a student-level digest of Schreiner's massive work, exploring the key themes and teachings of the New Testament in a more accessible and concise way. In addition to summarizing the findings of Schreiner's larger work, this survey provides answers to the "so what?" question of New Testament theology.

Praise for New Testament Theology

"A magnificent achievement! Schreiner has combined the breadth and depth of his knowledge of the New Testament with extensive discussion of the scholarly literature. Best of all, it follows the New Testament in testifying to the majesty and glory of God."--Simon J. Gathercole, University of Cambridge

"Lucid, incisive, and above all devoted to listening to the text of the New Testament, Tom Schreiner's volume is like a cool drink in a postmodern desert. If you want a New Testament theology that is informed, exegetically grounded, canonically based, trinitarian, and written from the standpoint of a sturdy faith, then this is the book for you!"--Donald A. Hagner, Fuller Theological Seminary

"Thomas Schreiner is known for being a skillful and careful New Testament scholar. In his New Testament Theology his abilities and his clear, concise style are on full display as he gives us a synthetic account of this complex subject, an account that reflects his high view of Scripture. This is probably the best New Testament theology written in the last several decades from a decidedly Reformed and evangelical point of view."--Ben Witherington III, Asbury Theological Seminary

"[Schreiner's] overall treatment of New Testament theology offers an excellent exposition of the New Testament's central message, the glory of God in Christ. This book is especially significant for taking a more thematic approach than most other New Testament theologies. The appendix and the helpful and full bibliography will give students an outstanding source for further study and research in the area and themes of New Testament theology. Students and scholars are in the author's debt for providing a very helpful tool that will prove its value."--Panayotis Coutsoumpos, Review of Biblical Literature

Format: Paperback
In 2008, Thomas Schreiner published New Testament Theology, a comprehensive analysis of the theological message of the New Testament. For this volume, Schreiner has pared down that larger work in an attempt to make his central message more palatable to a broad audience. Though both are aimed at pastors and students, this volume is designed to appeal to those wanting to work through a book with a less daunting page count.

For this abbreviated edition, Schreiner explains that he has "eliminated virtually all footnotes" and points readers to his "larger work for more in-depth discussion" (9). Consequently, for many potential readers, this volume will relegate Schreiner's New Testament Theology to the reference shelf.

In comparing the two works, Schreiner has essentially reversed the order of his title and subtitle, highlighting more directly his thesis about the theology of the New Testament. Schreiner parses "magnifying God in Christ" by stating that "NT theology is God-focused, Christ-centered, and Spirit-saturated" (19). His work seeks to expose "the centrality of God in Christ in the concrete and specific witness of the NT as it unfolds God's saving work in history" (19).

In other words, Schreiner argues that the thrust of the New Testament demonstrates that "God will receive all the glory for his work in Christ by the Spirit as he works out his purpose in redemptive history" (19). His goal is to demonstrate this reality inductively at the level of the individual books as well as on the level of the whole of the New Testament.

Those who own Schreiner's previous volume will not need to obtain this one, as it is functionally an abridgement of that work.

This book gives a holistic view of the Christian faith. Schreiner systematically explains the faith in a tangible and easily understandable way. Every Christian should read this book.

What a great author. The way he words things is really unique. I find I can only read a few pages at a time, then I have to sit and think about it and digest what he wrote before I can read further. I like to highlight what I think is important. I'm doing a lot of highlighting!

I won't do one of those reviews where I re-articulate the whole premise of the book. I will say this, apart from the bible no other book has had the effect on me that this book has in the last 2-3 years. The clarity in this book is contagious as he explains things that help you think deeply about other things that all begin to make sense. That's why I love this book! It's content is fantastic! It also helps me to think about other things and make connections in ways I hadn't thought before. Get it! Read it!! Love it!!!
