Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"Scholars frequently focus so tightly on the details of the New Testament documents that they miss the big picture. On the other hand, all too often attempts to summarize the message of the New Testament ignore the particular expressions and diverse emphases of its twenty-seven books. Without losing the trees for the wood, Schreiner's New Testament Theology offers a superb exposition of the New Testament's central message, the glory of God in Christ. Pastors and students will find it an invaluable resource for answering the question most readers are asking: what is the New Testament about?"--Brian S. Rosner, senior lecturer in New Testament and ethics, Moore Theological College

"Schreiner's New Testament Theology has long been awaited by colleagues, friends, and students. The appendix, which provides a helpful survey of the discipline of New Testament theology, and the discussion of justification, which contains a summary of the modern debate and a defense of a forensic interpretation of the Pauline teaching, are alone worth the price of the book."--Robert H. Stein, senior professor of New Testament interpretation, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

In New Testament Theology, Thomas Schreiner's approach is based on solid exegesis of all the key texts, which leads him to a unified view of core New Testament teaching. He focuses particularly on two overarching themes. The first concerns the unity of redemptive history and the kingdom of God. The New Testament takes up Old Testament imagery and affirms that the kingdom has come (although it remains unfulfilled) in Jesus Christ. The second related theme concerns the goal of the kingdom--the glory of God through the work of Christ and the empowering presence of the Spirit. In the second half of the work, Schreiner takes up the question of what these themes mean for the life of the believer and the ministry of the community of faith.

Although this substantial and comprehensive volume will be of great interest to scholars, Schreiner's first concern is to provide an accessible guide for students and pastors. He has succeeded admirably, and readers will find here a lucid exposition of the theology of the New Testament.

From the Back Cover

While none of the New Testament documents claims to provide a "theology" on its own, Thomas Schreiner suggests that certain recurring themes emerge from the study of the whole. In this volume, he traces key themes as they appear throughout the New Testament canon, exploring the emphases that emerge from a detailed reading of the texts.

"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. Schreiner unfolds the richness of New Testament theology through the lens of salvation history, showing how fruitful the promise-fulfillment, already-not yet paradigm is for understanding the New Testament. 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, George Eldon Ladd Professor Emeritus of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary

"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, lecturer in New Testament studies, University of Cambridge

"Tom Schreiner's New Testament Theology is a valuable addition to the field, providing to students the kind of overview that only a seasoned scholar can produce. The volume is particularly significant for taking a more thematic approach than have most other New Testament theologies. Schreiner therefore comes closer than most others to giving us a genuine New Testament 'theology' (rather than New Testament 'theologies')."--Douglas J. Moo, Blanchard Professor of New Testament, Wheaton College

"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. While I disagree with the analysis at various points, it is still a fine piece of work, and I am happy to commend it."--Ben Witherington III, professor of New Testament, Asbury Theological Seminary

Format: Hardcover
This is certainly the newest and perhaps most comprehensive New Testament theology to come from the conservative/Evangelical camp. Other recent volumes include those by Achtemeier, Green and Thompson, (Introducing the New Testament, 2001); Marshall (New Testament Theology, 2004); and Thielman (Theology of the New Testament, 2005).

Older but still helpful volumes include those by Ladd (1974); Hasel (1978); Guthrie (1981); Morris (1986); and Caird and Hurst (1994). Of all these volumes, Schreiner's is certainly the most extensive, reaching nearly 1,000 pages.

Most NT theologies approach the task in a book by book examination. Some take a more topical/thematic approach. Schreiner combines the best of both worlds. He looks at major NT themes, such as God, the Kingdom, Christology, sin, salvation, eschatology, and so on, but does so by focusing on main author clusters, such as the Synoptics, or Luke-Acts, or Paul, or John, etc.

Thus all the main themes of the NT are capably dealt with, but the canonical structure to the NT is not lost. As to the centre of NT theology, Schreiner states his view in the opening lines: "NT theology is God-focused, Christ-centered, and Spirit-saturated, but the work of the Father, Son, and Spirit must be understood along a salvation-historical timeline; that is, God's promises are already fulfilled but not yet consummated in Christ Jesus" Indeed, the subtitle of this book is Magnifying God in Christ.

Schreiner is of course a leading NT scholar, and relatively youngish (54).

Format: Hardcover
Schreiner's NT Theology is simply excellent. He takes a thematic approach with God magnifying himself in Christ through the Spirit as the center of the NT. I found the thematic approach particularly helpful. Thielman is also a great resource, but the book by book approach reads more like a NT Intro text. Themes that were especially clear and helpful were Schreiner's work on righteousness, already/not yet (Part 1), Christology (most of the book), faith and obedience, and the Law in salvation history. I've only read chunks of Ladd, but if I could own only one NT theology, Schreiner's is the one I'd want to have.

We used this work in my course work for my masters in theology, and I found it to be a very thorough and readable treatment of New Testament theology. This volume is very well researched and it strikes a good balance somewhere between the novice student and academic scholar.

Dr. Schreiner is one of the greatest living NT scholars. He is also a very, very humble and godly man. He is, without a doubt my favorite professor from my seminary days. His thematically approach towards this commentary in my mind, makes it easier to read, and connect separated, but cohesive pieces together. Dr. Schreiner is genuine, brilliant, pastoral, and graceful. All of which and more cause me to say this is a treasure when it comes to NT commentaries.

This work is truly monumental. It is written in clear straightfoward, everyday language. The work treats the New Testament and its authors with the utmost respect. I will use it as a first resource in all my Bible studies.

It gives good sound ideas, and backs it up with verses to follow along. It has big words which honestly I have to look up. But over all, it explains a lot.
