About the Author
Theologian, author, and long-time Professor of Biblical Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary, Geerhardus Johannes Vos was born in March, 1862 at Heerenveen, Netherlands. A prolific author, Vos's published writings include articles, essays, reviews, poems, and biblical-theological studies on both Old and New Testament topics. The Teaching of Jesus Concerning the Kingdom of God (1903) and his study of Pauline theology, The Pauline Eschatology (1930), remain two of his most important works. Vos's approach to the theology of the Old and New Testaments was published in 1948 as Biblical Theology (reprinted by the Trust in 1975). (For more information, visit banneroftruth.org)

It is taking me a while to fully appreciate this work. You have to engage a lot of thought to work out what is written at times. But this is why we get books like this, isn't it? I purchased the hardbound copy. Since this would probably be a book you may often reference (if you end up liking it) I would recommend getting a paper back copy, then taking it to your local office/stationary store and have them spiral bound it. Some of my classmates did this and I'm very envious of them. :)
I love this offering, and much is to be gained in one's spiritual growth!!
This is a book that in order to be thoroughly digested might need to be read twice. But all in all you will learn a ton about the unity of the two testaments, storyline of the bible, and Redemptive history. Although this might not be the best place to start when beginning to study this discipline, once you are introduced you would be wise to consult Vos, considered by many to be the authority on the subject.
This book by Vos is, to put it simply, excellent and immensely rewarding. The text is chock full of beautiful insights and poignant theology.
Even if you do not buy into Reformed Theology this book will give you much food for thought and most likely uplift you to new heights. Please do not make the mistake of not reading this book because you happen to belong to a denomination that does not endorse the covenantal paradigm. That would be a significant mistake and you will miss out on some profound theological insights.
If there is one book on Biblical Theology that you must have then make it Vos. Yes, it is a difficult read but well worth the effort.
