From the Inside Flap
"Beale's volume is far reaching, written at a high scholarly level, and conversant with a wide range of scholarship. Even where one may disagree, Beale's treatment is always informative and at times even provocative. A very important contribution to biblical theology that deserves to be widely read."
--Andreas J. Köstenberger, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
"Biblical scholars and theologians, after long separation and now perhaps with a healthier sense of their own historical location, have recently found themselves engaged on a common project: what is it that binds the church's canonical texts together? Reflecting its author's situatedness within the evangelical Reformed tradition and firm commitment to exegetical integrity and the priority of the biblical storyline, Beale's extensive and detailed new book is a most welcome addition to the ongoing discussion."
--Rikk Watts, Regent College
"In your hands is a gold mine of biblical scholarship, a distillation of a lifetime of study by one of the most respected New Testament scholars of our day. Beale's arguments and conclusions are presented with such clarity and force that any interested reader, whether pastor, layperson, or professional scholar, will be able to benefit from the rich insights that appear on almost every page."
--Gordon P. Hugenberger, Park Street Church, Boston; Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
"Beale has been harvesting the fields of biblical theology in major biblical commentaries and exegetical/theological studies for many years. Here now is his biblical theology magnum opus. As with all of Beale's works, this volume is brimming with rich and deeply satisfying redemptive-historical exegesis. This provides an enormous feast for anyone wishing to understand in greater detail the thrust of the Bible's saving story, but it also results in a great contribution to scholarship."
--Charles E. Hill, Reformed Theological Seminary Orlando
"This volume, impressive for its massive sweep, is the matured fruit of the author's extensive work over several decades in New Testament theology. Especially those with interests in biblical eschatology, with some attention to the role of the church and Christian living 'between the times,' as well as in the New Testament use of the Old will profit from the characteristically sound and often stimulating instruction Beale provides."
--Richard B. Gaffin Jr., Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia
"A New Testament Biblical Theology takes Beale's years of study, teaching, and research and presents his readers with the most thorough and mature work of New Testament biblical theology yet seen in the English language. He has structured the massive volume in a beautiful fashion, focusing nearly half of the work on the eschatological storyline of the Old Testament then moving to the story of the already-not yet latter-day resurrection and new-creational kingdom of the New."
--Richard C. Gamble, Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary
From the Back Cover
"The canonical scope and focus on the biblical storyline give Beale's New Testament Biblical Theology a unique place among the many New Testament theologies now available. The book is vintage Beale, creatively making connections between Old Testament and New Testament and pursuing a definite vision of how the Bible hangs together."
--Douglas J. Moo, Wheaton College
"Certainly Beale has written his magnum opus, in which he deftly integrates the Scriptures via the new creation theme. The use of the Old Testament in the New Testament forms the backbone of this work so that readers grasp how the storyline of Scripture coheres. We stand in debt to the author for his detailed and profound unfolding of New Testament theology."
--Thomas R. Schreiner, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"A magnificent achievement! Rarely does a volume in biblical studies come along with such breadth, depth, insight, and specificity. It is a brilliant reconstruction of themes that are central to Christian faith. This is a landmark accomplishment."
--David F. Wells, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
"Reflecting thirty years of research, this volume is unique in our time and in fact without close parallel in a discipline (biblical theology) that split the Old Testament off from the New over two hundred years ago. Beale has brought them back together in a creative and methodical way."
--Robert W. Yarbrough, Covenant Theological Seminary
"Drawing on decades of exegetical research and teaching, A New Testament Biblical Theology exists at the intersection of biblical studies and theology. Carrying on the tradition of Geerhardus Vos, Beale has raised the bar for biblical theology in our day. We will be digesting this volume for many years to come."
--Michael Horton, Westminster Seminary California
"A stimulating read. Readers will find the emphasis on the already-not yet end-time new creation and kingdom very enriching and insightful. What we have in this new biblical theology is an appreciation for the biblical story as a whole, an appreciation that provides a much-needed counterweight to the atomistic tendencies in much of our exegetical and theological work. Beale's book will make an important contribution."
--Craig A. Evans, Acadia Divinity College
"Beale demonstrates new creation as an umbrella category covering all of the other major motifs not only in the New Testament but also in the relevant Old Testament and Second Temple Jewish background material. Along the way, readers are treated to outstanding up-to-date discussions of most of the main topics they have come to expect and some new ones. Throughout, Beale is thoroughly evangelical and thoroughly scholarly. This work is a true tour de force."
--Craig L. Blomberg, Denver Seminary

As a busy layman trying to run a business and yet be faithful to the local church, I have only been able to get to page 200 so far...I find it hard to put down, but with checking scriptures, the reading is slow. I am sure that I will have more comments when I finish.
I have appreciated some of Dr. Beale's other work in the past - The church and Temple's Mission; his commentary on Revelation (I had to skip over the Greek, and it has been a few years since I read that), and so when I found this book at the Westminster Bookstore website, I bought it, even though it is not available at Amazon.com yet. I do not regret doing that.
I recommend this book without reservation...whether or not you agree with Dr. Beale, this book is a must for every Christian who is serious about his or her faith.
