Beale has written a comprehensive (and to my mind, convincing) biblical theology, centering on the role of the temple both in Scripture and in the Ancient Near East. (David Renwick, Lexington Theological Quarterly, Spring 2007)
I recommend this work for anyone wrestling with eschatological issues of fulfillment or handling temple texts that are dealt with in this book. As for me, I intend to have the book handy anytime I apporach biblical theology as a guidebook in methodology. (Tim Barker, Truth on Fire blog, July 12, 2008)
. . . One of the finest studies in biblical theology available. (Andrews University Seminary Studies, Fall 2007)
"[Beale's] exegesis and theological insights will provoke [readers] in their own study of the Temple." (Missiology, January 2006)
"The importance of this book lies not only in the competent handling of its chosen theme but in three other things: its evocative unpacking of the theme of the temple and its relations to broader structures of thought, including the kingdom of God; its modeling of the way biblical theology is to be done; and its capacity to cause readers to perceive fresh and wonderful things in the Scriptures, and to bow in worship and gratitude." (D. A. Carson)

Even without quoting these extra biblical sources Mr. Beale still has a solid case about missions and the understanding of expanding creation excellent thesis and I applaud his efforts to reveal hidden truths from God's word, they all point to Messiah Yeshua!
Beale's argument is cumulative and some of his arguments are more persuasive than others. Some allusions, he admits, are rather speculative. Yet Beale provides the reader with plenty of scriptural references to back up his points so the reader can come to their own conclusions. His work sheds new light on a host of passages and provides a deeper understanding of the storyline of the Bible. Many readers, however, will find the content to be very academic and the exegesis quite heavy.
