Top customer reviews
Klink and Lockett helpfully divide the field of biblical theology into five distinct approaches. They summarize each approach then offer an extended summary and interaction with a leading representative of each approach.
This would be an ideal textbook in an introductory course on biblical theology. Pastors interested in the field would benefit from it as well.
Understanding Biblical Theology is a helpful resource to map and engage with the various versions of biblical theology.
If you don't understand Biblical Theology because it is new to you, please don't start here. This is not the book for you. You will likely end up bored and confused. Instead start with something like Alexander's "Eden to the New Jerusalem" or Goldworthy's "According to Plan".
If on the other hand you don't understand Biblical Theology because you have encountered various approaches to the Bible that all call themselves Biblical Theology, then this book will provide the clarity you are looking for.
