New Studies in Biblical Theology - Thanksgiving – An investigation of a Pauline Theme (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Thanksgiving – An investigation of a Pauline Theme (NSBT)

by David W. Pao

"Be thankful" (Colossians 3:15) is a recurring exhortation in the letters of the apostle Paul. No other New Testament writer gives such a sustained emphasis on thanksgiving—and yet, major modern studies of Paul fail to wrestle with it. David Pao aims to rehabilitate this theme in this comprehensive and accessible study, a New Studies in … Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Possessed by God: A New Testament theology of sanctification and holiness (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Possessed by God: A New Testament theology of sanctification and holiness (NSBT)

by David G. Peterson

In this New Studies in Biblical Theology volume, David Peterson challenges the common assumption that the New Testament views sanctification as primarily a process. He argues that its emphasis falls upon sanctification as a definitive event, "God's way of taking possession of us in Christ, setting us apart to belong to him and to fulfi… Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Now My Eyes Have Seen You – Images of Creation and Evil in the book of Job (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Now My Eyes Have Seen You – Images of Creation and Evil in the book of Job (NSBT)

by Robert Fyall

'Now my eyes have seen you." (Job 42:5) Few biblical texts are more daunting, and yet more fascinating, than the book of Job—and few have been the subject of such diverse interpretation. For Robert Fyall, the mystery of God's ways and the appalling evil and suffering in the world are at the heart of Job's s… Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Now Choose Life – Theology and ethics in Deuteronomy (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Now Choose Life – Theology and ethics in Deuteronomy (NSBT)

by J. Gary Millar

Though written thousands of years ago, the book of Deuteronomy is unmatched in its relevance for the affluent Western church of today. Moses' words were meant to equip God's people for living godly lives in a prosperous, pluralistic world. The cultural changes now taking place in our own social setting make the parallel between Israel and the church… Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - God's Unfaithful Wife: A Biblical Theology of Spiritual Adultery (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - God's Unfaithful Wife: A Biblical Theology of Spiritual Adultery (NSBT)

by Raymond C. OrtlundJr.

The biblical theme of spiritual adultery stands in all its bluntness for a deeply offensive sin—the unfaithfulness of God's covenant people in departing from Yahweh, their husband, and going after false gods. Raymond C. Ortlund Jr. begins by showing how the Genesis vision of human marriage provides the logic and coherent network of m… Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Unceasing Kindness: A Biblical Theology of Ruth (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Unceasing Kindness: A Biblical Theology of Ruth (NSBT)

by Peter Lau and Gregory Goswell

The Old Testament book of Ruth is understandably a firm favorite in the church for small-group study and preaching: a heart-warming story of loyalty and love, a satisfying tale of a journey from famine to fullness. In the academy, the book has been a testing ground for a variety of hermeneutical approaches, and many different ways of interpreting it have bee… Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - The God Who Makes Himself Known: The Missionary Heart of the Book of Exodus (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - The God Who Makes Himself Known: The Missionary Heart of the Book of Exodus (NSBT)

by W Ross Blackburn

The Lord's commitment to make himself known throughout the nations is the overarching missionary theme of the Bible and the central theological concern of Exodus. Countering scholarly tendencies to fragment the text over theological difficulties, Ross Blackburn contends that Exodus should be read as a unified whole, and that an appreci… Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - The Book of Isaiah and God's Kingdom (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - The Book of Isaiah and God's Kingdom (NSBT)

by Andrew Abernethy

The book of Isaiah has nourished the church throughout the centuries. However, its massive size can be intimidating; its historical setting can seem distant, opaque, varied; its organization and composition can seem disjointed and fragmented; its abundance of terse, poetic language can make its message seem veiled—and where are those explicit prophecies ab… Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Slave of Christ – A New Testament Metaphor for total devotion to Christ (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Slave of Christ – A New Testament Metaphor for total devotion to Christ (NSBT)

by Murray J. Harris

The New Testament finds many ways to depict the relationship of Christians and their Lord. They are his disciples, sons, daughters and friends. But it is perhaps too little recognized that they are also his slaves. In this New Studies in Biblical Theology volume, Murray J. Harris sets out to uncover what it means to be a slave of Christ. H… Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Sealed with an Oath: Covenant in God's Unfolding Purpose (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Sealed with an Oath: Covenant in God's Unfolding Purpose (NSBT)

by Paul R Williamson

Paul R. Williamson looks at the role of the covenant concept in Scripture and the meaning of this terminology. He then sets the idea of covenant in the context of God's universal purpose, and traces the idea through Noah and the patriarchs, the nation of Israel and the kingship of David. Lastly, he shows how the new covenant is anticipated in the Old Tes… Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Hearing God's Words – Exploring biblical spirituality (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - Hearing God's Words – Exploring biblical spirituality (NSBT)

by Peter Adam

Many discussions of Christian spirituality draw on a range of traditions and "disciplines." Little attention, however, appears to have been given to the Bible itself for its teaching on this theme or as a source of spirituality. Similarly, it is commonly assumed that, when it comes to spirituality, the evangelical tradition has little to offer. … Read more…

New Studies in Biblical Theology - God's Mediators: A Biblical Theology of Priesthood (NSBT)

New Studies in Biblical Theology - God's Mediators: A Biblical Theology of Priesthood (NSBT)

by D. A. Carson and Andrew S Malone

There are many investigations of the Old Testament priests and the New Testament’s appropriation of such imagery for Jesus Christ. There are also studies of Israel’s corporate priesthood and what this means for the priesthood of God’s new covenant people. However, such studies are less frequently connected with each other: key interrelations are missed… Read more…
