Riassunto: Studying the theology of the New Testament can be a daunting task, even to the knowledgeable Bible student or pastor. Each of the twenty-seven books, written by various authors, has its own theological emphasis and nuances. How do we elicit a coherent message from such theological diversity, especially given that some of the theological statements in the New Testament seem to be at odds with one another? Is such an endeavor achievable or even valid? Theology of the New Testament takes a balanced approach in response to these challenges. Frank Thielman presents a theology of the New Testament that is careful to take into account the cultural and historical circumstances surrounding each book and the New Testament as a whole. He not only examines each book's theological content individually, but also in relation to the rest of the New Testament, particularly within each of the three theological units that comprise the New Testament: the gospels and Acts, the Pauline epistles, and the general epistles and Revelation. This canonical and synthetic approach honors both the theological diversity of the various books and the theological connections between the books. In the end, Thielman finds a unified theological vision of the New Testament, anchored in the centrality of Jesus Christ. Frank Thielman's Theology of the New Testament is an outstanding achievement. The book is marked by scholarly depth, exegetical rigor, and theological profundity. Both students and professors will profit immensely from this lucid treatment of the theology contained in the New Testament documents. Thomas R. Schreiner Professor of New Testament, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary An accessible presentation of the key theological points of the New Testament books by an accomplished New Testament scholar and teacher. Its clear style, lucid organization, and sound theological insight make it a prime resource for serious students in both the academy and the church. Karen H. Jobes, PhD Associate Professor of New Testament, Westmont College
Dal retro di copertina: This major new text in the field of the New Testament theology will be a valuable guide to students, scholars, pastors, and other serious students of the Bible. And it combines both a canonical and a synthetic approach to the theology of the New Testament. The book looks at each New Testamnet text in light of its particular theological concerns within its own historical and cultural context. In addition, introductory chapters to each of the three main sections of the New Testament—Gospels and Acts, Pauline Epistles, general Epistles and Revelation—set these sections within the context of contemporary scholarly debate. Concluding chapters to each section place those New Testament texts in conversation with each other. An introduction to the entire book locates its approach within the history of the discipline of New Testament theology. A concluding chapter pulls the threads of the various parts and chapters together with a description of the major theological emphases of the New Testament viewed as a whole. This approach makes Theology of the New Testamentan ideal text for teachers who want a survey of the entire New Testament that addresses both the particularity of each New Testament document and the theological coherence of the whole.
