Congrats to Gentry and Wellum on Kingdom through Covenant

I am delighted that the UPS man just dropped this book at our house.

Heartiest congratulations to Peter J. Gentry and Stephen J. Wellum on their book, Kingdom through Covenant: A Biblical-Theological Understanding of the Covenants.

I’m thrilled to see this in print, and I’m excited about the discussion of this book and my own God’s Glory in Salvation through Judgment: A Biblical Theology that will take place at ETS this fall.

Here are the details on the session:

I am honored to serve alongside Professors Gentry and Wellum. I don’t consider myself worthy of their company, to say nothing of Tom Schreiner’s, who having written a Pauline Theology and a New Testament Theology will soon bring out his own Whole-Bible Theology.

Other single volume attempts at Whole Bible Biblical Theology include the following:

Geerhardus Vos, Biblical Theology, 1948

Willem Vangemeren, The Progress of Redemption, 1988

Brevard Childs, Biblical Theology of the Old and New Testaments, 1993

Charles H. H. Scobie, The Ways of Our God, 2003

Reinhard Feldmeier and Hermann Spieckermann, God of the Living, 2011

My book appeared in 2010, Gentry and Wellum’s appears now in 2012, and Schreiner’s The King in His Beauty is set to appear in 2013. That means that three of the four larger (600+pg) evangelical attempts at Whole Bible Biblical Theology published in this century have been written by members of the faculty of Southern Seminary.

If you’re interested in biblical theology, let me invite you to check out SBTS. This a great place to study.
