What Is Biblical Theology? – James M. Hamilton Jr.

I was excited to read What Is Biblical Theology? By James M. Hamilton.  My excitement was not met with disappointment.  This short book gives a great introduction to anyone of how to read the Bible theological and to understand the overarching narrative of the Bible.

Hamilton does a thorough yet succinct job of explaining the Bible’s storyline by examining the symbols, types, imagery and patterns.  This is such an important topic for all believers to know, and Hamilton tackles it with brilliance.  This book is must reading for anyone wanting to take Bible study seriously and to deepen their understanding.  I highly recommend it to anyone.  The book is a quick and easy read but also very deep in its knowledge and insight.  It takes a scholar that is still connected to the average church member to do this and Hamilton shows great acumen in this.

So basically if you want to increase the depth of your Bible study read this book.  It will greatly bless you.

I received this book in from the publisher, Crossway, for the purpose of review with no requirement to write a positive review.
