IVP, 2002

Blurb Review by Graham Beynon

Blurb

This is an exciting new book. It is an accessible collection of twenty essays by a wide range of Old and New Testament scholars - some are established contributors to the field of biblical theology, while others are newer arrivals on the scene. Together they offer a fresh assessment of issues in biblical theology: where it has been, the status of questions within it, and its future prospects.
