Review: The King in His Beauty by Thomas Schreiner

The King in His BeautyOften as we journey through the Bible we run across more unfamiliar passages than we would like to admit. Why is this story here? How is this passage relevant to the story of salvation? Or maybe we have this attitude towards entire books. What purpose does Lamentations, or even Isaiah, serve? Even many older Christians haven’t given this much thought, though we may be good at finding our favourite books, chapters, or verses. Putting the whole Bible together to see where everything fits is both exciting and daunting so we often need help in understanding the story and flow, and this brings me to Thomas Schreiner’s The King in His Beauty: A Biblical Theology of the Old and New Testaments. For Schreiner, “Scripture unfolds the story of the kingdom, and God’s glory is the reason for the story.” (xiii, emphasis italicized in original). Schreiner uses the kingdom as a motif throughout this book, seeing a threefold focus of God’s rule, our role within His kingdom, and creation as the place where His kingship is worked out (xv). Schreiner desires that this will be a book that is “understandable for college students, laypersons, seminary students, and pastors” (x). This is a book for you!

My Top 10 Books of 2013

Also these are purely what I enjoyed the most in 2013, not necessarily the most important, nor the best in any objective sense. Many of these are academic, but not all. With that said, here’s the list.

Watch me fail my 2013 reading goal

This is going to be a crazy year. With our first child Isa being born in January, lots of plans for this blog, an ever-busier day job, more discipleship at CCBCY and two new classes to prepare for and teach (Intro to Theology this semester, and my own project next semester hopefully), I’m going to have a lot to do!
