Four Lesser Known Books on Biblical Theology

There are many good books that have been produced over the last thirty or so years on the subject of biblical theology and the New Testament’s use of the Old Testament.  I wanted to point out four lesser known books that I discovered (seminary library), which proved to be really helpful.  I have yet to track down a copy of these books myself, but if you happen to be in a used christian bookstore or come across a copy somehow, purchase them because they are a rare find.

  • In the Fullness of Time, eds. Donald William, et al. This book is a collection of essays in honor of archbishop Donald Robinson.  Originally published in 1992, this book has many good essays on topics related to biblical studies.
  • God Who is Rich in Mercy, ed., Peter O’Brien, et al. This book is a collection of essays in honor of D. B. Knox. Originally published in 1986, this book has many excellent essays on biblical theology.  Some of the contributors to this volume are David Peterson and William Dumbrell.
  • This is That: New Testament Development of Some Old Testament Themes, by F. F. Bruce.  Bruce’s book was originally published in 1976 and although it is a short book, it has some really interesting points.
  • The Lord’s Annointed: Interpretation of Old Testament Messianic Texts, eds., Phillip Sattertwaite, et al.  Many good essays in this volume regarding Old Testament Messianic texts.  Some of the contributors include J. Gordon McConville, T. Desmond Alexander, and Iain Duguid.
