Biblical and Christological Theology begins with a detailed thematic outline for teaching biblical theology around classic texts. The book, then, meticulously goes over that same outline covering such topics as: God, the trinity, revelation and bibliology, angels, creation, sin, Christ, salvation, the Holy Spirit, the Church, and last things.
Scriptural texts are abundant in this work, and Rabbinic and Near Eastern sources are also cited, so as to give further background to the study of Biblical Theology. Finally, there is an appendix of great hymns and their contribution to theology.
This study seeks to emphasize Christ throughout so that Christ may be worshiped and glorified.
