review 1: Honestly one of my favorite books I have ever read. Schreiner deftly moves through each book of the Bible (while grouping some, such as Paul's epistles), showing how each connects to the Bible's overall storyline and themes while letting them speak for themselves. It is a treasure trove of Biblical knowledge, wisdom, and insight. It's written at a level that I think most Christians could handle, despite its length, and I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to get a better handle on how the whole Bible fits together as one coherent story, centered on the kingdom of God, fulfilled in Christ.
review 2: I have been looking forward to this book for quite some time as Dr. Schreiner has been immensely helpful in my spiritual growth over the past few years (eve
... moren though I don't agree with him about everything). Needless to say, I was not disappointed in the least with this book. I have admittedly not made it through this entire book (it is 736 pages long), but what I have read so far has been outstanding and really backs up Schreiner's main thesis that the "kingdom of God" fits well as the central theme of the entire Bible (including those books of the Bible that don't ever mention the words "king", "kingdom", "rule" or "reign" specifically). Schreiner systematically, but in a very readable format, talks about the "kingdom of God" in every book of the Bible and never shies away from the tough questions he has to face as it pertains to backing up his thesis. On a personal note, I found his chapter on 2 Peter/Jude to be very well-written as Schreiner talked about the common themes prevalent in both books of the Bible, specifically drawing attention to the "lordship of Christ" and really showed that he had spent quality time in both of these books which is saying something since these are books of the Bible that are rarely delved into in any kind of worthwhile detail showing that they have been correctly understood.[I was given a free copy of this book by Baker Academic via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review] less
