I say this in my recent essay “Three Reflections on Evangelical Academic Publishing”:
James M. Hamilton Jr. With the Clouds of Heaven: The Book of Daniel in Biblical Theology. New Studies in Biblical Theology 32. Downers Grove: IVP, 2014.
The book of Daniel contributes to the Bible’s unfolding redemptive-historical storyline. [Read more…]

James M. Hamilton Jr. What Is Biblical Theology? A Guide to the Bible’s Story, Symbolism, and Patterns. Wheaton: Crossway, 2013. 38-page sample PDF.

Jason C. Meyer. Preaching: A Biblical Theology. Wheaton: Crossway, 2013. 368 pp.
Jason recently replaced John Piper as the pastor for preaching and vision for Bethlehem Baptist Church, where my wife and I are members. I’m thrilled that our preaching pastor believes and practices what he writes in this book. [Read more…]
I can’t think of another OT seminary professor I’d rather team up with than Jason DeRouchie (pronounced deh-ROW-shee). He embodies Ezra 7:10. We spend about three hours together each week while commuting, and the better I get to know him the more I thank God for him.

Jason S. DeRouchie, ed. What the Old Testament Authors Really Cared About: A Survey of Jesus’ Bible. Grand Rapids: Kregel, 2013. 496 pp.
I love the subtitle.
My endorsement: [Read more…]
