SIDEBAR: Bibical Theology Book List

by Bob Caldwell

Books on systematic theology abound, but works on biblical theology are less known. Here are five titles to consider:

• Brevard S. Childs, Biblical Theology of the Old and New Testaments: Theological Reflection on the Christian Bible (Minneapolis, Minnesota: Fortress, 1992).

• Walter Brueggemann, Old Testament Theology: An Introduction (Nashville, Tennessee: Abingdon, 2008).

• Paul R. House, Old Testament Theology (Downers Grove, Illinois: InterVarsity, 1998).

• Larry R. Helyer, The Witness of Jesus, Paul, and John: An Exploration in Biblical Theology (Downers Grove, Illinois: InterVarsity, 2008). (This work has a terrific introduction on how to practice biblical theology.)

• George Eldon Ladd, A Theology of the New Testament (Grand Rapids, Michigan: Eerdmans, 1974).
