Biblical Theology – Nick Roark and Robert Cline (2018)

by | Apr 17, 2018 | Christian Living, Featured

One of the critical components of the Christian life involves understanding Scripture and applying it to our lives. This goal is at the heart of Nick Roark and Robert Cline’s book, Biblical Theology: How the Church Faithfully Teaches the Gospel. The authors join forces and present one of the shortest and most profound treatments of biblical theology on the market today.

Biblical theology provides an accurate framework for understanding the Bible. “It is,” as the authors write, “the scriptural roadmap that leads to Jesus … Biblical theology is for the church, begins with the Bible, and ends with King Jesus and his church.”

Unfortunately, the discipline of biblical theology tends to get overlooked or underemphasized in some churches and theological academies. Many are being taught to examine the finer details of Scripture, yet they miss the overarching meta-narrative. In the final analysis, they miss the “forest for the trees.” Roark and Cline make it clear that Jesus Christ is the Hero of the Bible. Their excellent work beautifully articulates the plot line of Scripture and draws readers to the person and work of the Lord Jesus.

Biblical Theology is a breath of fresh theological air that will help encourage and edify the church by leading her down the proper biblical path to glorify God. I highly recommended Biblical Theology: How the Church Faithfully Teaches the Gospel.
