The New Creation and the Storyline of Scripture – Frank Thielman (2021)

by | Jul 7, 2021 | Christian Living, Featured

The New Creation and the Storyline of Scripture by Frank Thielman is the most recent installment in Crossway’s Short Studies in Biblical Theology. The goal of this series, according to the editors, is “to magnify the Savior and build up his church – magnifying the Savior through showing how the whole Bible points to him and his gracious rescue of helpless sinners; and building up the church by strengthening believers in their grasp of these life-giving truths.”

Thielman’s work is the most general in nature in the Crossway series. It guides readers from a world under the curse of sin to the New Jerusalem in Revelation 21. The author does a commendable job in a short amount of space in showing God’s redemptive purposes in the plotline of Scripture. “Because God is so gracious,” writes Thielman, “he has not left his creatures to wallow in the mire of their own rebellion against him. He has undertaken costly and concrete steps to put the world right.”
