Common Knowledge



Chapter 6 was the only chapter that is applicable to everyday life and also written in a clear manner. I struggled through the rest of the book. A lot of it looked Greek to me (both literally and figuratively).

I had the privilege of reading this book and then interviewing Dr. Köstenberger and Dr. Goswell about it (you can find the interview at episode 221 on the Cave To The Cross Apologetics podcast). Biblical Theology has almost taken a backseat in scholarship and subscribing to the "best" systematic theology seems to be all the rage (in certain circles). The authors do a great job of showing the value biblical theology has to offer and how it can work hand-in-hand with systematic theology.

You really do get three different books with this - a general overview of biblical theology; walking through all 66 books of the Bible focusing on theme, background, and the ethical point of view of each book; and you practically get a systematic theology from the previous two sections. Notes and citations are at the bottom of the page just as the good Lord intends it, and the citations and different organizations at the back will be very helpful as a reference guide. There are also sections of overview and reference concerning the whole Old Testament, also the period between the Testaments, and a section on the New Testament. Dr. Goswell took the Old Testament as a well-versed and solid evangelical scholar. Dr. Köstenberger

One can use this resource as a reference guide - walking through a book of the Bible you're going to read through, teach on, or write about will give you a good look using the trifold highlights. One can also read the book straight through, as I did, and see the beautiful way in which the Lord communicates who He is and what He wants from us as you walk through all 66 books of The Bible. The authors are biblically solid and have a high view of Scripture which makes this a valuable resource for those at any stage of Bible study. Final Grade - A+

I would definitely recommend the interview which can be found on YouTube, Rumble, Odysee, or your favorite podcast catcher (Cave To The Cross Apologetics episode 221) for a fuller discussion.

A must read. The book defines a three-dimension account of biblical interpretation. The author focuses on the history, literature, and theology of the bible - what is called the hermeneutical triad.
