Book Review: Gospel and Kingdom: A Christian Interpretation of the Old Testament

Gospel and Kingdom: A Christian Interpretation of the Old TestamentGospel and Kingdom: A Christian Interpretation of the Old Testament by Graeme Goldsworthy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a good book in its central thesis of interpreting the Old Testament in light of the Gospel. This is generally a good overview of biblical theology. The kingdom is certainly a prominent theme throughout scripture we must be aware of when looking at smaller portions. His view of the kingdom is not entirely in line with Scripture, though quite consistent with reformed dichotomous covenant theology and the over realized eschatology of amillennialism. It turns as you would expect in certain places. This is still a good resource for seeing Christ in the Old Testament.

Book Review: The Scriptures Testify About Me: Jesus and the Gospel in the Old Testament

The Scriptures Testify about Me: Jesus and the Gospel in the Old TestamentThe Scriptures Testify about Me: Jesus and the Gospel in the Old Testament by D.A. Carson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is a collection of sermons from a TGC conference. Each chapter is a sermon manuscript from a different speaker. Some are better than others and in different ways. The book is good overall and a couple of chapters were really good.

Review: Work and Our Labor in the Lord

Work and Our Labor in the LordWork and Our Labor in the Lord by James M. Hamilton Jr.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This brief book presents a biblical theology of work. It would be an excellent introduction to the subject if one is unfamiliar with the biblical teaching on work. Hamilton shows us what it looks like to faithfully bear the image of God in our work and not be idolaters. He does this by pulling out propositional teachings from Scripture and providing examples of faithful work. I always find it edifying and profitable to read him and I always come away with some things to think about I haven’t considered before.
