9Marks leadership interview: Greg Beale gives a crash course on the discipline of biblical theology, assesses recent works on it, and explains what he’s written and why.
These were some that Beale (and at times Dever) highly recommends:
- Presence of the Future: The Eschatology of Biblical Realism by Ladd. Beale recommends this even over Ladd’s Theology of the New Testament.
- Some Systematic Theologies: Turretin, Bavinck, Dabney.
- Some OT or NT Theologies: Goldsworthy on OT, Schreiner, Thielman, Waltke,
- Some Whole-Bible Biblical Theologies: Goldsworthy, Scobie
- Preaching: Greidanus, Greidanus (later book), Goldsworthy
Update: you can listen to Beale attempt to summarize the essence of his book A New Testament Biblical Theology in these two lectures, the Sizemore Lectures, at Midwstern Baptist Theological Seminary (November 2-3, 2010):
- Inaugurated Eschatology and its Implications for Living and Preaching
- Inaugurated Eschatology and it Implications for Ecclesiology
