Description: "Few scholars would take on the task that Dr. Larry Helyer has chosen in this formidable textbook: to locate the center of biblical theology and find its unifying themes in the chief witnesses in the New Testament. Following a 120-page review of the problems and proposals traditionally associated with the task, Helyer studies Jesus, Paul and John to locate a common theological thread--which he does with care and discernment. He claims that the New Testament does indeed have a unifying motif and he defends this successfully. This is an enormously helpful book that will give needed guidance to evangelical students for many years to come." -- --Gary M. Burge, professor of New Testament, Wheaton College & Graduate School
