The King in His Beauty: A Biblical Theology of the Old and New TestamentsBy: Dr Thomas R Schreiner, Thomas R, Ph.D. Schreiner
The King in His Beauty is a biblical theology of the entire Bible that attempts together the Bible's entire message under one rubric: the Kingdom of God. Approaching the storyline from the perspective of biblical theology and examining the overarching narrative that is conveyed throughout, Schreiner emphasizes three interrelated themes that standout in the biblical story and undergird the theme of 'Kingdom of God'. Included themes are: God as Lord, human beings as made in God's image, and the location or place in which God's rule is exercised. Ultimately, Schreiner concludes, the goal of God's kingdom is for him to lavish his love on us and us to see and understand the king and his beauty and to be enraptured in his glory.
