WHAT IS BIBLICAL THEOLOGY? by James Hamilton is small book that has a ton of great insight in it. In the book, Hamilton seeks to illustrate the unifying structure of the whole Bible, clarifying what is meant by the term Biblical Theology
Hamilton looks at the symbols the authors of the Bible uses to communicate their story. My favorite part of the book is the way Hamilton shows that biblical theology is about each of the authors' perspectives upon redemptive history. They build upon one another, and they together tell one grand story. Hamilton walks us through the Scriptures to show how this one grand story is laid out.
I've read a lot of books on biblical theology, and this is definitely one of my favorites. For a short book, it reveals so much.
