Book Review: What Is Biblical Theology?

Main Article Content

Wann Fanwar


The book examines the teaching of the Bible from three perspectives: the Bible’s big story, its symbolic
universe and its love story. The initial step in the discussion is to provide a rounded understanding of biblical
theology. Hamilton’s basic premise is that biblical theology is an examination of ‘the interpretive perspective
of the biblical authors/ (p. 15). Whatever the material type, this approach is adhered to consistently in the
book. Hamilton’s stated aim is that readers will not only adopt the perspective of the biblical authors but ‘will
read the world from the Bible’s perspective’ rather than the other way around (p. 23).
