If there is one thing that I think the church desperately needs it is biblical theology. Not biblical in the since that it is correct, although this is necessary, but biblical theology in the sense that its aim is to understand the grand narrative or metanarrative of Scripture. Most of us are familiar with systematic theology, the organization of biblical teaching around various themes and questions i.e. “Sin” or “What is God’s character?” However, I am convinced that the church is lacking an overarching understanding of what Scripture says. Thankfully Michael Lawrence has recently published Biblical Theology in the Life of the Church and 9Marks has posted a fantastic interview with Michael Lawrence, Mark Dever, Tom Schreiner, and Jonathan Leeman concerning this book.
