Today’s article is from Jim Hamilton, a professor at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. Hamilton has studied and written extensively on the subject of biblical theology. At first glance, “biblical theology” may seem like a topic that is so lofty and abstruse that it’s probably not all that important for the average pastor. Think again. Hamilton’s aim in the article that follows is to show how massively important the topic really is. At the end of the article, Sharefaith has provided Hamilton’s free chapter from a new book, Text-Driven Preaching, thanks to Dr. Hamilton and the book’s publisher, Broadman & Holman. You may also wish to consider purchasing the book God’s Glory in Salvation through Judgment: A Biblical Theology, for a complete discussion of this crucial topic.
