Many believers view biblical theology as an academic discipline that has nothing to do with the church or their ministry. In fact, in a bookstore, books on this subject are usually far removed from those on the church. Biblical theology, however, is crucial for a clear sense of God's direction for our church and ministry.
In this book, Michael Lawrence brings the academic and church worlds together by emphasizing the practical value of biblical theology for the ministry of every Christian. He uses various tools such as exegesis, biblical theology, and systematic theology to synthesize the history of the Bible from different perspectives, and then explains how we can put biblical theology into practice in areas such as teaching, preaching, counseling, and mission.
Packed with examples and practical advice, this book will enable church leaders and all believers to think, teach and minister using the framework of biblical theology.
Flip through the first few pages
Michael Lawrence (Ph.D., University of Cambridge; M.Div., Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary) is the senior pastor of Hinson Baptist Church in Portland, Oregon. He is also a board member of The Gospel Coalition. He and his wife, Adrienne, have five children.
"Michael Lawrence provides a clear and compelling account of how biblical theology leads us to adjust our worldview to God's. He invites us to roll up our sleeves and get to work. He invites us to roll up our sleeves and work with enthusiasm, keeping our eyes truly on Jesus Christ. The doctrinal support (principles of typology, covenant, God's plan and sovereignty, etc.) is dense but concisely presented, and is complemented by many stimulating practical illustrations (homiletics, helping relationships, mission, caring for the poor, etc.), as always in 9Marks. This is a lively and accessible manual that will be invaluable to all church leaders and useful for every Christian."

Étudier la Bible avec une exégèse solide

Enfin !! Un livre qui aide les croyants à étudier la Bible avec une exégèse solide, joignant herméneutique et théologie biblique. Ce livre donne les outils pour tout croyants qui désire lire la Bible et découvrir ce qu'elle dit vraiment. Je recommande !

Intéressant, rationnel et pratique

Certes, nous avons ici un livre de théologie. Mais Lawrence survole les thèmes abordés d’une manière accessible tant pour les Anciens que pour les laïcs, avec un langage qui évite la lourdeur souvent présente dans ce type d’ouvrage. Par exemple : « Ce qui est remarquablement absent du reste du Nouveau Testament, c’est toute indication ou tout mandat selon lequel nous serions censés construire ou susciter le royaume. Nous devons le proclamer et inviter les autres à y entrer par Christ. Mais c’est Christ, et non l’Église, qui suscite le royaume de Dieu » (p. 253). La lecture de ce bouquin constitue une bonne utilisation du temps disponible.
