This book is a very useful resource for pastors, teachers, and Christians in general. "

- AUGUSTUS LOPES, pastor at First Presbyterian Church, Goiânia, Brazil
“Incredible! This concise book is a veritable compendium of words of wisdom that help grasp God's biblical scenario and faithfully teach the Word! Its authors have done us a great service by distilling deep biblical concepts and making them simple, user-friendly and communicable. This is the kind of book you'll want to give to a Sunday school teacher, someone aspiring to ministry, or a candidate for the mission field. In a desire to do well, some teachers of the Word take the easy way of hastily using a passage to give a "practical lesson." But they miss the bigger picture, the glorious centerpiece therein. This wonderful tool that keeps me on track as a missionary and helps me teach new believers how to study and share the Word, should be translated into many languages! »

It is perfect for people in the Church who, although they want to adopt a sound theology and understand the biblical concepts necessary to teach the gospel well, find that deep brain work is too much of a challenge. This is a great resource and I look forward to recommending it to our Women's Ministry team. »

This book by Nick and Robert, with explanations and examples, is teaching Christians in a simple and constructive way. He shows them how to understand a particular Bible passage, while always keeping in mind the big picture that Christ is the ultimate goal of all scripture. I highly recommend this book, because it is an invaluable companion for any believer who desires to one day hear the words: "It is well, good and faithful servant." "
- NDAGI JOB GOSHI, part-time, international church planter
"Biblical theology is a subject that is frequently overlooked, although it is essential for understanding the Bible in its entirety. The authors of this excellent book are well aware of the importance of this discipline in order to grasp the storyline of the story of redemption. If you are looking for a tool that explains and applies biblical theology well, this book is for you. It is scriptural, well-written, easy to understand, practical, concise without being superficial, informative, and extremely useful for preaching and pastoral ministry. I am amazed at how much solid lesson can be found in such a small book. "

Biblical theology is a primary tool that helps Christians protect and share the gospel. I am extremely grateful for this book and rejoice to see that it is being used to strengthen the Church on a worldwide scale.

In addition, it will help all Christians to see, celebrate and communicate the gospel better. »
- ANDREW GIZINSKI, alumnus at RAK Evangelical Church, Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates
“Nick and Robert have achieved something that is rarely seen in such a large field. They succinctly articulated the core of biblical theology without oversimplifying the process. Every Christian will benefit from the many examples that show that enlightened biblical theology will transform the way we read, apply, and teach the Bible. It is a reliable journey on the road to Emmaus, during which the discovery of the presence of Christ throughout the Bible rejoices the heart. »

You will understand why by reading their book! Perhaps the phrase biblical theology gives you the impression that this is a manual intended for Bible schools or pastoral training, but it is rather a must-have for every Christian, since we are all intended to be stewards of the Church of Christ. »
