Schreiner's NT Theology: I received my copy!


As many of you know and have been discussing in the biblioblogosphere, Tom Schreiner's NT Theology is on the way.


Today I got home to find a package awaiting me--Tom's NT Theology!


I was very fortunate in that I was able to contribute to this project, albeit, in a small way. I compiled the author and Scripture indices that comprised close to 60 pages in the final form (936-983)! Admittedly, there were times when I thought, "What did I just get myself into?", but if you have ever had the chance to meet Tom you would understand that the countless hours were well worth it.


Tom is not only a great and prolific scholar, but he is hands down one of the nicest, most humble human beings I will ever meet. I look forward to seeing his work bring glory to God through Christ!

Matthew,

Congratulations! I need to order my copy.
Are you considering Southern for PhD work? They have a very strong faculty both in Biblical Studies and Systematic Theology. If you're interested in Paul, you will profit greatly to study with Schreiner, Seifrid, and Vickers many others.

Or...you could study at Durham with John Barclay, Stephen Barton, or Francis Watson... :) Just ask John Byron about how great Durham is!

Cel & Nijay-

I have considered both, but I am basically in a position where I would at least need full tuition, if not full tuition and a stipend.

Working with scholars of the caliber that you both mentioned would be a dream come true!

Looks quite good. If only I had the money.
