The aim of this book is to provide an account of the unfolding of the mind of God in history, through the successive agents of His special revelation. Geerhardus Vos handles this under three main divisions: the Mosaic epoch of revelation, the prophetic epoch of revelation, and the New Testament.
Such an historical approach is not meant to supplant the work of the systematic theologian; nevertheless, the Christian gospel is inextricably bound up with history, and the biblical theologian thus seeks to highlight the uniqueness of each biblical document in that succession. As the biblical themes are developed in this book, readers will discover anew a rich variety of Scripture.
"Quite unique. A thorough study of this volume will abundantly repay the student of Scripture. We recommend it most heartily."? - Evangelical Presbyterian
