A Biblical-Theological Introduction to the Old and New Testament 

A Biblical-Theological Introduction to the Old and New Testament (BTION) is an excellent work to have open alongside your Bible and commentary. You’ll find it to be extremely helpful. This new resource was published for the benefit of preachers, teachers, and serious students of God’s Word. It was carefully researched and authored by the professors of the Reformed Theological Seminary (RTS).

The authors of this work tell us there are several unique features and aspirations of these two volumes:

  • They are aimed at pastors and interested Christian readers, rather than fellow scholars.
  • They are written by scholars of biblical studies who are unafraid of and indeed very much appreciative of dogmatics.
  • These volumes unashamedly come from the standpoint of biblical inerrancy and Reformed theology. A high view of Scripture and a warm embrace of confessional Reformed theology are hallmarks of RTS, and these ideals shine through these books.
  • These introductions are designed to be pastoral and helpful. Preachers, ministry leaders, Bible teachers, students, and others engaged in Christian discipleship are in view. The authors want to edify you and help you edify others.

Much More Than an Introduction to Bible Books

One reason the BTION is such a great companion to commentaries and other study tools is the format developed for each book of the Bible. Each book begins with a thorough Introduction, followed by detailed discussions of Background Issues, Structure & Outline, Message & Theology, and for Old Testament books, Approaching the New Testament.
