About-

In Christ and the New Creation, Matthew Emerson takes a fresh approach to understanding New Testament theology by using a canonical methodology. Although typically confined to Old Testament theology, Emerson sees fruitfulness in applying this method to New Testament theology as well. Instead of a thematic or book-by-book analysis, Emerson attempts to trace the primary theological message of the New Testament through paying attention to its narrative and canonical shape. He concludes that the order of the books of the New Testament emphasize the story of Christ's inauguration, commissioning, and consummation of the new creation.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Emerson provides us with a most fascinating project, a New Testament theology conceived by attending to the New Testament's literary and canonical shape. I recommend Christ and the New Creation for hermeneuts, biblical theologians, and systematic theologians."
--Bruce Ashford, Provost and Associate Professor of Theology and Culture, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

"In Christ and the New Creation, Matthew Emerson ably interacts with major biblical passages and interprets the new creation theme holistically, theologically, and with an eye for how it affects the church. The writing is clear, the argument cogent, the structure appropriate, and the contribution both significant and timely."
--Chris Morgan, Dean and Professor of Theology, California Baptist University

"Christ and the New Creation exhibits a comprehensive mastery of a broad range of scholarly disciplines, hermeneutical methodologies, biblical themes, and a thorough grasp of the primary and secondary literature related to biblical theology. . . . While some may not affirm every aspect of the methodology or conclusions, Christ and the New Creation stimulates our intellect, challenges our conceptions, excites our imaginations, and advances the discussion toward a canonical New Testament theology."
--Alan S. Bandy, Assistant Professor of New Testament and Greek, Oklahoma Baptist University
