Dr. Beale’s academic interests include the New Testament’s use of the Old Testament, the book of Revelation, the biblical-theological theme of the temple
as the dwelling place of God, and the topic of the plenary inspiration of scripture, among others. For those who are new to Dr. Beale’s writing and teaching, he recommends several resources below as the best place to start:
“This volume represents the matured culmination of much of Beale’s decades-long biblical-theological work. Impressive for its comprehensive scope and penetrating insights, it focuses on the climactic centrality of the resurrection and ascension
of Christ in the history of redemption and the inseparable and multifaceted saving benefits flowing from union with Christ specifically as resurrected.
It is fairly read as providing, as he says, a virtual ‘encyclopedia’ of that union. A valuable feature is the frequent ‘application’ sections throughout.
Truly a magnum opus, I commend its careful reading and study.”
