Review quote

The strength of According to Plan is its accessibility to the layperson. Other books that seek to develop a biblical theology make for thick reading. Goldsworthy avoids delving into intricate exegetical details. Instead, he seeks to provide his readers with an overall grasp of biblical theology. He focuses on the "big picture." [...]
The second strength of According to Plan is its Christ-centeredness. Goldsworthy emphasizes again and again that Christ is the one to whom all the Scriptures testify. God reveals himself primarily in Jesus Christ, showing us what the promises of the Old Testament are about. -- Trevin Wax * The Gospel Coalition * If you are a leader in a church, this book is a must read. It will greatly inform your exegesis, preaching, and teaching. -- Nicholas Piotrowski, Professor of Biblical Studies at Crossroads Bible College, Indianapolis * 9Marks * This book will be of real value to theological students, especially those beginning to study biblical theology. It is set out as a study manual with chapter summaries, brief one-sentence summaries of sections within chapters, diagrams (some more helpful than others), questions and suggestions for further reading... this is a very fine book and should have a wide readership. -- Geoffrey Grogan * Themelios *
