"As a heavy-weight contribution to this field of research the book is to be commended as a thoughtful, important and impressive piece of work."--Marcus Nodder, Now Reviews, May 2009
"Beale argues that humans are 'imagining' beings, necessarily reflecting one image or another, and do it becomes crucial to determine who or what we are reflecting and to whom or what we are becoming conformed. Having established this thesis, Beale spends most of the book supporting it by demonstrating how the Bible presents this argument. I found a lot of Beale's initial Old Testament exgesis to be fascinating."--On Journeying with those in Exile (, January 1, 2009
"Beale's work--a masterful exercise in biblical theology--is compelling. The book is weighty, but accessible, and Beale's tone is irenic throughout."--Gary A. Parrett, Interpretations, July 2010
"Greg Beale has turned out yet another masterpiece of biblical theology and intertextual exegesis. Beale is a master at letting Scripture interpret Scripture."--Green Baggins (, February 2, 2009
"If you're studying the subject of worshipping anything that is a substitute for God, you'll surely want to obtain this volume."--The Baptist Bulletin, March/April 2009
"Preachers, students, and teachers will find in this exciting book not only original ideas, but also food for thought about the relevance of intertextuality for biblical theology."--Matthieu Richelle, Themelios, 2009
"Think of this book as a thorough resource to use for your sermons, a textbook on idolatry, and a voice of wisdom that is not afraid to call into question the worship of the Church. Worship leaders, pastors, and small group leaders alike will have more than enough in this resource to use for weeks on end; and with a topic talked about this much in Scripture, this is exactly what we need."--Worship Leader, March/April 2009
"This stimulating and challenging book will make readers think."--Linden D. McLaughlin, Bibliotheca Sacra, October-December 2010
