Be on lookout for two upcoming books from James Hamilton.

First, there's What Is Biblical Theology? A Guide to the Bible's Story, Symbolism, and Patterns.

Here's the blurb:
Is the Bible just a random collection of old stories or is there something more going on within the pages of Scripture? Is it possible that the ancient books of the Old and New Testaments are part of a single, unified story, begun long ago but extending into our world today? In this introduction to biblical theology, professor James Hamilton orients Bible readers afresh to the overarching storyline of Scripture, helping Christians read and interpret the Bible as the biblical writers intended and as the early Christians read it. Examining Scripture’s key symbols, patterns, and themes, Hamilton helps readers truly grasp—and be transformed by—the theology of redemption contained in God’s Word.
It's out in November from Crossway.

Also, watch out for The Bible's Big Story: Salvation History for Kids. Here's the blurb:
With easily remembered rhymes and Bible verses take your child through the span of Salvation History from Creation to the Fall, the Flood to the Exodus, the Exile to the Crucifixion and beyond... James M. Hamilton writes about real history, God's Salvation History, and our future.
The Bible's Big Story is out in September.

It looks like both of these are based on Hamilton's longer, scholarly work God's Glory in Salvation through Judgment: A Biblical Theology (which I highly recommend, by the way). It's available here:
