About Typology of Biblical Studies
The text is one of the standards in the field of Typology in Biblical studies. The study is itself is "replete and complete" with historical, intra-Biblical, and interdepartmental evaluations of typology. The language is ornate and intricate in Fairbairn's writing style but well worth the effort to follow.

Fairbairn thoroughly discusses the material. For example, Cherubim are analyzed from Genesis to Revelation. He examines the historical process of their development, meaning, and usage in the contexts of each Bible book. He discusses the Cherubim as symbol and the elevation of that symbolism in thought-provoking detail. Similar enlightenment is found for discussions of other types, meanings, and development over time. He shows that the Old Testament types were fulfilled in the New Testament, yet function as a type pointing onward into the Eschaton, just as does the NT anti-type.

This book is best suited for long-term, intense study, rather than light reading because of the complexity of some material and the wording. The book remains an absolute wealth for Biblical typology.
