Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Biblical theology attempts to explore the theological coherence of the canonical witnesses; no serious Christian theology can overlook this issue. The essays in the present volume illustrate the complexity and richness of the conversation that results from attentive consideration of the question. In a time when some voices are calling for a moratorium on biblical theology or pronouncing its concerns obsolete, this collection of meaty essays demonstrates the continuing vitality and necessity of the enterprise. Richard B. Hays, George Washington Ivey Professor of New Testament, The Divinity School, Duke University, USA This volume on biblical theology jumps into the fray and poses the right kind of questions. It does not offer a single way forward. Several of the essays are quite fresh and provocative, breaking new ground (Bray, Reno); others set out the issues with clarity and grace (Bartholomew); others offer programmatic analysis (Webster; Bauckham); others offer a fresh angle of view (Chapman, Martin). The success of this series is in facing the challenge of disarray in biblical studies head-on and then modelling a variety of approaches to stimulate our reflection. Christopher Seitz, Professor of Old Testament and Theological Studies, St. Andrews University, UK

7 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Robert Knetsch on August 20, 2007
Format: Paperback
In my research on the strange thing called "biblical theology" I came across this interesting book. Clearly written in general from an evangelical perspective (which is ok by me), this collection of essays about the task of biblical theology takes on various issues and analyses. There are several issues, from the problem of biblical theology in general to some specific applications of biblical theology; one that I found very helpful was Al Wolter's discussion of an obscure verse in Zachariah. Bauckham contributes a meaty essay on the problem of 'monotheism' as a biblical category (which, in modern terms, is not).

The fantastic essays by John Webster and R.R. Reno both struck me as the one-two punch that, to a certain extent, deconstructed much of the work of the whole first 2/3 of the book. Webster challenges readers to think theologically about the very ontology of the Bible; otherwise any technique or method falls flat. Reno points out that so often biblical theology has a strange effect of veering away from the text itself to develop "theologies" external to the text. These two essays are a wonderful end to a good book that probably would have left me unsatisfied were it not for the contributions of Reno and Webster.
