FOT is written from a conservative evangelical perspective. Lints finds much to affirm in conservative evangelicalism but also offers helpful critiques in at least two areas.
First, while upholding the traditional conservative evangelical approach to the inspiration of the Scriptures (inerrancy, authority, etc.), Lints clearly marks out a more humble path advocating that evangelicals not apply their description of the Bible to their own theology. Simply put, the evangelical's Bible is inspired and inerrant, but her theology is not.
Second, without trashing systematic theology or reducing its importance in any way, Lints offers extensive helpful comparison and differentiation between systematic theology (which looks at the whole Bible in terms of specific topics) and biblical theology (which looks at the whole Bible in terms of God's unfolding redeeming of creation and humanity).
FOT is a weighty evangelical voice on the work of creating theology in our time and place. Lints is worth reading and processing for evangelicals who see theological work as important for every generation.
This is a wonderful, clear-headed approach to taking the deeper things of Scripture seriously. No fluff will be found in this book!
