Four Views on Moving Beyond the Bible to Theology

Four Views on Moving Beyond the Bible to Theology September 24, 2009

I came across an advert for a very exciting forthcoming book from Zondervan:

Four Views on Moving Beyond the Bible to Theology (out in November, I think).

The question is – who are the four scholars?

Overall, they chose well.

Walter Kaiser – A Principlizing model

Daniel M. Doriani – A Redemptive-Historical model

Kevin Vanhoozer – A Drama-of-Redemption model

William Webb – A Redemptive-Movement model

Aside from being a good debate overall, this is one of the most critical issues in biblical studies and hermeneutics at this time.  This kind of discussion is even long overdue.

In fact, if this book lives up to what we normally expect from these authors, this might even become a standard textbook in hermeneutics courses.  I know that this is exactly the kind of issue that seriously affects pastoral ministry, personal life choices for Christians, and attitudes towards the ongoing relevance of Scripture.  I am very excited to see what this book is like, as I also enjoy reading the thoughts of the respondents.

This particular COUNTERPOINTS volume is unique in that the respondents include Chris Wright, Mark Strauss, and Al Wolters.
