Biblical Theology

Scott J Hafemann (Ed)

$26.99

Paperback

Ever since Brevard Childs's 1970 declaration of the crisis in biblical theology, the discipline has faced rumours of its imminent demise. But the patient refuses to die. The doctors continue to argue over how to proceed with treatment and even over whether treatment is worth pursuing, but the patient hangs on.

The turn of the millennium appears to be a good time for a fresh assessment of the discipline, where it has been, the status of various questions within it and its future prospects. Scott Hafemann pulls together a crack team of practitioners, scholars from the disciplines of both Old and New Testament studies, to give us a status report
