Four Views on Moving Beyond the Bible to Theology guides students and pastors to consider and evaluate the various ways Christians apply biblical texts to contemporary questions. Four different scholars present their preferred interpretive models in point-counterpoint style, and three additional authors follow with their own perspectives on questions of moving from Scripture to theology.

  • ^^^How can Bible teachers approach the same text and draw different applications for today's life of faith?
  • How can Christians take opposing sides on contemporary issues, each side claiming their position best follows the biblical witness?
Such questions drive the discussion in Four Views on Moving Beyond the Bible to Theology . Scholars who affirm an inspired, relevant, and authoritative Bible each present an interpretive model they consider most faithful to biblical teaching:
  • Walter C. Kaiser, Jr.: A Principlizing Model
  • Daniel M. Doriani: A Redemptive-Historical Model
  • Kevin J. Vanhoozer: A Drama-of-Redemption Model -
  • William J. Webb: A Redemptive-Movement Model
Each view receives three critiques, one from each proponent of the other positions. Due to the far-reaching implications this topic holds for biblical studies, theology, and church teaching, Four Views on Moving Beyond the Bible to Theology also includes reflections from three additional perspectives: Christopher J. H. Wright, Mark L. Strauss, and Al Wolters. Four Views on Moving Beyond the Bible to Theology empowers readers to identify, evaluate, and refine their own approach to moving from the Bible to theology.

The Bible has long served as the standard for Christian practice, yet believers still disagree on how biblical passages should be interpreted and applied. Only when readers fully understand the constructs that inform their process of moving from Scripture to theology?and those of others?can Christians fully evaluate teachings that claim to be ?biblical.? Here, scholars who affirm an inspired Bible, relevant and authoritative for every era, present models they consider most faithful to Scripture: - Walter C. Kaiser, Jr.: A Principlizing Model - Daniel M. Doriani: A Redemptive-Historical Model - Kevin J. Vanhoozer: A Drama-of-Redemption Model - William J. Webb: A Redemptive-Movement Model Each position also receives critiques from the proponents of the other views. Moreover, due to the far-reaching implications this topic holds for biblical studies, theology, and church teaching, this book includes three additional reflections by Christopher J. H. Wright, Mark L. Strauss, and Al Wolters on the theological and practical interpretation of biblical texts. Four Views on Moving beyond the Bible to Theology empowers readers to identify, evaluate, and refine their own approach to moving from the Bible to theology.
