This pioneering work bridges the long-standing gap between biblical studies and theology. In Between Two Horizons prominent scholars constructively discuss the relationship of biblical studies to the task of doing theology in our contemporary context. Though serving as as excellent text in its own right, this volume also introduces the forthcoming Two Horizons Commentary series-a completely new kind of commentary on the New Testament designed to reintegrate biblical studies with contemporary theology in the service of the church.
This book constructively explores the question: What effects should an interest in theology produce in the reading of Scripture?Since the onset of historical consciousness in biblical studies over two centuries ago, the work of biblical exegetes and systematic theologians have largely followed two paths. In this book, nine prominent scholars work to bridge the longstanding gap between biblical studies and theology by concentrating on the nature of a biblical hermeneutics approach to doing theology. The range of concerns presented by these scholars seeks to reintegrate biblical exegesis with contemporary theology in the service of the church.
