Product Description

After a lifetime of listening deeply and attentively to the full range of Scripture's testimony, respected biblical scholar John Goldingjay takes a step back and describes what he has seen and heard. In Biblical Theology: The God of the Christian Scriptures, Goldingjay constructs a theological cathedral that is laid out on the great vectors of Scripture and fitted with biblically sourced materials.

Using the New Testament as a portal into the biblical canon, Goldingjay seeks to preserve the distinct voices of Israel's Scriptures, accepting even its irregular and sinewed pieces as features rather than problems. Rather than superimposing a thematic core, he allows the narratives' diversity and tensions to remain as "manifold witnesses" to the ways of God.

Goldingjay frames his entire dialogue with the question, "What understanding of God and the world and life emerges from these two testaments?" With this structure, Goldingjay's Biblical Theology tests and expands the horizons of thought—his readers and his own—by the Scriptures rather than under the harsh lights of late-modern inquiry. What emerges is a landmark achievement—hermeneutically dextrous, biblically expansive, and nourishing to mind, soul, and proclamation.

Publisher's Description

Imagine someone who has spent a lifetime listening deeply and attentively to the full range of Scripture's testimony. Stepping back, they now describe what they have seen and heard. What emerges is a theological cathedral, laid out on the great vectors of Scripture and fitted with biblically sourced materials. This is what John Goldingay has done. Well known for his three-volume Old Testament Theology, he has now risen to the challenge of a biblical theology. While taking the New Testament as a portal into the biblical canon, he seeks to preserve the distinct voices of Israel's Scriptures, accepting even its irregular and sinewed pieces as features rather than problems. Goldingay does not search out a thematic core or overarching unity, but allows Scripture's diversity and tensions to remain as manifold witnesses to the ways of God. While many interpreters interrogate Scripture under the harsh lights of late-modern questions, Goldingay engages in a dialogue keen on letting Scripture speak to us in its own voice. Throughout he asks, "What understanding of God and the world and life emerges from these two testaments?" Goldingay's Biblical Theology is a landmark achievement—hermeneutically dexterous, biblically expansive, and nourishing to mind, soul and proclamation.

Author Bio

John Goldingay is David Allan Hubbard Professor of Old Testament at Fuller Theological Seminary. His many books include The Theology of the Book of Isaiah, Do We Need the New Testament? and commentaries on Psalms, Isaiah and Daniel. He has also authored the three-volume Old Testament Theology and the seventeen-volume Old Testament For Everyone series.

Editorial Reviews

"Those who study theology from the Bible up find themselves in tension with the classic systematic categories but rarely have the courage to venture into a full-scale theological scanning of the Bible's universe. John Goldingay is not only equipped for such a challenge, but has met it in a thunderous vision of nothing less than a biblical theology—one that unabashedly asks what the Bible says about God and human life. In an organic set of fresh categories, Goldingay offers the reader a new vision for theology, one that I hope will replace the crusty systematics that have silenced so much of the Bible's story."

—Scot McKnight, Julius R. Mantey Professor of New Testament, Northern Seminary

"What theological building might be constructed out of reading the scriptural materials? With characteristic enthusiasm, John Goldingay spends little time speculating on the shape of the building or probing what rights its prospective tenants have: he simply marches in and starts rearranging the furniture. Attentive readings offer fresh layouts and color schemes. The result is a book that is often happy to say what we do not know, imaginative in speaking of what we may know, and insistent in the call to turn and turn again to Scripture to shape all our knowing."

—Richard S. Briggs, lecturer in Old Testament, director of biblical studies, Cranmer Hall, St John's College, Durham University

"There are Old Testament theologies and New Testament theologies but very few biblical theologies. Yet, for Christians, the two testaments belong together. What Christian readers of Scripture need is biblical theology. So, while most scholars stay within their areas of specialization, John Goldingay boldly crosses all the boundaries scholars erect between different parts of the Bible and gives us what we need: a 'digest of the Scriptures,' as he calls it. His independence of mind ensures that his discussions are unpredictable and interesting. His lively and accessible style will make this a valuable resource for a wide readership."

—Richard Bauckham, emeritus professor of New Testament, University of St. Andrews

Editorial Reviews

"Goldingay's Biblical Theology provides an accessible digest of the OT and NT. It will be a benefit to any seminary’s library, and also will benefit a pastor who wants to preach biblical theology well to an audience with modern sensitivities. It is particularly helpful in placing more complex theological ideas into an accessible format for pastors and teachers."

-- H. H. Drake Williams III, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, Fall 2017
