Product Description

What is the role of canon and community respectively when it comes to understanding and articulating Christian doctrine? Should the church be the doctrinal arbiter in the twenty-first century? In Canonical Theology John Peckham tackles this complex, ongoing discussion by shedding light on issues surrounding the biblical canon and the role of the community for theology and practice.

Peckham addresses the relationship of canon, community, and theology by examining the nature of the biblical canon, the proper relationship of Scripture and tradition, and the interpretation and application of Scripture for theology. He lays out a compelling canonical approach to systematic theology—including an explanation of his method, a step-by-step account of how to practice it, and an example of what theology derived from this canonical approach looks like.

Editorial Reviews

Kevin J. Vanhoozer
—Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
"Canonical Theology by John Peckham makes three timely and important contributions: first, it gives a robust account of what Peckham calls 'canonical sola Scriptura'; second, it sets forth a clarifying analysis of the difference between the concepts 'intrinsic' and 'communitarian' as applied to the canon, including a number of compelling arguments as to why the former is superior; third, it provides a platform on which exegetes, biblical theologians, and systematic theologians can meet, hopefully to fellowship and work toward an integrative theological method. In sum, Peckham has written what is perhaps the best account to date of what 'canonical theology' ought to mean and why it matters."

Craig G. Bartholomew
—from the foreword
"Peckham takes hold of one of the most pressing issues facing the church today, and does so clearly, with a refreshing and astonishingly wide range of engagement, pushing toward the conclusion that Scripture is intrinsically authoritative as the Word of God."
