What's been happening in the biblical theology movement in recent years? Craig Bartholomew, Mary Healy, Karl Muller, Anthony Thistleton, Robin Parry, Richard Bauckman, Gerald Bray, Andrew Lincoln, and others contribute essays on major themes and topics, important contemporary thinkers (Protestant and Catholic), and the relationship to preaching.
Biblical theology is crucial if we are to grasp the whole of the Bible and to do so on its own terms. In this fifth volume of the Scripture and Hermeneutics series, the authors turn their attention to biblical theology and its importance for biblical interpretation.
