Scholars from biblical studies and theology have recently been engaged in various ways in the project of theological interpretation of Scripture, raising issues regarding the theological content of the biblical material, authorial intention, the reception and formation of the Bible as Christian Scripture, the importance of the canonical form of the text, and the relationship between Scripture and the Rule of Faith.
With this recent interdisciplinary debate in mind, the fourth volume from the Los Angeles Theology series, The Voice of God in the Text of Scripture: Explorations in Constructive Dogmatics, focuses on the theological and doctrinal dimensions to the biblical texts, drawing on scholars of biblical studies and theology in order to do so. Each author approaches the task of describing a doctrine of Scripture from their own angle of approach and expertise, and in dialogue with a variety of conversation partners. Organized by first principles to final purposes, this collection of essays follows an arc that suggests the overall shape of a doctrine of Scripture, framed by the question, "How does the voice of God come to us in the text of Scripture?"
Including contributions from William Abraham, Stephen Fowl, John Goldingjay, Amy Plantinga Pauw, Daniel Treier, and more, The Voice of God in the Text of Scripture represents the most recent theologically constructive accounts of the ways that God speaks by means of the biblical texts.
