Beyond the Bible: Moving from Scripture to Theology

Book Information

Provides a principled way of moving from Scripture to its contemporary understanding and application. How can Christians today move from what the Bible writers said to what we must say in contemporary theology? How can we think theologically in ways that are deeply grounded in an authoritative Scripture but not simply repeating what the biblical theologians said into their own contexts? In this book respected New Testament scholar I. Howard Marshall makes some creative and important proposals to help us move 'beyond the Bible' without leaving the Bible behind. He examines how principles can be established from Scripture, whether explicitly or implicitly, and explores how the continuing development of insight can provide us with guidelines for the ongoing task of developing and applying Christian theology. Rather than presenting Marshall's reflections as 'the final word' Beyond the Bible encourages a more dialogical approach to theological reflection by including responses from Kevin Vanhoozer and Stanley Porter. This is an important text for biblical scholars, theologians and preachers. - An intelligent answer to a tricky question - how can we apply the ancient text of the Bible to issues today? - Written by a leading biblical scholar. - Responses from leading Christian thinkers invite readers into a discussion rather than simply presenting 'the answer'.

For the evangelical readership to which this book is directed, the title Beyond the Bible may prove to be quite provocative. After all, as Marshall himself reaffirms time and again, evangelicals pride themselves on their biblical fealty. Potential evangelical readers may thus ask of Marshall, What more is needed beyond the Bible? To this Marshall responds with a highly accessible and engaging introduction to the task of biblical interpretation through which he outlines the foundation of a progressive evangelical hermeneutic rooted in a developmental model of revelation. Based on three lectures delivered at Acadia Divinity College as part of the schools Hayward Lectureship, Beyond the Bible is the first book in the new series of Acadia Studies in Bible and Theology edited by Craig A. Evans and Lee Martin McDonald. A short preface by Marshall is followed by three chapters that correspond to the three lectures. These essays are then supplemented with responses (also adapted from lectures) by Kevin J. Vanhoozer and Stanley E. Porter. Although the Marshall essays are clearly the heart of this volume, the responses provide both thoughtful reactions to Marshall and constructive contributions in their own right. [Full Review]
