Canonical Theology: The Biblical Canon, Sola Scriptura, and Theological Method

  • Author: John C. Peckham
  • Publisher: Eerdmans
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Pages: 309

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

What are the roles of canon and community in the understanding and articulation of 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 examines 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.

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.

John C. Peckham is associate professor of theology and Christian philosophy at the Theological Seminary of Andrews University, Berrien Springs, Michigan. He is also the author of The Love of God: A Canonical Model.

The Apocalyptic Imagination: An Introduction to Jewish Apocalyptic Literature 3rd Edition

  • Author: John J. Collins
  • Edition: 3rd
  • Publisher: Eerdmans
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Pages: 456

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

One of the most widely praised studies of Jewish apocalyptic literature ever written, The Apocalyptic Imagination by John J. Collins has served for over thirty years as a helpful, relevant, comprehensive survey of the apocalyptic literary genre.

After an initial overview of things apocalyptic, Collins proceeds to deal with individual apocalyptic texts—the early Enoch literature, the book of Daniel, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and others—concluding with an examination of apocalypticism in early Christianity. Collins has updated this third edition throughout to account for the recent profusion of studies germane to ancient Jewish apocalypticism, and he has also substantially revised and updated the bibliography.

Collins’s volume will justifiably remain one of the primary introductions to Jewish apocalyptic literature.

The Bible in the Contemporary World: Hermeneutical Ventures

  • Author: Richard Bauckham
  • Publisher: Eerdmans
  • Publication Date: 2015
  • Pages: 192

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

A crucial responsibility for Christian interpreters of Scripture, says Richard Bauckham, is to understand our contemporary context and to explore the Bible's relevance to it in ways that reflect serious critical engagement with that context. In this book Bauckham models how this task can be carried out.

Bauckham calls for our reading of Scripture to lead us to greater engagement with critical issues in today’s world, including globalization, environmental degradation, and widespread poverty. He works to bring biblical texts to bear on these contemporary realities through the Bible's metanarrative of God and the world, according to which God's purpose takes effect in the blessing and salvation and fulfillment of the world as his cherished creation.

The work of a master theologian, these magnificent essays are a joy to read. They combine judicious balance, practical relevance, and theological wisdom. . . . A superb collection that amply repays study.

The Spirituality of Wine

  • Author: Gisela H. Kreglinger
  • Publisher: Eerdmans
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Pages: 300

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In this book Gisela Kreglinger offers a fresh, holistic vision of the Christian life that sees God at work in all created things, including vineyards, the work of vintners, and the beauty of well-crafted wine shared with others around a table. Kreglinger begins by examining wine in the Bible, in the history of the church, and in the Lord's Supper, and these reflections culminate in a theology of joy and feasting that celebrates the human senses as gifts for tasting the goodness of God.

In the second part of the book Kreglinger brings Christian spirituality and the world of wine together in new ways, exploring such matters as technology and wine- crafting, the health benefits of wine, alcohol abuse, consumerism, and soul care. Her discussion is enriched by interviews with thirty vintners from around the world as well as her own experience growing up on a family winery in Bavaria.

This unique book is one that Gisela Kreglinger is unusually qualified to write. Belonging to a family of vintners and growing up in a winery have given her a deep affinity with her subject. She writes about wine and the crafting of wine with loving understanding. This is, as it were, the soil in which the vines of her study of Scripture and the Christian spiritual tradition have grown and borne fruit. . . . In Kreglinger’s hands wine becomes the key to a spirituality that rejects false dualisms of matter and spirit and inspires the healing of the earth on the way to God's new creation of all things.

—Richard Bauckham, University of St. Andrews

Gisela H. Kreglinger grew up on a winery in Franconia, Germany; her family has been crafting wine for many generations. She holds a PhD in historical theology from the University of St. Andrews, and she taught Christian spirituality for four years before turning to writing full-time.

What Do You Seek?: The Questions of Jesus as Challenge and Promise

  • Author: Michael J. Buckley
  • Publisher: Eerdmans
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Pages: 158

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Throughout the Gospels, Jesus asks a lot of questions—questions that challenge and unsettle. Questions that cut to the heart of human experience. Questions that—like a plow plunging deep into hard soil—split life open.

In this book distinguished theologian Michael Buckley meditates on fourteen key personal questions that Jesus asks in the Gospel of John—such questions as “What do you seek?” “Do you know what I have done to you?” “How can you believe?” “Do you take offense at this?” “Do you love me?”

Readers of Buckley’s What Do You Seek? will be challenged anew by the searching, probing questions of Jesus.

Michael Buckley’s lovely little book of meditations on the questions of Jesus drips with his life’s scholarly learning, but with such a light touch that the reader is drawn ever more deeply into the question with which the book opens: What do you seek? This is a modern classic in the Ignatian tradition—accessible, memorable, and profound.

—Sarah Coakley, University of Cambridge

Michael J. Buckley, SJ, is Bea Professor of Theology at Santa Clara University, having previously taught philosophical theology at Boston College, the University of Notre Dame, and the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley.

Women in the Story of Jesus: The Gospels through the Eyes of Nineteenth-Century Female Biblical Interpreters

  • Authors: Heather E. Weir and Marion Ann Taylor
  • Publisher: Eerdmans
  • Publication Date: 2016
  • Pages: 288

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

This volume gathers the writings of thirty-one nineteenth-century women on the stories of women in the Gospels—Mary and Martha, Anna, the Samaritan woman at the well, Herodias and Salome, Mary Magdalene, and more. Retrieving and analyzing rarely read works by Christina Rossetti, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Elizabeth Wordsworth, and many others, Women in the Story of Jesus illuminates the biblical text, recovers a neglected chapter of reception history, and helps us understand and apply Scripture in our present context.

In this superb anthology we hear from a veritable cloud of witnesses: women preachers, educators, biblical commentators, suffragists, social activists, novelists, and poets. These female biblical interpreters—most of them previously overlooked by scholars—can now be restored to their rightful place in the history of New Testament interpretation.

Written to Be Heard: Recovering the Messages the Gospels

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Recovers the lost messages of Mark, Matthew, Luke-Acts, and John for people today

The words of the gospels were meant to be heard. While we can still appreciate the construction and grasp some understanding when we read, we miss much of the message because we’re working in the wrong medium. In Written to Be Heard Paul Borgman and Kelly James Clark offer the keys to recovering the radical, relevant messages of each gospel as they were first heard.

The shaping of the gospels for oral performances, which would have been obvious to ancient (mostly preliterate) listeners, is lost on even the best contemporary reader. With careful analysis of the gospel writers’ particular voices within their own ancient literary context, Borgman and Clark equip readers to read as if hearing, focusing on overlapping patterns of hearing cues that shape each text and embed theological perspective.

Paul Borgman is professor emeritus of English at Gordon College and the author of The Way according to Luke: Hearing the Whole Story of Luke-Acts.

Kelly James Clark is senior research fellow at the Kaufman Interfaith Institute at Grand Valley State University; his many other books include Written to Be Heard, Return to Reason, and When Faith Is Not Enough.
