Engage in both concentrated biblical exegesis and meaningful theological reflection with Two Horizons Commentary. Without slighting the significance of philological, historical, and social-scientific questions, scholars in this series focus their primary interests on theological readings of texts, past and present. Authors discuss each book in relation to the whole of Scripture, asking what it specifically contributes to biblical theology. The result is a paragraph-by-paragraph engagement with the text that is deliberately theological in focus.
Edited by Craig G. Bartholomew, J. Gordon McConville (Old Testament) and Joel B. Green (New Testament), the theological reflection in each Two Horizons Commentary takes on many forms, including locating each biblical book in relation to the whole of Scripture - asking what the book contributes to biblical theology - and in conversation with constructive theology of today. How commentators engage in the work of theological reflection will differ from volume to volume, depending on their particular theological tradition and how they perceive the work of biblical theology and theological hermeneutics. This heterogeneity derives as well from the relative infancy of the project of theological interpretation of Scripture in modern times and from the challenge of grappling with a book's message in its ancient context, in the canon of Scripture and history of interpretation, and for life in the admittedly diverse Western world at the beginning of the twenty-first century.
The Two Horizons Commentary is written primarily for students, pastors, and other Christian leaders seeking to engage in theological interpretation of Scripture.
