Overview

Taken out of context, the Bible is constantly misrepresented. Biblical theology searches for the Bible’s over-arching message and interprets individual sections of Scripture through that lens. T&T Clark Studies in Biblical Theology and Theological Interpretation provides stepping stones for those new to studies of biblical theology, and insightful commentaries for people familiar with theological interpretation. These texts give readers the intellectual tools to take on more advanced theological concepts and interpret Scripture for themselves. For those questioning the merits of studying ancient Scripture in our modern world, New Testament Theology and Its Quest for Relevance offers a much-needed answer. Together, these four books make one of the most accessible theological studies available.

With the Logos edition of T&T Clark Studies in Biblical Theology and Theological Interpretation, these helpful reference tools automatically sync with your Logos library across all your devices, allowing you to study theology and theological interpretation anywhere. All Scripture references are tagged and appear in your preferred translation or original-language text on mouseover.

Theological Commentary: Evangelical Perspectives

  • Editor: R. Michael Allen
  • Publisher: T&T Clark
  • Publication Date: 2011
  • Pages: 232

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

This text provides a compilation of commentaries for the benefit of the church’s wisdom, witness, and worship. The book includes essays by R. Michael Allen, Henri Blocher, D. A. Carson, Michael Horton, Kelly M. Kapic, Andrew McGowan, R. W. L. Moberly, Daniel J. Treier, and Kevin Vanhoozer. Each essay addresses a specific passage of Scripture with the intention of helping Christians think more clearly about their lives in relation to the word of God.

This excellent collection brings together some fine examples of the theological interpretation at work on particular biblical texts, along with some sympathetic assessments of the prospects for reading Scripture theologically. Each of the essays demonstrates exegetical finesse, theological alertness, and sensitivity to the spiritual dimensions of study of Scripture; taken together, they deserve a wide and attentive readership.

Trinity, Revelation, and Reading: A Theological Introduction to the Bible and Its Interpretation

  • Author: Scott R. Swain
  • Publisher: T&T Clark
  • Publication Date: 2011
  • Pages: 168

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

This text focuses on the theological nature of the Bible and biblical interpretation. It seeks to answer the question, “What roles do Holy Scripture and the reading of Holy Scripture play within the unfolding drama of the commerce and communion between God and humanity?” Through exploring this question, the text builds a case for why the Bible is more than just words.

Clear and persuasive in argument, deeply read in classical and modern divinity, doctrinally and spiritually astute, this is a splendid theological presentation of the nature and interpretation of Scripture.

John Webster, professor of systematic theology, University of Aberdeen, Scotland

Simultaneously traditional and creative, this impressive volume offers a welcome introduction to Reformed dogmatics

Matthew Levering, professor of religious studies, University of Dayton

. . . a three-stranded cord for the theological interpretation of Scripture that is not easily bettered.

Introducing Biblical Theology

  • Author: Sigurd Grindheim
  • Publisher: T&T Clark
  • Publication Date: 2013
  • Pages: 280

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

This book is written specifically for students at the start of courses in the Bible, theology and ministry, and for those searching for a deeper understanding of the theology of the Bible. Grindheim draws on insights from scholarship and tradition to answer major theological questions in a highly accessible form using examples, revision questions, and charts.

For those readers of the Bible who want a synthesis of the theological teaching but find most of the existing books on the subject to be too demanding, this volume may well be just what they need: an introductory topical survey written in a simple and succinct form and covering all the major doctrines in both testaments.

I. Howard Marshall, emeritus professor of New Testament exegesis and honorary research professor, University of Aberdeen in Scotland

. . . a remarkably useful introduction to Biblical theology. The concise presentation of the material, the relevant questions, and competent answers that [Grindheim] presents commend his work highly. Students and pastors do not need another tome through which they must wade in order to gain an overview of Scripture. They need a compact handbook that directs them to the right questions and thus opens up further study. That is exactly what Grindheim has provided us.

Mark A. Seifrid, Mildred and Earnest Hogan Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

. . . in less than 250 pages of crystal clear prose, [Grindheim] lays out the theology of the Bible in a way that does justice both to the story-line of Scripture and to the creeds of Christian tradition . . . Grindheim soars over the whole canonical pyramid, discovering in the process the crucial pattern in the scriptural mosaic . . .

Kevin J. Vanhoozer, research professor of systematic theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois

Grindheim provides students of the Bible with the type of entry point into its teaching that every Christian needs.

Paul M. Hoskins, assistant professor of New Testament, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

[Introducing Biblical Theology] presents a seamless understanding of what the Bible proclaims, not just what others say about the Bible. It nonetheless reflects the finest scholarship . . .

Kenneth A. Mathews, professor of divinity, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University

Sigurd Grindheim teaches New Testament at Fjellhaug International University College in Norway. His other works include God’s Equal: What Can We Know about Jesus’ Self-Understanding? and Christology in the Synoptic Gospels: God or God’s Servant.
