Theologians have discoursed over and offered various interpretations on the nature, function, method and scope of New Testament theology. Many of these approaches have resulted in tension and confusion amongst scholars and students. Gerhard Hasel addresses this situation with an in-depth discussion of the basic issues of the debate. Beginning with a comprehensive survey of the emergence and development of New Testament theology over the last two centuries, he examines numerous issues which have led to the present state of crisis in this area. Hasel examines the issues related to methodology, to the unity of the New Testament, and to the relationship between the New and the Old Testaments. He concludes with some basic proposals for doing theology with an historical and theological method which seeks to be faithful to the biblical material. George Ladd, from Fuller Theological Seminary, says of Hasel’s book: “As a prolegomena to New Testament theology, this book has no peers.”
