Explore biblical theology from a canonical standpoint with Brevard Childs’ classic Old Testament Theology in a Canonical Context
Stuhlmacher’s How To Do Biblical Theology is a welcome corrective to the popular tendency to introduce false disjunctions into the practice of biblical theology. Critical scholars of the Bible would be aided by adopting his procedure of using the Christian canon as the starting point of biblical theology.
