Recent years have seen a growing interest (not to mention a growing body of literature) in the intersection of biblical studies and theology. Scripture’s Doctrine and Theology’s Bible stems from an illuminating symposium held at the University of St. Andrews that assembled a group of world-class biblical and systematic theologians to answer this fundamental question: To what extent, and on what grounds, does the New Testament shape and prescribe Christian theology?

As the contributors explore this question, they address the specific way in which the New Testament does or should shape dogmatics. Part 1 deals with how the Bible informs particular aspects of Christian doctrine and praxis. Part 2 examines how the New Testament has shaped influential theologians of the past century. Part 3 moves from analysis to synthesis, drawing a vision for the New Testament’s normative role in forming theology and ethics. Here is engaging dialogue for scholars in both biblical studies and theology, as well as their students.
