In pursuit of the oneness of scripture's scope, Brevard Childs (1923-2007) ranged across the Christian Bible, writing Introductions to the Old and New Testaments before attempting a landmark Biblical Theology of the same. For him the canon is a christological rule of faith, though perceiving the family resemblance in its historic formation and impress in the life of the church as well as, mysteriously, the synagogue, is always a great struggle. Yet Childs' argument for final form exegesis rose out of his form-critical training: Hermann Gunkel is a crucial antecedent. Childs' work has been much discussed, and in the wake of James Barr's criticism much misunderstood. Driver gives its total profile for the first time, from its background and controversy to its later development, analyzing all published titles and filling out this record with a number of previously unseen letters and papers.
This text provides the biblical basis for 52 doctrines, complete with topical and Scripture indexes. It is a revised and enlarged edition of a work originally published in 1926 and includes questions for discussion and review at the conclusion of each chapter.
How does a certain place influence the self? Could one argue that Paul's territoriality and mission strategies are Jerusalem-centered? Does the letter to the Romans, as an insight into Paul's mission strategy, reveal the apostle's central territorial paradigm and offer explanations for the creation of Paul's theology as it affects his mission? In dealing with these questions, Ksenija Magda analyzes if and how spatial theories developed by the geographer Robert D. Sack can be utilized for the clarification of long-standing questions in Pauline theology, for example his motivation to evangelize the Gentiles, the center of Paul's theology, the relationship to his own people and the origin of his doctrines on justification. In doing so, the author also shows how conflicting issues can be resolved.
William Robertson Smith (1846-1894) was successively the embattled champion of the emergent higher criticism as applied to the Old Testament, chief editor of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, and Professor of Arabic at Cambridge University. Today he is acknowledged to have been a pioneering figure in both social anthropology and the study of comparative religion, deeply influencing the thinking of J. G. Frazer, Emile Durkheim and Sigmund Freud. The first full-length biography of Robertson Smith to be published for almost a hundred years, this text makes use of hitherto unknown material preserved by the Smith family and draws upon the extensive range of correspondence between Smith and such scholars as Albrecht Ritschl, Paul de Lagarde, Julius Wellhausen, Abraham Kuenen and Theodor Noldeke. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, the biography locates and defines the place of this remarkable polymath within the context of Free Church Calvinism, the Scottish Enlightenment and 19th century German Protestant theology. It highlights Smith's interest in physics and philosophy, his friendship with contemporary artists, his Oriental travels, and his involvement in the social life of Edinburgh and Aberdeen. In recent years, the image of Smith as a comparative religionist has come to dominate all other perspectives and indeed tends now to overshadow his fame as an Old Testament scholar. This book seeks to redress the balance, aiming to discover the theological drive behind Smith's manifold activities.

Perfect for parents, perfect for teens,, perfect for parents and teens to read together.
Solomon is known as the wisest man who ever lived, and he wrote a significant portion of the Old Testament. His writings range from immensely practical, pithy proverbs to beautiful romantic poetry--and all are filled with his wisdom and insight. Yet behind those writings stood a flawed man, a man who was conflicted between deep wisdom and tragic folly. The king who warned against many sins did not follow his own advice, and wound up leading Israel into idolatry. Nevertheless, Solomon's life and writings provide valuable lessons for life in the twenty-first century.
"End of an Era" takes an in-depth look at the historical period beginning with Solomon's ascent to the throne of Israel and continuing through his tragic end. Studies focus largely on discovering the vital importance of wisdom, with close-up portraits of the wise woman, the foolish sluggard, and others. You will also find careful considerations of doctrinal themes, such as "Starting Strong, Finishing Strong" and "Wisdom from Above, Wisdom from Below."
