For many New Testament scholars, these analogies will seem too unqualified,
while lay readers may find them jolting. But this simply underlines the huge gulfs
between the seminary, the sanctuary, and the street, which this volume seeks to ...

This is the startling theme of the Bible, which many find so re- pulsive, the
premise that the only visible sign of God's presence in the world is the cross.

Author: Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Publisher: Hendrickson Publishers
Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a thirty-nine year old pastor when the Nazis executed him for participating in a plot to overthrow Adolf Hitler. What caused this rather cerebral, well-educated, and philosophical young man to risk his life and reputation to stand with others against the brutality of the Nazis? Never before published in English, this newly translated compilation offers Bonhoeffer's meditations and essays about the Bible across his writing career. In addition excerpts from his letters and speeches provide a personal glimpse of one of the greatest theologians of the 20th century.

Author: Brevard S. Childs
Publisher: Fortress Press
This monumental work is the first comprehensive biblical theology to appear in many years and is the culmination of Brevard Child's lifelong commitment to constructing a biblical theology that surmounts objections to the discipline raised over the past generation. Childs rejects any approaches that overstress either the continuity or discontinuity between the Old and New Testaments. He refuses to follow the common pattern in Christian thought of identifying biblical theology with the New Testament's interest in the Old. Rather, Childs maps out an approach that reflects on the whole Christian Bible with its two very different voices, each of which retains continuing integrity and is heard on its own terms.
There is no new, New Testament church, for there is no new, New Testament.
There is no new, New Testament because there is no new sacrifice of Jesus.
There is no new sacrifice of Jesus because his blood has been shed on Calvary "

Author: Tat-siong Benny Liew
Publisher: Lexington Books
This volume addresses the problematic relationship between colonialism and the Bible. It does so from the perspective of the Global South, calling upon voices from Africa and the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific, and Latin America and the Caribbean. The contributors address the present state of the problematic relationship in their respective geopolitical and geographical contexts. In so doing, they provide sharp analyses of the past, the present, and the future: historical contexts and trajectories, contemporary legacies and junctures, and future projects and strategies. Taken together, the essays provide a rich and expansive comparative framework across the globe.

Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
Thomas H. Olbricht grew up in Churches of Christ, has taught in several of their universities, and has given religious lectures on six continents and in most states in the United States. He has met most leaders in Churches of Christ globally. He has been active in several religious and rhetoric societies and has worked with leaders in all these organizations to bring about changes over the past sixty years. C. Clifton Black and Duane F. Watson wrote about Olbricht, "Tom Olbricht possesses a memory of elephantine proportions. Not only does he have at his fingertips the names and places and dates; better than most he understands how the study of rhetoric has flourished among, while cross-pollinating, multiple disciplines in the humanities, classics, English, speech communication, and religion."

New Testament theology raises many questions, not only within its own boundaries, but also in relation to other fields such as history, literary criticism, sociology, psychology, history, politics, philosophy, and religious studies. But, the overarching question concerns the relevance of two thousand year old writings in today's world. How does one establish what is and is not relevant in the New Testament? How does one communicate the ancient ideas, presented in an alien language, alien time, and alien culture to a contemporary audience? This book is intended to serve as a methodological introduction to the field of New Testament theology, aimed at a range of readers-undergraduate and Seminary students, clergy, and laypersons interested in the relevance of scripture. It is a guide which aims to help readers understand how practitioners of New Testament theology have wrestled with the relationship between historical reconstruction of the New Testament, and its interpretation in the modern world.
