Description: The Biblical Theology for Christian Proclamation commentary series explores the theology of the Bible in considerable depth, spanning both Testaments. General Editors include T. Desmond Alexander, Andreas J. Kostenberger and Thomas R. Schreiner with contributing authors from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives, though all affirm the inerrancy and inspiration of Scripture. United in their belief in the underlying unity of Scripture, each author explores the contribution of a given book or group of books to the theology of Scripture as a whole. All volumes provide a discussion of introductory matters, including the bookís historical setting and the literary structure. Also included is an exegetical treatment of all the relevant passages in succinct commentary-style format.
The major contribution of each volume, however, is a thorough discussion of the most important themes of the biblical book in relation to the canon as a whole. This format, in itself, would already be a valuable contribution to biblical theology. But there are other series that try to accomplish a survey of the Bibleís theology as well. What distinguishes the present series is its orientation toward Christian proclamation. As a result, the ultimate purpose of this set of volumes is not exclusively, or even primarily, academic. Rather, we seek to relate biblical theology to our own lives and to the life of the church. Our desire is to equip those in Christian ministry who are called by God to preach and teach the precious truths of Scripture to their congregations.
