By almost any measure, a bold and confident use of the Bible is a hallmark of Christianity. Underlying such use are a number of assumptions about the origin, nature and form of the biblical literature, concerning its authority, diversity and message.

About the Series
Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology focus on three areas: (1) the nature and status of biblical theology, including its relationship to other disciplines; (2) the articulation and exposition of the structure of thought from a particular biblical writer or text; and (3) the delineation of a biblical theme across the biblical corpus.
While volume notes interact with the best of recent research, the text of each work is uncluttered with untransliterated Greek and Hebrew or too much specialist jargon. The volumes are written within the framework of confessional evangelicalism, but they also engage a variety of other relevant viewpoints and significant literature. Above all, these volumes are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. New Studies in Biblical Theology aims simultaneously to instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.
