#4 - So Wide a Sea: Essays on Biblical and Systematic Theology

PART OF SERIES Text Reader Series
1991, 145 pp

The relation between biblical and systematic theology is once again the subject of vigorous debate. In the volume, biblical scholars and systematic theologians enter into this debate which has significant consequences for theological education and the church. The book's title derives from Gabriel Biel's observation, five hundred years ago, that Scripture is "so wide a sea." Since then, this sea has sometimes divided biblical and systematic theologians. The authors make a significant contribution to understanding and bridging this division.
