This title includes essays and examples of theological commentary on biblical passages from leading scholars in the field. This volume will contain examples of theological commentary written by systematic or biblical theologians who share deep concern for the Reformed scripture principle. Within the guild of dogmatic theology careful engagement with the biblical text and, furthermore, with biblical theology and historical exegesis in a consistent and faithful manner is a crying need of the hour. To spur on theologians to biblically-shaped thinking and to encourage biblical scholars to consider dogmatic implications of texts read within the church's traditions, this volume will include essays on critical passages related to a number of key doctrinal loci (e.g., Colossians 3 and deification, Exodus 3 and divine transcendence). Contributors have been and will be solicited for their proven ability to integrate biblical exegesis and dogmatic extrapolation. Inevitably, chapters will vary in emphasis and according to the talents and interests of their authors. Nevertheless, a continual conversation between Bible, tradition, and constructive formulation will mark each essay. This multi-author collection, then, will combine strong thematic coherence with individual variety.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Thetwofold task skilfully undertaken in this volume should inspire all Christians: first, to practice reading Scripture unabashedly as God's self-revelation withChrist Jesus at its center, while benefiting from historical-critical research;second, to do so from within the (ecclesial) act of faith and thus from adogmatic perspective - in this case, by and large, Reformed dogmatics.Michael Allen is to be commended for his visionof theological renewal.' - MatthewLevering, University of Dayton, USA--,
'This excellent collection brings together some fine examples of theological interpretation at work on particular biblical texts, along with some sympathetic assessments of the prospects for reading Scripture theologically. Each of the essays demonstrates exegetical finesse, theological alertness, and sensitivity to the spiritual dimensions of study of Scripture; taken together, they deserve a wide and attentive readership.' - Professor John Webster DD FRSE, King's College, University of Aberdeen, UK.--Sanford Lakoff
