Biblical Theology for Christian Proclamation

Dr. D.A. Carson once noted that the greatest challenge faced by theologians is how to navigate the the tension between the Bible’s unity and diversity in a way that does justice to both. That is exactly what the Bible Theology for Christian Proclamation commentary series does.

Biblical theology is the attempt to understand and embrace the interpretive perspective of the biblical authors. What is more, biblical theology is the theology of the entire Bible, an exercise in whole-Bible theology.

This series does more than identify the theology that knits the entire Bible together. What makes it supremely useful for preachers and teachers is its orientation toward Christian proclamation. The editors of this work tell us its ultimate purpose is: “to equip those in Christian ministry who are called by God to preach and teach the precious truths of Scripture to their congregations, both in North America and in a global context.”

Each volume of the Biblical Theology for Christian Proclamation series offers a thorough introduction, detailed exposition, and a section on biblical and theological themes.

Thousands of Cross-Reference Links and Helpful Footnotes

Wordsearch makes this work even more useful than the original print volumes. The Bible continuously comments on itself, and all these cross-references are hyperlinks in Wordsearch, making it easy to quickly read and connect Bible verses. The footnotes are amazing. By hovering your cursor over each footnote, you’ll gain additional insight as the footnote text pops up. The volume on Romans alone has 1,549 of these footnotes!
