There is a very good reason this volume is entitled “a” biblical theology. Obviously, there are a variety of ways one could write such a volume, and a variety of approaches one can take, not least because the matter is quite complex, and no two persons are going to read all the relevant texts in the same way. Simply trying to undertake this task has been a humbling experience. No wonder there have been whole generations of scholars who have avoided it like the plague! Who is sufficient for such things? And that question is all the more appropriate in an age of over-specialization and too few general practitioners of the reading and interpreting of the whole Bible.
