14 - The Threefold Cord: Theology, Ethics, and Praxis


Unlike in my large study of NT theology and ethics, The Indelible Image, I have not tried in this work to deal in detail with the intertwined nature of theology and ethics in the Bible. I have rather focused on a way of looking at biblical theology that is faithful to its symbolic universe, its narrative thought world, and its theologizing proper. But I would be remiss if I did not give some attention to how this theologizing intersects with the ethics and praxis urged in the Bible.
