Will belief in the authority and inspiration of the Scriptures be undermined if biblical theology is interpreted in the framework of modern science and biblical criticism? Many theologians believe it will, but Dale Moody skillfully demonstrates in this important work how the historical-critical study of the Scripture can relate the Scriptures to modern science and society.
According to Moody, his study represents a conscious effort to bring together the insights of several disciplines in a constructive harmony which is both biblical and systematic. Biblical theology, modern science, various types of biblical criticism (textual, source, form, redaction), historical theology, and the history of doctrine – all these have a significant part of play in the development of a systematic theology. . . . Those who fear that using the findings of modern science and the critical-historical method of Bible study is inevitably uncongenial to a strong view of biblical authority will, I hope, find the explorations of this book a pleasant surprise.
Ecumenical in its approach, this study will appeal to Christians of all traditions.
