There is no doubting the legacy of the Protestant Reformers and their successors. Luther, Calvin, and Wesley not only spawned specific denominational traditions, but their writings have been instrumental in forging a broadly embraced evangelical theology as well. In this volume, Ben Witherington wrestles with some of the big ideas of these major traditional theological systems (sin, God's sovereignty, prophecy, grace, and the Holy Spirit), asking tough questions about their biblical foundations. Witherington argues that evangelicalism sometimes wrongly assumes a biblical warrant for some of its more popular beliefs, and, further, he pushes the reader to engage the larger story and plot of the Bible to understand these central elements of belief.

Excellent book--great detailed exegesis, restrained conclusions, and trys to find a common middle ground. Recommended.

Crítica de los usuarios - Marcar como inapropiado

Material of 'Jesus the Seer' - pp. 96-
p. 97 - ANE prophecy recognisable cross-culturally
p. 99 - prophecy is non-exegetical
p. 103 - Revelation is not exegesis but metaphorical telling of
visions by mind saturated with OT
p. 105 - largely agrees with Fiorenza that prophecy = apocalyptic
