The disciplines of theology and biblical studies should serve each other, and they should serve both the church and the academy together.
But the relationship between them is often marked by misunderstandings, methodological differences, and cross-discipline tension. Theologian Hans Boersma here highlights five things he wishes biblical scholars knew about theology. In a companion volume, biblical scholar Scot McKnight reflects on five things he wishes theologians knew about biblical studies. With an irenic spirit as well as honesty about differences that remain, in these books Boersma and McKnight seek to foster understanding between their disciplines so they might once again serve hand in hand.
