This volume brings together some of the most distinguished writers in the field to provide an overview of discussions about the nature of New Testament theology.
The volume explores New Testament theology in three main ways. Firstly, it examines the development, purpose and scope of New Testament theology. It then goes on to examine the relationship of New Testament theology with other branches of theology, such as systematic theology, biblical theology, practical theology and social scientific criticism. Finally, it looks at crucial issues within the New Testament, such as the historical Jesus, the theology of the cross, eschatology, ethics and the role of women.
The book is dedicated to and honours the work of Robert Morgan, whose pioneering work gives it its title.
