FALLING IN LOVE WITH THE BARREL, OR CRITICALLY INVESTIGATING IT?

Abstract


In this article Nürnberger’s project to develop a theology of the biblical witness2 is
lauded for its insistence on the dynamism of the biblical text that cannot be captured
in any one specific historical context. However, it is also indicated in this article
that Nürnberger often falls prey to those dangers that he himself has indicated. It is
agued that his approach imposes “from above” a heuristic framework onto the
biblical witnesses which is too selective, optimistic and linear.
