BUT THEN AGAIN, PERHAPS NOT…
AbstractThis review primarily examines the hermeneutical principles Nürnberger uses to bridge the gap between biblical theology and systematic theology. It argues that Nürnberger correctly identifies the task and problems facing theologians who wish to construct a critical, contextual theology without abandoning the biblical witness completely. He offers a suggestive metaphor, but his hermeneutical principles do not quite establish his conclusions. Instead, the review suggests, the conclusions owe their plausibility to the metaphor – and to the considerable wisdom and faith Nürnberger brings to the project. Perhaps we have no better resources when we deal with intractable problems.
