About-

Scripture has always played an important role in Christian theology. This study provides an issue oriented overview of the concepts of Scripture in Protestant theology from the 16th century Reformation onward. It then sets forth the concepts of Scripture in the theologies of two contemporary systematic theologians: W. Pannenberg and D. G. Bloesch. It analyzes, compares and evaluates the theological and anthropological presuppositions that have influenced their concept of Scripture. Despite fundamentally different starting points and other significant distinctions Pannenberg and Bloesch reveal surprising similarities. This seems to suggest that for both the concept of Scripture is determined ultimately by presuppositions that are derived and shaped "extra scripturam".

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Perhaps the most impressive feature of his dissertation is the thoroughness of the research, both with respect to the writings of Pannenberg and Bloesch and in terms of the broad range of theological responses to their positions as a whole, as well as their views on Scripture. The author has consulted virtually every piece of writing in all the pertinent languages. The dissertation is well constructed and its arguments clearly developed. It is reader-friendly--clearly written in a style quite easy to read...."

Prof. Dr. Carl E. Braaten, Professor of Systematic Theology, Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago


"...Hasel's dissertation is especially noteworthy...for its clear, balanced, accurate, and thorough going portrayal. It is the definitive work on its topic..."

Prof. Dr. Kenneth A. Strand, Professor Emeritus of Church History and Co-director of the Ph.D./Th.D. Programs, Andrews University, Berrien Springs.
