While Biblical Theology is often thought of as a discipline engaged in primarily by Reformed scholars, it was developed as a distinct field of study from Dogmatic Theology by Lutheran authors in Germany beginning in the mid-nineteenth century. This volume is among the first books on the subject published in English, as Weidner summarizes the thoughts of various German Lutherans, while offering several of his own insights.
Biblical Theology discusses the progress of God's revelation throughout the Biblical narrative. Throughout, Weidner argues against critics who view the Bible as the product of natural religious development, rather than an inspired text. This first volume covers the entirety of the Old Testament.
