Which do you prefer, and what is a good book for each of those theologies to use?
A book I found helpful that tied these things together and focused on method is Richard A. Muller's The Study of Theology. http://amzn.com/0310410010
Although I have not read it, I have heard good things about Kelly Kapic's A Little Book for New Theologians http://amzn.com/0830839755
I hope that helps.
I prefer biblical theology. Here is what I have posted about it in the past on other threads:
Perhaps the OP could define, in his own words, these varying fields for us.
Millard J Erickson's Volume Systematic Theology
Magnifying God in Christ
Dominion and Dynasty: A Biblical Theology of the Hebrew Bible (New Studies in Biblical Theology)
Historical Theology: An Introduction to Christian Doctrine
I'll add Norman Geisler.
A. H. Strong (SBC) wrote a three-volume theology clocking in at 1,166 pages, which was later reissued as a single volume. I have a PDF facsimile of it, but the print is too tiny and the content too dense to tackle reading on the computer. I also have a PDF copy reformatted for reading on Kindle type devices, which comes in at an astounding 3,736 pages. I'm not ashamed to say that I'll probably never get around to reading it.
Curious if you truly understand what the discipline of biblical theology is as opposed to the other disciplines such as historical, exegetical, or systematic.
Historical would be the theology as it has ben defined throughout history by Christians, such as in creeds/confessions etc
Bilical would trace the history of various doctrines from start to finishing in Bible, to see how the bible itself developed more theology over time
systematic would be a summary of all doctrines in a systematic fashion, praying one chapter, salvation, bible inspiration etc!
Curious if you always ask arrogant questions of people you really don't know, or not?
It was a fair question for you. Why cast aspersions on him when none were made on you? Methinks you are a bit too defensive --or even arrogant TND.
Oh for Luck's sake......too much, just too much.:BangHead:
