After Calvin

Author: Richard Alfred Muller
Publisher: Oxford University Press on Demand
ISBN: 9780195157017
Release Date: 2003
Genre: Religion

This is a sequel to Richard Muller's The Unaccomodated Calvin OUP 2000). In the previous book, Muller attempted to situate Calvin's theological work in their historical context and to strip away various twentieth-century theological grids that have clouded our perceptions of the work of the Reformer. In the present book, Muller carries this approach forward, with the goal of overcoming a series of nineteenth- and twentieth-century theological frameworks characteristic of much of the scholarship on Reformed orthodoxy, or what might be called "Calvinism after Calvin."

The Study of Theology

Author: Richard A. Muller
Publisher: Zondervan
ISBN: 9780310410010
Release Date: 1991-01
Genre: Religion

The Study of Theology address two major concerns -- the place of biblical hermeneutics and practical theology. The author discusses the hermeneutical implications of biblical, historical, systematic, and practical theology and presents a case for the relationship between exegesis and the other theological disciplines. However, the relationship between hermeneutics and practical theology is also essential. According to the author, 'the traditional forms of theology and preaching frequently fail the tests of exegesis and contemporary theologizing while, at the same time, most contemporary theology and exegesis fails to address directly the needs of the church.' Muller presents a case for the structure of hermeneutics and argues that it is essential to the church because 'theological training as a whole . . . ought to reflect the life of the church and be of value to the life of the church.'

Basics of Hebrew Discourse: A Guide to Working with Hebrew Narrative and Poetry by Matthew H. Patton, Frederick Clarke Putnam, and Miles V. Van Pelt is a syntax resource for intermediate Hebrew students. This Basics book introduces students to the principles and exegetical benefits of discourse analysis (text linguistics) when applied to biblical Hebrew narrative and poetry. Where standard Hebrew reference grammars have traditionally worked to describe the relationship between words and phrases within discrete clauses (micro syntax), discourse analysis works to describe those relationships that exist between clauses and texts (macro syntax).
