Theology of the Biblical Witness

An evolutionary approach

By Klaus Nurnberger

The "Word of God" emerged and evolved as divine responses to changing human needs in biblical history. By tracing the historical trajectories of six paradigms of salvation, such as ex-odus, kingship and sacrifice, through a millennium of biblical history, Nurnberger reveals a vibrant current of meaning underlying the texts which expresses growing insight into God's redeptive intentions and which can be extrapolated in to the present predicaments of humankind. Klaus Nurnberger is professor emeritus for Systematic Theology and Theological Ethics at the University of Natal in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. His carreer has been devoted mainly to the underlying causes of world-wide socio-economic discrepancies and the relevance of the Christian faith in this regard.~
