Theology and the Mirror of Scripture is an important contribution that will be helpful to church members, pastors, and theologians interested in the evangelical ethos, constructive systematic theology, Protestant ecumenism, TIS, and the often forgotten evangelical ecclesiology.--Elmer A. Guzman, Andrews University Seminary Studies, Autumn 2016
In a wonderfully comprehensive and accessible manner, this book defines the essential elements of Evangelical theology, how Evangelical theology should be practiced by scholars, and how the Mere Evangelical movement can instantiate what Jesus and Paul are speaking about when they speak of 'the Church.'--Matthew Levering, Modern Theology, April 2017
Seasoned theologians will benefit from the wisdom--and call to wisdom--in this book. Theological educators will particularly want to put it in the hands of their students.--Nicholas G. Pitrowski, Evangelical Review of Theology
There are many reasons to recommend this book. In their survey of evangelical diversity, the authors demonstrate the difficulty of finding an evangelical core set of doctrines; they propose a way forward through a Trinitarian understanding of the gospel. It is refreshing to read a treatment of evangelical method that has a central place for the church, that calls evangelical theologians to be ecclesiologically grounded and centered. Their emphasis on ecumenism, by which they mean evangelical unity in the midst of denominational and theological diversity, is also refreshing. . . . This would be an excellent textbook for courses in theological method and a helpful resource for students, teachers, pastors, and others who take theology seriously.--Glenn R. Kreider, Criswell Theological Review, Spring 2016
Vanhoozer and Treier are, in short, much to be commended for their thought-provoking, lucid and compelling account. It packs a mighty punch, and easily stakes a claim to being one of the best introductions to the deeply Trinitarian and Christocentric theology underpinning the evangelical position. It is a volume deserving of a wide audience, not least in Anglican theological colleges.--Mark Smith, Churchman
What you could have in your hands is a delightfully rich treatment of evangelical TIS. Theology and the Mirror of Scripture is not a dessert after your meal, but a full course meal. And, it is good.--Joshua R. Farris, Scottish Bulletin of Evangelical Theology, Autumn 2016
