The SCM Theological Commentary Series on the Bible is a ground-breaking series that recovers classical theological commentary for the 21st century church.
The commentaries presuppose the doctrinal tradition of the Christian church as a living and reliable basis for exegesis and are born out of the conviction that dogma clarifies rather than obscures. All 40 volumes will be authored by scholars whose primary expertise is systematic, historical or moral theology.
The series is intended for those working in the ministry as well as academics, providing them with guidance in reading the Bible under the rule of the Christian faith. Leaders of the classical church -Augustine, Aquinas, Calvin - read and interpreted the Bible theologically. They were convinced that the Bible witnesses to the gospel of Jesus Christ, and they assumed that the doctrinal tradition of the church can serve as a living and reliable guide for exegesis.
This series begins the recovery of such practice by enlisting leading theologians to read and interpret scripture for the 21st century, just as the church fathers, the Reformers, and other orthodox Christians did.
