In Defense of Doctrine : Evangelicalism, Theology, and Scripture Paperback / softback

Part of the Emerging Scholars series


Questions surrounding the relationship of Scripture and doctrine are legion within the Protestant tradition.

This study is an apologetic for the ongoing, constructive theological task in Protestant and Evangelical traditions.

It suggests that doctrinal development can be explained as a hermeneutical phenomenon and that insights from hermeneutical philosophy and the philosophy of language can aid theologians in constructing explanatory theses for particular theological problems associated with the facts of doctrinal development, namely, questions related to textual authority, reality depiction, and theological identity.

Joining the recent call to theological interpretation of Scripture, Putman provides a constructive model that forwards a descriptive and normative pattern for reading Scripture and theological tradition together.
