On Kevin Vanhoozer

Guy points us to Andreas Köstenberger’s extended review of Kevin Vanhoozer’s Drama of Doctrine, together with a good-natured response by Vanhoozer.

The Drama of Doctrine is an extraordinary work – probably the most important study of the hermeneutics of doctrine since Lindbeck. To be honest, I read this some time ago with the intention of posting a review here at F&T – but I still haven’t found the energy to review it. I found it a difficult book to review – it’s so big and ambitious and wide-ranging that it’s hard to know what to say about it. But seeing Köstenberger’s review (as well as earlier reviews by Guy and Michael) makes me feel very lazy. So I’ll try to come up with a review of it within the next month or so.

Update: Be sure also to see Guy’s delightful new post on the dangers of The Drama of Doctrine – there’s an important lesson here for all of us about Library Safety....
