A dynamic array of scholars here inspects the role of the Reformed confessional tradition in the reading and interpretation of Scripture. Written by contributors not only from the West but also from Hungary, Romania, India, South Africa, and China, these essays recognize the influence of one??'s context in doing exegetical work. Wide-ranging and lucid, Reformed Theology: Identity and Ecumenicity II is an excellent resource for readers looking to examine current biblical and theological trends in Reformed thought.
