Would love to see this new commentary series from B & H Academic in Logos Bible Software!

Here's the Hebrews volume coming about by Dr. Tom Schreiner in early February.

Here's info on the series:

Beginning in 2015, B&H launches “Biblical Theology for Christian Proclamation,” a new 40-volume commentary series covering all Old and New Testament books. T. Desmond Alexander, Thomas R. Schreiner, and Andreas J. Köstenberger serve as general editors for the series and James M. Hamilton, Kenneth A. Mathews, and Terry L. Wilder serve as assistant general editors. The first volume by Schreiner on Hebrews releases in February 2015.

From the series preface:

“The present set of volumes constitutes an ambitious project, seeking to explore the theology of the Bible in considerable depth, spanning both Testaments. Authors come from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives, though all affirm the inerrancy and inspiration of Scripture. United in their high view of Scripture, and in their belief in the underlying unity of Scripture, which is ultimately grounded in the unity of God himself, each author explores the contribution of a given book or group of books to the theology of Scripture as a whole. While conceived as stand-alone volumes, each volume thus also makes a contribution to the larger whole. All volumes provide a discussion of introductory matters, including the historical setting and the literary structure of a given book of Scripture. Also included is an exegetical treatment of all the relevant passages in succinct commentary-style format. The biblical theology approach of the series will also inform and play a role in the commentary proper. The commentator permits a discussion between the commentary proper and the biblical theology that it reflects by a series of cross-references.

The major contribution of each volume, however, is a thorough discussion of the most important themes of the biblical book in relation to the canon as a whole. This format allows each contributor to ground Biblical Theology, as is proper, in an appropriate appraisal of the relevant historical and literary features of a particular book in Scripture while at the same time focusing on its major theological contribution to the entire Christian canon in the context of the larger salvation-historical metanarrative of Scripture. Within this overall format, there will be room for each individual contributor to explore the major themes of his or her particular corpus in the way he or she sees most appropriate for the material under consideration.

This format, in itself, would already be a valuable contribution to Biblical Theology. But there are other series that try to accomplish a survey of the Bible’s theology as well. What distinguishes the present series is its orientation toward Christian proclamation. This is the Biblical Theology for Christian Proclamation commentary series! As a result, the ultimate purpose of this set of volumes is not exclusively, or even primarily, academic. Rather, we seek to relate Biblical Theology to our own lives and to the life of the church. Our desire is to equip those in Christian ministry who are called by God to preach and teach the precious truths of Scripture to their congregations, both in North America and in a global context.”

though all affirm the inerrancy and inspiration of Scripture.

Wouldn't it be interesting if these two things weren't what people insist they are?

Mt. 26:17, Mk. 14:12, Lk. 22:7...these verses, along with context that accompanies them, are not inerrant...they are impossible by definition. There is no way to reconcile what is being said--what is said is simply impossible by Biblical definition. Even more, all three synoptics agree in presenting this impossible error. And that...is just the beginning...

Not to get into a discussion that belongs on ChristianDiscourse but you do realize that there are several different definitions of these terms representing different historical threads of theology.

7. Biblical Hermeneutics in the Period of “Orthodoxy.” None of the Reformers had ever defended the verbal inerrancy of Scripture. However, their theological successors, among them Johannes Andreas Quenstedt (1617–1688) and Abraham Calovius (1612–1686), defended the verbal inspiration of the entire Bible and developed the principle of biblical infallibility. For these thinkers, the Bible was identical with the Word of God and thus as text the infallible foundation of a set of dogmatic convictions. Although all these theologians reached dogmatic statements by using the same rationalistic method, these statements of “orthodoxy” often differed significantly.

Werner G. Jeanrond, “Interpretation, History of: History of Biblical Hermeneutics,” ed. David Noel Freedman, The Anchor Yale Bible Dictionary (New York: Doubleday, 1992), 438.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Yes, I do...but most folks who make a point of "making a point" to assert these two ideas as a matter of creedal self-identification have a sense of the words that is indefensible. And, they toss this concept around as a kind of doctrinal trump card, as if by saying it, nothing that is said afterwards can be rightly contested. The irony oozes.

Most volumes have a kindle version at 9.99-  they would have to keep the price reasonable to promote these.

I agree. I can't understand why Logos hasn't begun to put this series into production. Such a great series. Please LOGOS bring the Biblical Theology for Christian Proclamation commentary set to your platform!
