Hi Kyle, just wondering what the rationale is for the book below to be categorised in Bible Commentaries rather than Systematic Theology? I'm sure there is a rationale, but it definitely describes itself as a systematic theology and, IMO, looks nothing like a Bible commentary - though I acknowledge that it's nothing like a traditional systematic either.

Fruchtenbaum, Arnold G. Israelology: The Missing Link in Systematic Theology. Rev. ed. Tustin, CA: Ariel Ministries, 1994.

This was produced 13 years ago and I have no idea why we classified it as a Bible Commentary.

It doesn't fit our definition of Systematic Theology resources since it doesn't cover all of the traditional breadth of topics in a single volume Systematic Theology book or is it part of a series that does the same.

We're exploring expanding both our Biblical Theology and Systematic Theology categories to identify and categorize resources that cover a single slice of the larger genre. I'm guessing it will be something along the lines of Theological Monograph or something like that. This is a title that will fall nicely in that category.

Until then I'll have to change it to a Monograph.

Yes, that is interesting. A Theological Monograph seems to make sense. Thanks for your response.
