The aim of this collection, which documents the same international conference (2009) at the Krupp-Kolleg in Greifswald, is formulating new perspectives "Biblical theology" against the background of previous results. Starting points offer the first sum of the respective theological disciplines: Old and New Testament and Systematic Theology. From here, treat the individual contributions various issues to consider both controversy and the foundations and perspectives on sources beyond the canon. The contributed from various theological disciplines approaches be integrated into an interdisciplinary conversation between exegesis and systematic and open up almost encyclopedic theological view on the topic of "Biblical Theology." Additionally, there are guidelines for an international and intergenerational discussion, since both established and renowned scientists and young researchers from Germany, England, the Netherlands, Scotland, Sweden and the U.S. are involved. The authors deal with paradigmatic approaches across sources and concrete issues, but also with hermeneutic estimates and cross-cutting issues in the current debate. Focal points, mark beside one Psaltertheologie, questions of reception of biblical themes and texts, the validity and kerygmatic programmatic gesamtbiblischer approaches and especially the controversy between the European, German especially, and North American discussion pertaining to the topic.
