   schema:description "A scholar of Christology shows why a theologian must be a "master of Holy Writ," and why a biblical scholar must be a theologian. William M. Thompson makes a case for keeping theology and scriptural studies in fruitful combination and dialogue. The Struggle for Theology's Soul is a rehabilitation of the way theologians and biblical scholars practiced their craft in the greater history of the Church, but with a second naivete, having attempted to pass through the challenges of contemporary thought. It honors a certain kind of specialization of disciplines, but also argues that it is healthy to have works which are more integrative as well. Each style needs and corrects the other. Christology, argues the author, is at bottom a contest over Holy Writ, and this contest constitutes theology's soul because Christ is theology's center. --From publisher's description."@en ;
