This book thus seeks to introduce the New Testament theologically without thereby producing a New Testament theology. In the opening chapter, I describe briefly how I understand the New Testament as a collection of theological writings. Here I introduce a simple model through which students and other readers can understand theology in different modes—cognitively, practically, and ethically. The intent of this model is to envision theology not so much as an academic discipline to be studied but rather as a dynamic process in which reflective believers can engage.

Because NT writings display a consistent interest in behavior, it is also necessary to take into account how these texts yield a lived theology. This is not simply a matter of identifying ethical instructions in the various writings or even identifying underlying ethical norms that are expressed in various ways. It is rather to identify the ways belief and behavior are connected, to explore the dynamic relationship between them, and to account for the distinctive ethical concerns in each writing.
