Brevard Springs Childs is one of those biblical scholars who dismiss this -iron curtain- separating the two disciplines. Theological Exegesis in the Canonical Context: Brevard Springs Childss Methodology of Biblical Theology analyzes Childss concept of theological exegesis in the biblical canons. Childs disregards negative influences of the historical-critical method by establishing canon-based theological exegesis that leads into confessional biblical theology. He demonstrates forcefully the inadequacies of the historical-critical method in practicing biblical theology. His canonical approach establishes post-critical Christian biblical theology and works within the traditional framework of faith seeking understanding. Childss biblical theology has a double task: descriptive and constructive, the former connects biblical theology with exegesis, the latter with dogmatics. He uses a comprehensive model that combines a thematic investigation of the essential theological contents of the Bible with a systematic analysis of the contents of the Christian faith. Childss theological exegesis in the canonical context offers a new interpretation in the modern history of Christian theology.
