Christianity is a religion of a book. However, how does Christian faith of the 21st century connect with this book, the Bible? In the 2019-panel, our study group hopes to shed some light on the question of how different Christian denominations construct their theology from the biblical canon: Who are the participants and the pillars, and what are the patterns and processes in the development of doctrine “according to the Scriptures”? How do we transition from the canon of historical texts to the theology that guides our faith? The panel welcomes contributions from all denominations in order to investigate these particular questions from various angles.
