Resumo

LOMBAARD, Christo. Biblical Spirituality and J.H. Eaton. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2012, vol.33, n.1, pp. 1-5. ISSN 1609-9982.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ve.v33i1.685.

In this contribution, the nature of 'Biblical Spirituality' as an academic discipline is reviewed from a methodological perspective. Two core aspects are indicated: the importance of ancient expressions of faith (spiritualities) in the Bible, and the importance of modern expressions of faith (spiritualities) as they draw on the Bible. Based on this framework, as a first application of such a nature within the field of Biblical Spirituality, the relevant publications of an Old Testament scholar are evaluated; in this case, those of J.H. Eaton. Such an analysis opens an arena for discussion on whether this model of Biblical Spirituality holds promise for wider application.
