COLETTO, R.. Strategies towards a reformation of the theology-based approach to Christian scholarship. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2009, vol.43, n.2, pp.291-314. ISSN 2305-0853.
This article tries to offer an alternative to the theology-based approach to Christian scholarship, which I have critically presented in a previous contribution. A demarcation criterion between science and non-science is provided, then attention is drawn to a few other distinctions which are often missing or neglected in the theology-based approach. Furthermore, an alternative view of theology is sketched, and the role of the Bible in Christian scholarship is discussed. Finally, a few characteristics of the proposed approach to Christian scholarship are clarified and a few advantages of this model are highlighted.
