Populism and Elitism in New Testament Theology

Robert W. Yarbrough
  • £11.99


Each year thousands die for the Jesus they read about in the Bible. At the same time scholars worldwide reject central truths of the Book. Here is an analysis of two contrasting approaches to biblical interpretation: one which has encouraged many to abandon the Christian heritage, the other which has informed the largest numeric increase of professing Christians in world history in recent generations and which is projected to continue.

About Robert W. Yarbrough

Robert W. Yarbrough is Professor of New Testament at Covenant Theological Seminary in St Louis, Missouri.



Yarbrough here summarizes his views on the most important questions of biblical scholarship: With which methods, with which views on Scripture do we approach the Bible?Yarbrough presents many examples of two ‘clashing’ approaches, but only one of them has the fruit of leading and strengthening readers of Scripture to finding and following Christ as their Savior. There is hope for future Christendom, and also for mission, if Jesus is the center of Scripture and of the life of its readers.

This is a book that every Christian student should read before studying at a non–evangelical institution. Even those at Bible–believing institutions (including seminaries) will benefit, since they will likely be reading books by ‘elitists’ and may at some point study under them in graduate school. I found the book riveting and had a hard time putting it down. The two appendices about the life–pilgrimage of two ‘populist’ theologians are worth the price of the book.
