Biblical scholarship in Churches of Christ (a cappella) has developed from an earlier stage of intramural scholasticism to a new maturity in which scholars publish actively for the larger academy as well as for the church. Ironically, however, this new maturity faces challenges in a rapidly changing fellowship. Biblical scholarship can lead the way toward a more healthy future for Churches of Christ as they enter into the Christian mainstream.
