This is Eichrodt's attempt to preserve 'Gabler's legacy', freeing the Bible from dogmatic control (1992: 32). An important part of Eichrodt's recasting of Old Testament Theology was his recognition of the problem of the selection of 'material' in historical study. ' He continues, 'work in logic and methodology, in any event, has been unable to establish one' (1992: 34). He also notes the related question of how the historian's perception of the purpose of the material affects its construal, and argues that this is principally defined by the historian's own presuppositions.

But one comment that was consistently made was that the approach was incomplete as it stood; to be complete it must include the New Testament as well as the Old, a point which Childs had already realized (1984: xvi).
