This is a mashup of John Frame's "triperspectivalism" and Four Views on Moving Beyond the Bible to Theology. None of the four authors convinced me completely, although Al Wolter's summative essay at near the end of the book is worth the price of admission. Regarding triperspectivalism, Frame can be verbose but he's got a clear and trustworthy grasp of the big picture, of theology and philosophy.

So I'm using the model below as part of my exegesis and preaching preparation. I've struggled in many areas of my preaching including how to reconcile the main idea of a passage with application and wider theological concerns, this diagram's been a big help with that, linking the passage with the people and the wider ideas of Scripture.
