Those responsible for developing Kerygma study resources have worked to avoid unwarranted theological presuppositions in the writing and editing. Thus churches from many denominations have found the study materials consistent with their traditions. The theological guidelines for publishing resources include the following:
- The best resource for Bible study is the Bible, or better, the Bible whole.
- An awareness of the full scope of the Biblical story provides needed balance for the building of faith.
- Scripture should be allowed to speak for itself. If the Bible is understood on its own terms, it will convey its own truth.
- Biblical understanding should be a prelude to theological belief. The Bible should inform theology, not theology the Bible.
