Description

Recent decades have witnessed a renaissance of theological interpretation. This volume brings clarity and unity to the enterprise and articulates a multifaceted vision for returning rigorous biblical interpretation to the context of the church. Developed by the internationally recognized Scripture and Hermeneutics Seminar, A Manifesto for Theological Interpretation combines academic rigor with pastoral sensitivity as it positively integrates multiple approaches to interpreting the Bible.

"Interest in theological interpretation of Scripture has occasioned several explanatory introductions, commentaries on both Testaments, a dictionary, a journal, and now a manifesto. Accompanying the twelve-point manifesto are an equal number of essays that exposit and further explore each article. This multiauthor work may now be the best starting place from which to understand the rise, nature, methods, and aims of this ancient-future proposal for reading the Bible in and for the church in order to hear God's address to his people."
--Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"This book marks an unexpected development--a significant advance--in the theological interpretation of Scripture. Here we find a wide range of scholars, from across the ecumenical spectrum, each demonstrating how Scripture can and should be read and understood in the context of the church, the canon, and the great tradition. Such a canonical and ecclesial approach exhibits considerable explanatory power. The authors present the book as a manifesto. May it soon become a movement."
--Scott Hahn, Mundelein Seminary; founder and president, St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology
