> Description

This book features essays by biblical scholars and theologians offering broad reflections on key interpretive issues, rich readings of challenging biblical texts, and interaction with the Christian exegetical tradition from Melito of Sardis to Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

The contributors to this volume are leading figures in the theological interpretation of Scripture. Mindful of the Bible’s role in relation to God’s purposes, people, and world, these essays together offer “acts of interpretation” that aim to advance the faithful and fruitful correlation of Scripture, theology, and culture.

Review of Biblical Literature
“As noted in the opening essay, this book is aimed at a particular audience, that of those who read the Bible as Scripture. However, even those who would not subscribe to such a view will find useful exegetical discussions here.”
Modern Theology
“There is real illumination to be found within this collection, and the material is accessible to a wide audience, which will make it useful in certain teaching contexts.”
