Introducing Theological Interpretation of Scripture

Full Product Description

In the wake of the schism during the past two centuries between biblical studies and theology, a new movement has developed, seeking to bridge this modern gap. This hermeneutical movement, which hearkens back to aspects of pre-critical interpretation, has been labelled the 'theological interpretation of Scripture' (TIS) and focuses on the contexts of canon, creed, and church. While the trend is in its infancy, it is rapidly gaining momentum.

Introducing Theological Interpretation of Scripture is the first clear, systematic introduction to this movement for students and non-specialist scholars. Daniel Treier surveys the history, themes, advocates, and positions of TIS and seeks to bring coherence to its various elements. He also explores what he sees as the greatest challenges the movement will have to address in the future, including the interface between TIS and biblical theology, general hermeneutics, and the concept of social location in reading scriptural texts. Woven throughout is a case study on the imago Dei, demonstrating how TIS plays out in theological exegesis. This case study adds to the book's usefulness as a secondary text in hermeneutics courses.

Introducing Theological Interpretation of Scripture by Daniel J. Treier was published by Apollos in July 2008 and is our 26192nd best seller. The ISBN for Introducing Theological Interpretation of Scripture is 9781844743117.

"Many voices today clamor for the recovery of theological interpretation, from many corners and for diverse reasons. For those concerned with the significance of the church for reading Scripture, and the significance of Scripture for the church, this is a renaissance most welcome. So many different voices, though, can leave us confused - not only on the finer points of the discussion, but even about its most basic question, What is theological interpretation? We need a map, and this is precisely what 'Daniel Treier has provided: a map that will be as useful to those already engaged in the conversation as it is crucial for those trying to gain their first bearings." Joel B. Green, professor of New Testament interpretation, Fuller Theological Seminary

"Dan Treier is one of the brightest scholars working at the intersection of Scripture, hermeneutics, and theology in the evangelical academy today. Here he offers a masterful survey of the landscape and shows how evangelicals can join with Catholic scholars and others in moving the discussion forward." Timothy George, Dean, Beeson Divinity School; Senior editor, Christianity Today
