Product Description

In Captive to the Word of God eminent theologian Miroslav Volf invites readers to dip with him into the deep well of Scripture - to look over his shoulder as he engages actively with the Bible, which, as he notes, is at once a sacred text, a witness to Jesus Christ, and the site of God's self-revelation for the sake of humanity's salvation.

After a probing explanation of how and why he uses Scripture to shape theological thought, Volf applies his interpretive principles to 1 Peter, the Gospel of John, 1 John, and Ecclesiastes.

Volf's explorations - far from esoteric reflections emanating out of a theological bubble - get at the heart of some of the most real and perplexing religious quandaries of our time: pluralism, materialism, Muslim-Christian relations, how Christians ought to relate to their surrounding culture, and what it really means to say that "God is love." Together, these chapters inspire a vision of life that is informed by Scripture and lived lovingly and joyfully before God and with others.
