Product Description

In Reading Scripture with the Reformers, Timothy George takes readers through the exciting events of the sixteenth century, showing how this dynamic, complex, and axious period was instigated by a direct return to the Scriptures and their ancient languages. George immerses us in the world of the Reformation, its continuities with the ancient and medieval church, and its dramatic upheavals and departs from its reigning cultural and religious paradigms.

But most poignantly of all, Reading Scripture with the Reformers uncovers the significant and determinative way that the Bible shaped the minds and hearts of the reformers. This book shows how the key figures of the Reformation--Luther, Calvin, Zwingli, etc.--read and interpreted Scripture, and how their thought was groomed and subsumed to what they read. Finally, George also invites us to see what the church today can learn from the fathers of the Reformation, and how these figures offer a model of reading, praying and living out the Scriptures.

Features
  • A fresh, engaging introduction to the world of the Reformation
  • Examines the crucial role of the Bible in forming the thought and practices of the Reformers
  • Surveys the key figures and events that brought about the Reformation
  • Uses developments in hermeneutics and exegesis as a lens for viewing the Reformation era

Editorial Reviews

"Author, professor, and well-known Reformation church historian, Timothy George, has provided the church with an excellent introduction to Reformation-era principles of biblical interpretation, preaching, and commentary writing. . . . George's volume is especially helpful in analyzing the way in which the Reformers read and interpreted Scripture and why their approach is of continuing benefit to the spiritual life of the contemporary church."
