Product Description

In 2005 A.J. Jacobs attempted to spend one year following Scripture, both Old and New, as literally as possible. Predictably, some of the results turned out to be as absurd as is the attempt. Yet, Jacobs' attempt points out how difficult it can really be to translate the Bible from original intent to practical practice today. Academia, with its emphasis on the original meaning and context in many ways has not helped this process but only made it more difficult to treat the text as it is a living, powerful, and life transformative reality.

In this book Four Views On Moving Beyond the Bible to Theology major Evangelical scholars Walter Kaiser, Daniel Doriani, Kevin Vanhoozer, and William Webb, all grapple with this difficult subject in their own ways suggesting ways we can get beyond a text that simply tells us something, to making those texts become living realities. Highly recommended for Biblical Interpretation courses of all kinds, especially those wishing to encourage good interpretive principals and theological development, as well as Pastors.

Publisher's Description

The Bible has long served as the standard for Christian practice, yet believers still disagree on how biblical passages should be interpreted and applied. Only when readers fully understand the constructs that inform their process of moving from Scripture to theology—and those of others—can Christians fully evaluate teachings that claim to be “biblical.” Here, scholars who affirm an inspired Bible, relevant and authoritative for every era, present models they consider most faithful to Scripture: - Walter C. Kaiser, Jr.: A Principlizing Model - Daniel M. Doriani: A Redemptive-Historical Model - Kevin J. Vanhoozer: A Drama-of-Redemption Model - William J. Webb: A Redemptive-Movement Model Each position also receives critiques from the proponents of the other views. Moreover, due to the far-reaching implications this topic holds for biblical studies, theology, and church teaching, this book includes three additional reflections by Christopher J. H. Wright, Mark L. Strauss, and Al Wolters on the theological and practical interpretation of biblical texts. Four Views on Moving beyond the Bible to Theology empowers readers to identify, evaluate, and refine their own approach to moving from the Bible to theology.
