Product Description

How we read the Bible and what we "discover" there are inseparably linked. Scholarship's focus on the historical setting has left the Bible "figured out." By moving beyond modernity's obsession with historical readings, Seitz seeks to recover a figural/typological approach to both Testaments-one that shapes a truly theological understanding of Scripture.

Publisher's Description

All of our attempts to find the historical backgrounds to texts have led us to believe that we have "figured out" the Bible. Steering a course between modernity's obsession with historical readings and fundamentalism's compulsion for ahistorical readings, Christopher Seitz recovers a figural/typological approach to both the Old and New Testament that shapes a theological understanding of Scripture. Figured Out examines the loss of figural assumptions and models another way forward.

Author Bio

Christopher R. Seitz is Professor of Old Testament and Theological Studies at the University of Saint Andrews in Scotland. He is the author or editor of eight books including Figured Out: Typology, Providence and Christian Scripture and Nicene Christianity: The Future for a New Ecumenism.
