In a compact and carefully argued presentation, a prominent New Testament scholar shares his convictions about proper apprehension of the New Testament's word of address. This serves as an introduction to many of the key points of critical evaluation in what is now called theological interpretation. He helpfully locates the theoretical discussion of narrative, the 'model reader,' history, and the Rule of Faith in relationship to the reading of New Testament texts. Informed, engaged, accessible.
research professor of biblical interpretation, Wycliffe College, University of Toronto
I warmly welcome Joel Green's book on the theological interpretation of Scripture. Contributions have already been made to this area, but this is the most mature, careful, and well read to date. Biblical studies is in the process of exploring paradigms beyond historical-critical methods (plural). The most recent are reception history and theological interpretation. Green seeks to hear the voice of God through Scripture, which, after all, is the main task of exegesis. This book will also help to span the gulf between theologians and exegetes.
-Anthony C. Thiselton,
professor of Christian theology, University of Nottingham
Joel Green's Practicing Theological Interpretation charts a way through the thickets of interpretive theory and practice for those who are committed to the role of Scripture in the faith and formation of persons and ecclesial communities. Chapters devoted to the role of the reader, the Rule of Faith, and historical study model both critical theoretical reflection and practical implementation, offering concrete interpretations of various biblical texts. Stimulating, learned, and timely, Green's essays provide guidance for those who desire to harvest the fruit of biblical scholarship for nourishing the formation of Christian faith and practice.
-Marianne Meye Thompson,
George Eldon Ladd Professor of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary
Joel Green's Practicing Theological Interpretation testifies to his deep engagement with the past twenty years of this important movement in contemporary biblical interpretation. He gently introduces the topic to beginning readers, reminds intermediate readers of nuances they may have missed (and rewards them with instructive readings of exemplary biblical texts), and for advanced audiences he marks out a clear summary of his approach as a landmark for further exploration. Green's valuable contribution to the discussions of biblical theology and theological interpretation should draw in a new generation of practitioners for his approach to attaining vibrant, convincing, compelling readings of the Bible.
