This book features essays by biblical scholars and theologians offering broad reflections on key interpretive issues, rich readings of challenging biblical texts, and interaction with the Christian exegetical tradition from Melito of Sardis to Dietrich Bonhoeffer. The contributors to this volume are leading figures in the theological interpretation of Scripture.
Mindful of the Bible's role in relation to God's purposes, people, and world, these essays together offer "acts of interpretation" that aim to advance the faithful and fruitful correlation of Scripture, theology, and culture. Contributors: Craig G. Bartholomew, Hans Boersma, S. A. Cummins, Peter Enns, Stephen E. Fowl, Joel B. Green, Edith M. Humphrey, Charles Raith II, Christopher R. Seitz, Robert W. Wall, Jens Zimmermann.
