Scripture’s Knowing: A Companion to Biblical Epistemology
Johnson, Dru

Eugene, OR: Cascade, 2015 pp. xxii + 128. $14.40

Series Information
Cascade Companions


Description: Scripture's Knowing is a guide to the emerging field of philosophical study of Scripture, specifically about knowing. Assuming that the Scriptures speak verbosely and persistently about knowing, what do the biblical authors have to say? How do they conceptualize ideas like truth and knowledge? Most importantly, how do we come to confidently know anything at all? Scripture's Knowing follows the discourse on knowledge through key biblical texts and shows the similarity of biblical knowing with the scientific enterprise. The findings are linked to the role of ritual in knowing and implications for theologians and churches today.

Subjects: Bible, Literature, Methods, Literary Approaches, Hermeneutics, Theological Approaches
