Description: Don Thorsen and Keith Reeves combine their biblical and theological knowledge to provide students with an informed and wide-ranging understanding of varied Christian views about the Bible's nature. This concise introduction not only explores the interpretation of the Bible but also examines the history and theological understanding behind biblical interpretation, equipping students to think critically about their own tradition's approach to Scripture. It will serve as a useful supplemental text in both introductory biblical studies and theology courses, helping to "fill in the blanks" regarding questions that arise but are not always treated in a particular discipline.
Subjects: Bible, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Theological Approaches, History of Interpretation
