For this week’s giveaway we have Joel Green’s Practicing Theological Interpretation: Engaging Biblical Texts for Faith and Formation (Baker, 2012). “Theological interpretation” has gotten a lot of attention over the last few years, but many still struggle to understand exactly what it is and how you go about doing that. If you’re interested in theological interpretation and would like to learn more about it, this would be a great place to start. So scroll down to see how to enter.
Here’s the description from the publisher.
Much is written about the theory of theological interpretation, but how does it function when it comes to actually working with biblical texts? This volume shows that theological interpretation is not so much an exegetical method as it is a practice concerned with Scripture’s role in the faith and formation of persons and ecclesial communities. Biblical scholar Joel Green demonstrates both the practice of theological interpretation and the fruitfulness of this approach to reading biblical texts, providing students with helpful ways of wrestling with knotty interpretive issues. He also explores how theological inquiry can coexist with rigorous academic study of the Bible.
