“This volume does what its title promises: it gives an introduction to Christian theologies of scripture, and it does so very well.”
-Religious Studies Review
“[I]t represents more than a collection of essays. It is a helpful, at times profound, mapping of Christians’ reflections on their Scriptures.”
“What does it mean to call biblical writings the ‘word of God’? This fine collection of readable essays based on current research gives an excellent overview of Christians' answers to that question from the third century to the present and undermines widespread caricatures and over-simplifications.”
-David H. Kelsey,Yale Divinity School
“Provides a state-of-the-art introduction to how Christian theories of scriptural interpretation have been intimately bound up with beliefs about life with God, examining both the outlooks of movements and periods, and the contributions of great theologians. No one with an interest in theological exegesis of biblical hermeneutics can afford to miss this book.”
-David S. Yeago,Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary
