Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Theologys longest tradition is as a course of study that leads to wisdom. With the growth of the academy, however, theology fell into a fixation with the objective results of science. In this illuminating study Daniel Treier retrieves the older, deeper understanding of theology and connects wisdom in theological education to the theological interpretation of scripture, giving rise to a renewed understanding of the role of virtue in each.

Dialoguing with a number of prominent proponents of theological interpretation of scripture, Treier builds on a biblical theology of wisdom that involves the daily lives of all Gods people. Ultimately, Treier connects educational discussions of theology and hermeneutical discussions through a trinitarian understanding of wisdom. As a result, the increasingly diverse forms and social locations of theology can be integrated into the mainstream of theological reflection. Filled with interdisciplinary wisdom, "Virtue and the Voice of God" is a timely recovery of the essential conversation between theological education, virtue, and scriptural interpretation.

By J. Barrett on April 8, 2010
Format: Paperback
B. Birk's review is not only too short but it is misleading. Treier's volume is an excellent resource for those interested in the discussion of theology as wisdom, theological education, and what has become known as theological exegesis. As summarized elsewhere, Treier "connects wisdom in theological education to the theological interpretation of scripture, giving rise to a renewed understanding of the role of virtue in each." However, the book is not limited to these topics. Overall, it is clear, engaging, and well reasoned (these qualities can also be found in his Introducing Theological Interpretation of Scripture [Baker Academic, 2008]). Please don't let Birk's review lead you astray.

Format: Paperback
Had to read it for a theology seminar, and even the prof. came away disappointed with the choice. It takes six chapters of jargon for Treier to finally make a weak point.
