Draws together the most important articles on Scripture and hermeneutics by distinguished scholar and author N. T. Wright.
Interpreting Scripture brings together into one volume Wright's self-selected, key lectures, papers, and reflections on topics of scriptural interpretation, including:
- The Lord's Prayer as a Paradigm of Christian Prayer
- Christian Origins and the Question of God
- Faith, Virtue, Justification, and the Journey to Freedom
- Revelation and Christian Hope: Political Implications of the Revelation to John
- Apocalyptic and the Sudden Fulfilment of Divine Promise
- …and many more.
Interpreting Scripture displays Wright's engaging prose, his courage to go where few have gone, and his joy to bridge the work of the academy and the church.
Here is a rich feast for any serious student of the Bible, especially of the New Testament. Detailed, incisive, and exquisitely nuanced exegesis, this collection will reward you with a clearer, deeper, and more informed appreciation of Scripture and its application to Christian life and thought today.
Many of the included studies have never been published or were made available only in hard-to-find larger volumes and journals.
