Cover for Reading Joshua as Christian Scripture

Reading Joshua as Christian Scripture

Douglas S. Earl

$37.95 $26.57 (30% off!)

he book of Joshua has been received and used as Christian Scripture throughout Christian history. The challenge today, however, is how Christians should appropriately continue to read Joshua as Scripture, not least in the light of well-known historical and ethical difficulties with the narrative. In Reading Joshua as Christian Scripture, Douglas Earl draws on conceptual resources offered by recent anthropological approaches to myth and combines this with a close literary reading of the text, in order to argue that Joshua is misconstrued when it is. . .

According to the Law

Reading Ezra 9–10 as Christian Scripture

Csilla Saysell

$39.95 $27.97 (30% off!)

Christian interpreters have struggled with the story of Ezra 9–10 for many reasons. Its apparent legalism and racism, as well as its advocacy of divorce as a solution for intermarriage, is unacceptable for many Christians, yet this incident is presented in implicitly positive terms, and the narrative forms a part of Scripture. What then should a Christian reader make of such a story, not least from the vantage point of. . . (more)

Cover for Limits of a Text

The Limits of a Text

Luke 23:34a as a Case Study in Theological Interpretation

Joshua Marshall Strahan

$29.95 $20.97 (30% off!)

How does one limit a biblical text? Can one limit it? Should one? These questions drive one to examine core assumptions of biblical interpretation, assumptions about the aims and attitudes one brings to the task of reading the Bible. Is the aim of biblical exegesis to uncover what really happened, to discover the author’s intentions, to attend to the interpretations of readers—ancient and/or contemporary? Furthermore. . . (more)

Cover for Reading the Way to Heaven

Reading the Way to Heaven

A Wesleyan Theological Hermeneutic of Scripture

Steven Joe Koskie Jr.

$34.95 $25.17 (30% off!)

The proliferation of work on the theological hermeneutics of Scripture in recent years has challenged and reimagined the divisions between systematic theology and biblical studies on the one hand and academy and church on the other. Also notable, however, has been the absence of a full-length treatment of theological interpretation from a Wesleyan perspective. This monograph develops a Wesleyan. . . (more)

Cover for Knowledge by Ritual

Knowledge by Ritual

A Biblical Prolegomenon to Sacramental Theology

Dru Johnson

$39.95 $27.97 (30% off!)

What do rituals have to do with knowledge? Knowledge by Ritual examines the epistemological role of rites in Christian Scripture. By putting biblical rituals in conversation with philosophical and scientific views of knowledge, Johnson argues that knowing is a skilled adeptness in both the biblical literature and scientific enterprise. If rituals are a way of thinking in community akin to scientific communities, then the biblical emphasis on rites that lead to knowledge cannot be ignored. Practicing a. . . (more)

Cover for Imago Dei as Human Identity

The Imago Dei as Human Identity

A Theological Interpretation

Ryan Peterson

$33.95 $23.77 (30% off!)

Theologians and Old Testament scholars have been at odds with respect to the best interpretation of the imago Dei. Theologians have preferred substantialistic (e.g., image as soul or mind) or relational interpretations (e.g., image as relational personhood) and Old Testament scholars have preferred functional interpretations (e.g., image as kingly dominion). The disagreements revolve around a number of exegetical questions. How do we best read Genesis 1 in its literary, historical, and cultural. . . (more)

Cover for Seventy-Sevens Are Decreed

“Seventy-Sevens Are Decreed”

A Canonical Approach to Daniel 9:24–27

Ron Haydon

$34.95 $24.47 (30% off!)

Few passages in the Old Testament are as enigmatic as Daniel 9:24–27. It makes sense, therefore, that a myriad of interpretations surround these four verses. Expanding on Brevard Childs’s brief work on Daniel, Haydon responds to this question with a canonical approach to Dan 9:24-27: reading a text that is shaped to include future generations of faithful interpreters. The first part lays the groundwork for a canonical approach. Whereas most biblical scholars read Daniel 9 through the lens of. . . (more)

Cover for Reading Old Testament Narrative as Christian Scripture

Reading Old Testament Narrative as Christian Scripture

Douglas S. Earl

$39.95 $27.97 (30% off!)

Douglas Earl sets out a fresh perspective on understanding what is involved in reading Old Testament narrative as Christian Scripture. Earl considers various narratives as examples that model different interpretive challenges in the form of exegetical, ethical, historical, metaphysical, and theological difficulties. Using these examples, the significance of interpretive approaches focused on authorial intention, history of composition, canonical context, reception history, and. . . (more)
