Overview

The Bible is meant to be read in the church, by the church, as the church.

Although the practice of reading Scripture has often become separated from its ecclesial context, theologian Derek Taylor argues that it rightly belongs to the disciplines of the community of faith. He finds a leading example of this approach in the theology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who regarded the reading of Scripture as an inherently communal exercise of discipleship.

In conversation with other theologians, including John Webster, Robert Jenson, and Stanley Hauerwas, Taylor contends that Bonhoeffer’s approach to Scripture can engender the practices and habits of a faithful hermeneutical community. Today, as in Bonhoeffer’s time, the church is called to take up and read.

  • Focuses on Bonhoeffer’s approach to Scripture
  • Explores Scripture as an inherently communal exercise of discipleship
  • Examines the writings of John Webster, Robert Jenson, and Stanley Hauerwas
  • Part One: The Church as Creature of the World: Hermeneutics and the Risen Christ
  • Part Two: The Church as Institution: Hermeneutics and the Ecclesial Past
  • Part Three: The Church as Congregation: Hermeneutics and Togetherness
  • Part Four: The Church as Missional Community: Hermeneutics and the World
Derek Taylor brings his considerable analytical ability to the important topic of biblical interpretation, offering us a deeply considered proposal building on the work of Bonhoeffer and others, on the sense in which the church is the context for reading the Bible. This book is not to be missed.
