Overview

Discover the importance of theological interpretation. Though there is a large body of material on the theological interpretation of Scripture, most of it is highly specific and extremely technical. J. Todd Billings provides a straightforward entryway for students and pastors to understand why theological interpretation matters and how it can be done. A solid, constructive theological work, The Word of God for the People of God presents a distinctive Trinitarian, participatory approach toward reading Scripture. Billings’ accessible yet substantial argument for a theological hermeneutic is rooted in a historic vision of the practice of scriptural interpretation. It engages a wide range of contemporary issues and includes several exegetical examples that apply to concrete Christian ministry situations.
