What authority does the Bible have in a postmodern world? In this exchange from the 1995 Hein/Fry Lectures Series at Lutheran Seminary, Terence Fretheim and Karlfried Froehlich mount important, though divergent, analyses of the contemporary situation regarding Scripture and suggest varying strategies to meet it.

What does it mean to say that Scripture is authoritative for Christian faith and life in light of contemporary forms of biblical criticism? How do we understand a biblical text to be the Word of God when the meaning of the text can vary, depending on the perspective of the reader or hearer? Given the profound hermeneutical challenges of our time, how does Scripture serve as a guide in worship, doctrine, preaching, and ethical decision-making for the people of God? Fretheim and Froehlich answer these and other crucial questions with decisiveness and scholarly care.

Karlfried Froehlich is Benjamin B. Warfield Professor of Ecclesiastical History Emeritus at Princeton Theological Seminary. He is the author of Sensing the Scriptures and Biblical Interpretation from the Church Fathers to the Reformation.

Examining the theological conflict at the heart of the Book of Jonah, Terence Fretheim carefully expresses Jonah’s powerful message, providing a fresh perspective on God’s mercy and forgiveness in today’s world. Fretheim’s commentary bridges the gap between devotional and technical commentaries, paying close attention to the historical background and interpretation of the text without losing sight of the profound spiritual importance of its message for people’s lives.
