Scripture: A Guide for the Perplexed


Bloomsbury 2013

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Given the extraordinary richness and range of contemporary theology, questions about the authority and inspiration of the Bible tend to garner ever-increasing variety, complexity, and controversy. Among those challenges include the questions posed by biblical criticism to the enterprise of Christian theology and the place of Scripture in the life of the contemporary church.

Employing a range of conversation partners, this book will provide an up-to-date survey of the diverse ways in which contemporary theologians use the Bible “to think with.” The volume enables students to compare different approaches to the reading of Scripture. It also explores the ways in which the theological interpretation of Scripture can be both a critical and a spiritual exercise.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.
