:The rise of modernity, especially the European Enlightenment and its aftermath, has negatively impacted the way we understand the nature and interpretation of Christian Scripture. In this introduction to biblical interpretation, Craig Carter evaluates the problems of post-Enlightenment hermeneutics and offers an alternative approach: exegesis in harmony with the Great Tradition. Carter argues for the validity of patristic christological exegesis, showing that we must recover the Nicene theological tradition as the context for contemporary exegesis, and seeks to root both the nature and interpretation of Scripture firmly in trinitarian orthodoxy.
Dr. Craig A. Carter (PhD, University of St. Michael's College, Toronto) is Professor of Religious Studies at Tyndale University and Seminary, Toronto. Dr Carter has two main interests reflected in his writing: Systematic theology and Christianity and culture. His thesis on John Howard Yoder was published as The Politics of the Cross: The Theology and Social Ethics of John Howard Yoder (Brazos Press) and Rethinking Christ and Culture: A Post-Christendom Perspective (Brazos Press). After serving for eight years as an administrator and faculty member at Atlantic Baptist University, He came to Tyndale in 2000 as Vice President and Academic Dean. Dr Carter is now at work on several writing projects including a popular book for lay people on the Nicene Faith as the central, consensual basis of Christian doctrine, and Theism or Trinitarianism? The Evangelical Doctrine of God and Ancient Christian Orthodoxy contracted with InterVarsity Press for 2010.
