Word without Endadvocates a canonical approach to biblical interpretation, one that does not allow the New Testament to eclipse the interpretation of the Old Testament. In so doing, Seitz directly challenges the way in which the Old Testament is currently being read and taught in theological seminaries. By attending to "theology," "exegesis," and "practice" - the three divisions of the book - Seitz models a reading of the Old Testament as Scripture that lays out a theological foundation for the life of the church.
Christopher R. Seitz (Ph.D., Yale University) is professor of biblical interpretation at Wycliffe College, University of Toronto, in Toronto, Ontario. He previously taught at the University of St. Andrews and Yale University. He is the author or editor of twelve books including Figured Out: Typology, Providence and Christian Scripture; Nicene Christianity The Future for a New Ecumenism; Goodly Fellowship of the Prophets, The: The Achievement of Association in Canon Formation; Isaiah 1-39 (Interpretation Bible Commentaries) and most recently Colossians (Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible).
