Figured Out

Christopher R Seitz

$55.00

Paperback
256 Pages

- Publisher The way we read Scripture and what in turn we discover are connected. All of our attempts to find the historical backgrounds to texts have led us to believe that we have figured out the Bible. Steering a course between modernity's obsession with historical readings and fundamentalism's compulsion for a-historical readings, this text recovers a figural/typological approach to both Testaments that shapes a theological understanding of Scripture. Individual chapters cover various aspects of the Trinity (Father, Son and Spirit), the nature and practices of the Church, and facets of the spiritual life.

- Publisher How we read the Bible and what we "discover" there are inseparably linked. Scholarship's focus on the historical setting has left the Bible "figured out." By moving beyond modernity's obsession with historical readings, Seitz seeks to recover a figural/typological approach to both Testaments-one that shapes a truly theological understanding of Scripture.
