Paperback
How 2000 Years of Biblical Interpretation Can Shed New Light on Old Texts^Many readers of the Bible think that interpreting Scripture well simply requires a two way^dialogue between themselves and the text. However, if we believe that God has been^speaking through the Bible to devout Christians for the past 2000 years it would seem that^we should find a way to identify the insights they perceived in the text so that we could^learn to read the text with them.

^^Using reception theory, the goal of Reading the Bible with^Giants is to engage the contemporary reader, the Bible and the history of its interpretation ^in a three-way dialogue.
