$46.99

Paperback
This volume brings biblical exegetes, historians of the interpretation of Scripture, and contemporary philosophers and theologians who provide the scriptural imagination it will take to celebrate the Word in season and out.^Modern theologians are familiar with the challenges to scriptural imagination presented by traditional or contemporary, abuses of scripture. We see the use of scripture to legitimate racism and sexism and other offenses; the haughty claims of some historical criticism and philosophical hermeneutics to understand scripture better than it understands itself; and theological conspiracy with these imaginative powers of this world. Students of scripture must be servants of the Word in their theology if scriptural imagination is to thrive.^The essays in this volume articulate overlapping as well as competing directions in modern theology. They enable readers to seek out the common ground as well as the conflicts, to learn to taste the Word when it is bitter as well as sweet.

- Publisher Theology and Scriptural Imagination brings together biblical exegetes, historians of the interpretation of Scripture, as well as contemporary philosophers and theologians who practice the kind of theological reflection it will take to celebrate the Word in season and out in a world that challenges the Scriptural imagination. As in previous volumes in this series, the essays here articulate overlapping as well as competing directions in modern theology. The editors hope that readers will seek out the common ground as well as the conflicts, to learn to taste the Word when it is bitter as well as sweet.
