How can academic biblical interpretation fruitfully contribute to Christian belief and living in today's world? This 2000 book offers a synthesis of some of the best in pre-modern, modern and post-modern approaches to biblical interpretation, and locates the discipline within a self-critical Trinitarian rule of faith, where historical criticism, systematic theology, ethics, and spirituality are constructively combined. Moberly reclaims biblical and patristic principles of what is necessary for meaningful and truthful speech about God to be possible; he engages with contemporary ideological suspicions directed both to scripture and to its interpreters; and he offers an account of God and humanity in relation to both Old and New Testaments. Hermeneutical theory is given practical shape in in-depth studies of Genesis 22 ('The Akedah'), the Journey to Emmaus (Luke 24), and the Christology of Matthew's Gospel, studies which should be of interest to both Jews and Christians.

Product Description


'Dr Moberly writes with his hand in an elegant velvet glove, but it is a hand of steel. He cares about truth, and about correct interpretation, and believes these can be reached. This is a tough minded book. It tells you who is wrong and why, and what is right and why.' John Goldingay, Church Times

'Moberly has shown splendidly in this book how theology may be done with Scripture.' Walter J Houston, Theology

Book Description

This 2000 book offers an account of God and humanity in relation to both Old and New Testaments. Detailed studies of Abraham's sacrifice in Genesis 22, the story of the journey to Emmaus, and the Christology of Matthew's Gospel integrate theory with practice.

This is a good book, but rather difficult to read. oNce you get past the fir st few chapters he draws a relative strong conclusion between biblical truths and self awareness.
