The Word of God for the People of God

In this constructive and pastoral work, J. Todd Billings gifts the church with a wise articulation of a constructive ‘theological interpretation of Scripture.’ Not only does this work cover some of the most important scholars working in the field today, but TO DATE, this is the most pastoral work on the theological interpretation of Scripture I’m aware of. That is not to say that others haven’t done fine work in this particular area. In this book – Billings does a huge favor to those just entering the burgeoning field of theological interpretation. This is a must read for ALL students and ALL pastors interested in reading Scripture theologically in and for the church. When the back of your book is comprised of such scholars as Kevin Vanhoozer, Michael Pasquarelo, Matthew Levering and John Webster – you know that you’re reading some good work.
