Shs #07: Canon And Biblical Interpretation

Drawing on a broad array of contributors, volume seven of the Scripture and Hermeneutics Series assesses the current state of canonical interpretation and uses that as a starting point for exploring ingredients in theological interpretation of the Bible today. Canon and Biblical Interpretation begins with a masterful examination of the canonical approach and the various criticisms that have been levelled against it.

Canon has to do with the authoritative shape in which Scripture has been received by the Church, and which must be taken seriously if it is to be read aright by people of faith. This book focuses on the central notion of canon in contemporary biblical studies, and illumines it from a number of different perspectives: historical, theoretical, and exegetical.

A particularly valuable feature of the volume is its interaction with the work of Brevard Childs, the pioneer of the canonical approach, and its focus on the fruitfulness of a canonical reading for a broad range of biblical material.

Additional chapters look at canonical interpretation in relation to different parts of the Bible, such as the Pentateuch, the Wisdom books, the Psalms, and the Gospels. Articles address such issues as canonical authority and the controversial relationship between canonical interpretation and general hermeneutics. A unique chapter explores the relationship between academic exegesis and lectio divina
