Description: 

This course examines theologies of Holy Scripture, along with differing understandings of hermeneutics and biblical interpretation. Particular attention will be given to the connection between the Bible and ecclesiology, as well as to Neo-Orthodox, Postliberal, and Feminist-Liberationist understandings of Scripture. The biblical text?s relationship to both personal and communal identity will be one of the courses principal themes. Students will engage with different models for understanding Holy Scripture, and explore the practical implications of such models for the use of the Bible in pastoral ministry.
