Description

What does it mean to be biblical in ones' theology and in one's life? This series studies the diverse ways that recent theories of meaning and truth have a bearing on biblical authority and interpretation--on exegesis, theology and ethics alike. Listeners will learn how to approach Scripture as a norm for thought and action in an age when the very possibility of meaning and truth is disputed. Listeners also will come to appreciate both how modern and post-modern theories of meaning and truth affect theology and how they may themselves be transformed as a result of their encounter with the Bible and Christian doctrine. The purpose is to help the listener to formulate a strategy for articulating the meaningfulness and truthfulness of Scripture in a post-modern, pluralistic and public context.
