Description

Theological interpretation of Scripture is becoming a common practice, both among Catholics and evangelicals. For some, this may seem like the arrival of heaven on earth. Others, however, have critiqued the recent trend toward theological interpretation for being too theologically or heavenly minded and for not doing justice to the historical, earthly realities of which the text speaks.

This conference, hosted by Regent College in cooperation with the Center for Catholic-Evangelical Dialogue (CCED), brings together numerous renowned Catholic and evangelical scholars to ask the question: what are the implications if we read the historical, earthly text in the light of spiritual or heavenly realities? Answering this question raises a multitude of sub-questions for the laity, pastors, and scholars in the Church. Is Scripture primarily a historical, earthy text, or is it a sacramental vessel for spiritual truths, or both perhaps? Is there an exegetical posture that Catholics and evangelicals can share? How are we to read both critically and devotionally?

  • God Speaks "In Many and Various Ways" Towards a Theology of Theological Exegesis - Dr. Brian Daley (Keynote Address)
