Description

Any genuinely Evangelical resourcement -- any attempt to renew Evangelical theology and biblical interpretation by retrieving earlier sources -- must include the Reformers and their hermeneutical concerns. In this paper Prof. Vanhoozer examines three "earthy" biblical texts - texts that speak of rocks, mountains, and sexual intimacy -- and offer typological and transfigural readings. He then proceeds to indicate the kind of ontology that such readings, and Scripture itself, both presuppose and prescribe. A response if given by Lewis Ayers.

This lecture is the first of two keynote addresses given at the 2011 Regent College Theology Conference, Heaven on Earth: The Future of Spiritual Interpretation
This address is also available as part of the complete set of presentations from the conference.
