Today, as a result of renewed interest in early Christian biblical interpretation, and of the widely shared sense that the historical-critical study of the Scriptures cannot, by itself, nourish the spiritual hunger of Christian disciples, many people who read the Bible as the norm of their faith and life are convinced that the only kind of interpretation that can do justice to the biblical text must be theological: a style of interpretation that takes God and God's work in the world seriously, as the true shaper of the text and as its final meaning. Here, with the help of some of the Church Fathers, Brian Daley sets out to ask what "theological interpretation of Scripture" might mean.

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, and includes a devotional by Bruce Hindmarsh, an introductory message by James Houston, and a response by Dr. Peter Leithart.
This address is also available as part of the complete set of presentations from the conference.
