Character and Scripture: Moral Formation, Community, and Biblical Interpretation
Edited by William P. Brown
From The Publisher:
This volume by some of today's leading Christian thinkers sets forth the theological and ethical nature of scripture and explores the way in which the Bible plays a crucial role in the moral formation of community.
Covering a wide range of issues, these chapters demonstrate the useful and challenging intersection between biblical interpretation and ethics. The contributors investigate the formative impact scripture makes on its readers and examine the community's job of not only interpreting the biblical text but also integrating its moral character into the daily life of faith. This volume not only discusses these subjects in the most comprehensive manner yet, but it also offers practical examples of moral formation in action.
