Item description for The Bible's Importance for the Church Today (Lutheran Voices) by Ritva H. Williams...

Overview
Biblical authority and interpretation are frequently described as polarized between the voices of the right and the left, between conservative and liberal perspectives, between traditional and contextual ways of interpretation. While laying out the contours of these positions, The Bible's Importance for the Church Today argues for an alternative: a perspective that is neither conservative nor liberal, that isn't hung up on claims about the supernatural origins of Scripture but still insists that the Bible is more than an historically and culturally conditioned human product. The Bible's Importance for the Church Today articulates a distinctive Lutheran approach to Scripture that stands in faithful and critical continuity with the nature of the Bible as the embodied memories of Jews and Christians in the formative centuries. Understanding how these texts function to shape personal and communal identity is crucial for mature faith formation and moral deliberation consistent with the Lutheran theological heritage.
