The Bible in the Churches: How Various Christians Interpret the Scriptures

Synopsis

How is the Bible read in the churches today? Was the Bible always studied as it is now? Is modern biblical scholarship a source of unity or division among the churches? This collaborative venture explores such questions in the hope of clarifying the ecumenical potential of biblical study today and in history. The Bible in The Churches explains how the Bible is interpreted in the Catholic, Orthodox, Lutheran, Evangelical, and Reformed churches, respectively. As a way of focusing the similarities and differences, each exegete presents an exposition of Ephesians 2:1-10. In a conclusion, George H. Tavard, A. A., gives a masterful overview of scriptural study in the history of the church and describes the ecumenical task that lies ahead
