THE REFORMATION AND THE RIGHT READING OF SCRIPTURE
SPEAKER : Dr. Iain Provan, Professor of Biblical Studies, Regent College
The sessions will cover three topics:
- Why the Bible can be trusted.
- How God speaks to us through His word.
- Reading rightly in the world today.
“I’ve been waiting years for a book such as this: a comprehensive treatment of the nature, history, and significance of the Bible’s literal interpretation. Here is a sustained argument for the importance of reading with the Reformers, which in Provan’s account means doing as they say, not exactly as they do. This is a brave book that sails against the prevailing winds of hermeneutical fashion, charting a ‘fifth way’ that avoids reductive historical, expansive postmodern, narrow literalistic, and unregulated spiritual ways of reading the Bible. Read literally, Scripture is not a wax nose that can be turned this way or that, but a divinely inspired, authoritative text with real bite.” ― Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Research Professor of Systematic Theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
