9780898274127: Treasure the Word: A Laypersons Guide to Interpreting Scripture (Wesleyan Theological Perspectives)

The fourth volume in the Wesleyan Theological Perspectives series offers practical help for those seeking to interpret Scripture and apply it to their lives. This helpful book outlines a uniquely Wesleyan approach to Scripture interpretation, which emphasizes the importance of reason, tradition, and experience while maintaining awareness of the Holy Spirit's role in guiding the interpreter. Practical chapters examine John Wesley's approach to interpreting Scripture, as well as important factors for interpretation such as genre, culture, language, theology, and story. The final section of the book demonstrates how to apply solid principles for Bible interpretation through a variety of examples that show both correct and incorrect uses of Scripture. Pastors and teachers will gain a fresh appreciation for the treasure available to us in Scripture and will be equipped to employ a distinctively Wesleyan approach to understanding Scripture.
