Dr. Michael Williams, professor of systematic theology at Covenant Seminary, has co-authored a chapter in a new book on theological interpretation, to be published by Baker Academic in May 2016. Williams’s chapter, written with Dr. Michael Goheen, director of theological education and scholar-in-residence at Missional Training Center—Phoenix, is titled “The Doctrine of Scripture and Theological Interpretation.” It is chapter two of the book A Manifesto for Theological Interpretation, edited by Craig G. Bartholomew and Heath A. Thomas.
The publisher’s website describes the book in this way: “Recent decades have witnessed a renaissance of theological interpretation. Craig Bartholomew and Heath Thomas bring together a team of specialists to articulate a multifaceted vision for returning rigorous biblical interpretation to the context of the church. Developed by the internationally recognized Scripture and Hermeneutics Seminar, this book is designed to bring clarity and unity to the enterprise of theological interpretation. It positively integrates multiple approaches to interpreting the Bible, combining academic rigor with pastoral sensitivity for professors, students, and church leaders.”
In addition to Drs. Williams and Goheen, the volume includes contributions by several well-known scholars, such as Christopher J. H. Wright, Aubrey Spears, Matthew Y. Emerson, Stephen G. Dempster, and others.
