The Future of Biblical Interpretation: Responsible Plurality in Biblical Hermeneutics PBBy: Matthew R Malcolm, Stanley E Porter
How should we expect multiple interpretations of the Bible to be kept in check? Each of the contributors, experts in the field, considers one parameter of responsibility, which may act as a constraint on the validity of competing biblical interpretations. Stanley E. Porter considers theological resposibility; Walter Moberly on ecclesial reponsibility; Richard S. Briggs on scriptural responsibility; Matthew R Malcolm on kerygmatic responsibility; James D.G. Dunn on historical reponsibility; Robert C. Morgan on critical; Tom Greggs on relational responsibility and Anthony C Thiselton considers the topic as a whole. What emereges is a plurivocal but concordant projection of fruitful ways forward for biblical interpretation.
