I am half way through a short course based on the theological interpretation of Scripture. The textbooks are The word of God for the people of God by J. Todd Billings and Interpreting Scripture with the great tradition by Craig A. Carter. I have found somethings we have covered helpful. There are other points which seem to me to be an over reaction to the historical-Critical method. It seems to be going to the other extreme and risks losing what was gained by the reformation in terms of literal interpretation of scripture. I was wondering if many others have studied this topic and what their thoughts were?
