MoreInsights from a noteworthy convergence of top scholars in biblical studies and missiologyOver the past half century, it has become clear that mission is a central theme in the Bibles narrative and, moreover, is central to the very identity of the church. This book significantly widens and deepens the emerging conversation on missional hermeneutics.Essays from top biblical and missiological scholars discuss reading the Scriptures missionally, using mission as a key interpretive lens. Five introductory chapters probe various elements of a missional hermeneutic, followed by sections on the Old and New Testaments that include chapters on two books from each to illustrate what a missional reading of them looks like. Essays in two concluding sections draw out the implications of a missional reading of Scripture for preaching and for theological education.CONTRIBUTORSCraig G. BartholomewRichard BauckhamCarl J.
