Overview

This book proposes that the Bible's central claim to answer our ultimate life and death questions is the clue for a method of interpretation which fits with the nature of the text as a canonic whole. A faithful hermeneutic of Scripture will be pastoral in intention, approaching Scripture on the level of certitude.

Co-published with the Institute for Christian Studies in Toronto.
