Title: The Theological Interpretation of Scripture
About the ATR
The Anglican Theological Review is a quarterly journal of theological reflection within the Episcopal Church USA and the Anglican Church of Canada. In the spirit of sound learning that has been a hallmark of Anglicanism worldwide, its aim is to foster scholarly excellence and thoughtful conversation in and for the church. The journal is committed to creative intellectual engagement with Christian tradition and interdisciplinary inquiry that includes literature and the arts, philosophy, and science.

Description of the Fall 2017 Issue--Title: The Theological Interpretation of Scripture
This thematic issue of the Anglican Theological Review is devoted to the theological interpretation of scripture. In his opening essay, R. W. L. Moberly covers a number of changes in the scholarly landscape that have opened the door to a reinvigorated theological approach to the Old Testament. Stephen E. Fowl develops these points while further examining the institutional academic structures within which theological interpretation emerged. In her article on Genesis 1, Susannah Ticciati discusses the challenges the textual ambiguities in Genesis 1 pose to Christian theological approaches to the doctrine of creation ex nihilo. Turning to Jeremiah, Bungishabaku Katho seeks to understand how Jeremiah's diagnosis of what went wrong with the nation of Israel might be a guide in our own national contexts.

Rebekah Eklund opens the Practicing Theology section with a consideration of Gregory of Nyssa's account of the beatitudes, suggesting that we should see faithful interpreters of the past as valuable conversation partners, rather than blunderers who failed to uncover the historical meaning of the text. Jennie Grillo then offers a subtle and detailed analysis of the Greek additions to the book of Daniel, focusing on the story of Susanna and arguing that Susanna's silence becomes transformed from the silence imposed on a victim into a tool of the innocent one, turning the tables on her oppressors. Nate Dawson's contribution to this section is an intellectual memoir of how he was drawn into theological interpretation while discerning a call to ministry.

Two review articles then follow, the first by D. Christopher Spinks on current writings within the practice of theological interpretation of scripture and the second by Joshua Davis on the work of Ephraim Radner. William J. Danaher, Jr., concludes with a Review In Depth on Kevin J. Vanhoozer's Faith Speaking Understanding, exploring the idea of theology as a performance of the drama of doctrine.

As always, the ATR includes poetry and book reviews of the latest noteworthy books in the fields of theology and ethics, pastoral theology, historical theology, biblical studies, religion and culture, interreligious studies, poetry, and liturgics.
