Upcoming Conference at Calvin Seminary on ” A Missional Reading of Scripture”

Next week I’ll be hosting a book table at a conference on “A Missional Reading of Scripture” at Calvin Theological Seminary. I’m very excited about the key note speakers and their topics which are N.T. Wright (A Missional Reading of the New Testament), Christopher J.H. Wright (A Missional Reading of the Old Testament), Michael Goheen (A Missional Reading of Scripture and Preaching), and Darrell L. Guder (A Missional Reading of Scripture and Theological Education).

“Over the past century a number of scholars have recognized that mission is not simply a peripheral theme in the biblical story. Rather, it is a central thread in the biblical writings and central to the identity of the church. Thus, a missional hermeneutic is a way of reading Scripture in which mission is a central interpretive key that unlocks the whole narrative of Scripture. It does not simply study the theme of mission but reads the whole of the biblical canon with mission as one of its central themes. This conference will explore what it might mean to read both the Old Testament and the New Testament with a missional hermeneutic, and what that might mean for missional praxis of the church, specifically preaching, theological education, and the life of the local congregation.”
