Major Summary

Our approach to becoming faithful and intelligent readers of the Bible is multidisciplinary:

  • we draw on the insights of other academic fields to assist in opening the Biblical text for contemporary readers in the Christian tradition
  • we research and teach about the Bible and its reception, interpretation and use in the Church, the academy, and popular culture; investigating its language, historical settings, transmission, enculturation, and the symbiotic relationship that exists between the interpreter's social setting and the interpretation of the text
  • we remain committed to an articulation of Biblical Theology that is consistent with our confession of the Bible as the Word of God

Our approach to Christian Theology is likewise multidisiplinary including systematic, historical, and philosophical methodologies. We research and teach about the development of Christian thought in the Church, the academy, and popular culture; drawing attention to the formative role of Christian thinking in the shaping of the western world, its effect on the global Christian community, and its ongoing afterlife in society at large.
