About-

Recent theological discussions between Catholics and Evangelicals have generated a renewed appreciation for God's ongoing use of Scripture for self-mediation to the Church. Noting the significant influence of Henri de Lubac (one of the drafters of Dei Verbum and proponent of a renewal of the Patristic and Medieval emphasis on a spiritual sense of Scripture), and Kevin Vanhoozer (the leading Evangelical proponent of a theological interpretation of Scripture), Kevin Storer seeks to draw Evangelical and Catholic theologians into dialogue about God's ongoing use of Scripture in the economy of redemption. Storer suggests that a number of traditional tensions between Catholics and Evangelicals, such as the literal or spiritual sense of Scripture, a sacramental or a covenantal model of God's self-mediation, and an emphasis on the authority of Scripture or the authority of the Church, can be eased by shifting greater focus upon God's ongoing use of creaturely realities for the building of the Church in union with Christ. This project seeks to enable Evangelicals to appropriate the insights of de Lubac's Catholic Ressourcement project, while also encouraging Catholic theologians to appreciate Vanhoozer's Evangelical emphasis on God's use of the literal sense of Scripture to build the Church.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"With St. Jerome, Catholics and Protestants agree that 'ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.' But in the face of divergent theological and methodological commitments, how can interpreters from these communities acquire a synoptic view? Kevin Storer's trenchant analysis of de Lubac and Vanhoozer escorts readers to the Catholic/Protestant intersection to discover the answer."
--Chris Castaldo, Director of the Ministry of Gospel Renewal, Wheaton College, Wheaton, IL

"With Reading Scripture to Hear God, Kevin Storer makes a very valuable contribution to scholarship on the theological interpretation of Scripture. His comparative analysis of the programs of Kevin Vanhoozer and Henri de Lubac is clear, sophisticated, and constructive. This book reinforces how the theological interpretation of Scripture can be a mutually enriching, collaborative field of study for Protestants and Catholics."
--William M. Wright IV, Associate Professor of Theology, Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, PA
