Prof Insights: Faculty-Led Workshop 2021 – Professor Voelz in Mentor, OH
Principles of Biblical Interpretation for the Parish
Dr. James W. Voelz is currently working on a book designed to teach hermeneutics to interested laypeople in a parish setting. He would like to present this material to pastors and receive feedback on its propriety for their parishioners. Lay people also will benefit from workshop participation. After the workshop, pastors will have material to use as a basis for a course in interpreting the Bible that is suitable for their flock.
