Principles of Biblical Interpretation for the Parish
Dr. James Voelz is currently working on a book designed to teach hermeneutics to interested laypeople in a parish setting. This workshop will present this material to pastors for feedback and discussion on its propriety for parishioners. Laypeople also are welcome to attend. After the course, pastors will have material to use as a basis for a course in interpreting the Bible that is suitable for their flock.
