Principles of Biblical Interpretation for Everyone
This workshop will center around the presenter’s book, Principles of Biblical Interpretation for Everyone (Concordia Seminary Press, 2023). The book takes readers into the text of the Bible and helps them to understand the important factors that go into interpreting it. Participants are required to purchase the book ahead of time and to read through Chapter 8 before the workshop. They will then delve into the book’s content with the presenter as he answers questions and gives clarifications. Significant pre-workshop reading is a requirement. The book can be purchased online from the Concordia Seminary Campus Store. You will receive a coupon code to purchase the book at a discounted price of $20 in your registration confirmation email.
