What is a definitive standard for Biblical interpretation? Our guest is Dr. Craig Carter. He’s professor of theology at Tyndale University College and Seminary, and his most recent book--Interpreting Scripture with the Great Tradition: Recovering the Genius of Premodern Exegesis-- is a robust defense of bible interpretation grounded in the Trinitarian theology of the Nicene tradition.

Dr. Carter walks us through the exegetical process that defined the orthodoxy we observe today. We’ll consider several historical figures, including Thomas Aquinas, and such intriguing subjects as Christian Platonism.

Tune in for this compelling conversation, and discover whether Bible interpretation is a task for scholars only. You may be surprised by what Dr. Carter’s has to say!
