Gupta Reviews Joel Green's Practicing Theological Interpretation

I am grateful for Nijay Gupta's brief review of Joel Green's Practicing Theological Interpretation. I have added this book to my Amazon wishlist.

Practicing Theological Interpretation: Engaging Biblical Texts for Faith and Formation
(Theological Explorations for the Church Catholic)
Joel B. Green
Baker Academic, 2012
160 pages

1. Living Faithfully in Exile: Who Reads the Bible Well?
2. Neglecting Widows and Serving the Word? "History" and Theological Interpretation
3. Scripture and Classical Christology: The "Rule of Faith" and Theological Interpretation
4. John Wesley, Wesleyans, and Theological Interpretation: Learning from a Premodern Interpreter

I am reading through the Dictionary for Theological Interpretation of the Bible and am profiting from it.  Joel Green is also a contributor to this dictionary, having written the following articles: Commentaries, Context, Dictionaries and Encyclopedias; and Narrative Theology.  I am not out of the As yet, so I'll come to Green's articles after a while.

Another work along these lines that I would recommend is Daniel Treier's Introducing Theological Interpretation of Scripture: Recovering a Christian Practice (Baker Academic, 2008).
