Item Description...
Explores the essential place of wisdom and virtue in theology

Publishers Description
Theology has its deepest roots as a course of study that leads to wisdom. Yet with the growth of the academy it began to be sidetracked into a fixation with the "predictable" results of science.

In this illuminating study, Daniel Treier retrieves this older, deeper understanding and connects wisdom in theological education to the theological interpretation of scripture, giving rise to a renewed understanding to the role of virtue. Engaging in dialogue with a number of prominent proponents of theological interpretation of scripture, Treier builds on a biblical theology of wisdom that involves daily lives of all God's people. Ultimately, Treier connects educational discussions of theology and hermeneutical discussions through a Trinitarian understanding of wisdom. As a result, the increasingly diverse forms and social locations of theology can be integrated into the mainstream of theological reflection.

Filled with interdisciplinary wisdom, "Virtue and the Voice of God" is a timely recovery of the essential conversation between theological education, virtue and the interpretation of scripture.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Worth reading  Apr 9, 2010
B. Birk's review is not only too short but it is misleading. Treier's volume is an excellent resource for those interested in the discussion of theology as wisdom, theological education, and what has become known as theological exegesis. As summarized elsewhere, Treier "connects wisdom in theological education to the theological interpretation of scripture, giving rise to a renewed understanding of the role of virtue in each." However, the book is not limited to these topics. Overall, it is clear, engaging, and well reasoned (these qualities can also be found in his Introducing Theological Interpretation of Scripture [Baker Academic, 2008]). Please don't let Birk's review lead you astray.
Not worth the effort  Sep 19, 2008
Had to read it for a theology seminar, and even the prof. came away disappointed with the choice. It takes six chapters of jargon for Treier to finally make a weak point.
