In Captive to the Word of God eminent theologian Miroslav Volf invites readers to dip with him into the deep well of Scripture to look over his shoulder as he engages actively with the Bible, which, as he notes, is at once a sacred text, a witness to Jesus Christ, and the site of God's self-revelation for the sake of humanity's salvation.After a probing explanation of how and why he uses Scripture to shape theological thought, Volf applies his interpretive principles to 1 Peter, the Gospel of John, 1 John, and Ecclesiastes. Volf's explorations far from esoteric reflections emanating out of a theological bubble get at the heart of some of the most real and perplexing religious quandaries of our time: pluralism, materialism, Muslim-Christian relations, how Christians ought to relate to their surrounding culture, and what it really means to say that 'God is love.' Together, these chapters inspire a vision of life that is informed by Scripture and lived lovingly and joyfully before God and with others.Table of Contents PART IDoing Theology1.
