Influence of the Doctrine of Scripture

How Beliefs about the Bible Affect the Way It Is Read

«

There is a lot written about how Christians should interpret the Bible, but finding out what they actually do when they read it, and why, is a much trickier thing to explore. Anna Hutchinson reports on her research of groups of Evangelical Anglicans reading specific passages of Scripture and shows what these encounters reveal about the way that readers create meaning in different ways. This is a clearly written account of a valuable research project that helps us to think creatively about the place of the Bible in the lives of ordinary Christians today. This book is another important piece of the jigsaw for those who believe the Bible is crucial for faith today but need a more thoughtful understanding of how that can be a reality rather than a vague hope.

This well-grounded study helpfully blends theological analysis with empirical observation to probe how evangelical UK Anglicans read the Bible in dialogue with their doctrinal commitments. Hutchinson probes thoughtfully into multiple important issues, such as the priority of the doctrine of God over the doctrine of scripture, the way that doctrinal framing can overtake hermeneutics, and the propensity to over-focus on application rather than transformation. A consistently engaging and reflective study that raises excellent questions for further refining an evangelical Anglican approach to scripture.

More than any other Christian tradition, arguably, Evangelicals claim to cherish the Bible and its truth claims. But does that really work out in everyday life? Anna Hutchinson’s empirical study of the practical realities of Evangelical biblical understanding and interpretation offers ground-breaking insight into the ways in which the Bible does—and doesn’t!—shape people’s lives and thinking. Highly recommended insights for anyone who is interested in the contemporary shape of British Christianity and the role of the Bible in theology and public life.
