Interpreting the Bible.

Mickelsen, A. Berkeley,

Interpreting the Bible. [print] - Grand Rapids, Eerdmans [(c)1963. - xiv, 425 pages 24 cm.



The meaning of the Bible is involved with a multiplicity of historical events, peoples, institutions, and languages. Dr. Mickelsen shuns both the approach of proud rationalism, which would bring the Bible to account before the bar of human reason, and the approach of false pietism, which would subject the Bible to unstable feeling. Professor Mickelsen points the way to biblically acceptable principles and procedures, and urges upon interpreters a greater awareness that interpretation must always take place in the love of God and in the Spirit of Christ, of whom the Scriptures are the supreme witness.
