Chris Green – Sanctifying Interpretation
Episode: Chris Green is on the show to talk about how God is not saving us from interpretation, but through it – a process that can be “soul harrowing and purgative.” Chris talks about problematic and more helpful models of Scripture and its interpretation, his appreciation for George MacDonald, approaches to troublesome texts, and we even have a brief poetry reading from the poetry collection Bigly. All these things and more await you in this one jam-packed episode on the second edition of his Sanctifying Interpretation.
Guest: Chris Green is Professor of Public Theology at Southeastern University in Lakeland, FL. He’s the author of several books, including Surprised by God, The End is Music: A Companion to Robert W. Jenson’s Theology (Cascade), Toward a Pentecostal Theology of the Lord’s Supper(CPT Press) and Sanctifying Interpretation: Vocation, Holiness, and Scripture (CPT Press). His current research interests are focused on the doctrine of God, Pentecostal spirituality, and issues of racial/ethnic injustice. Chris serves as Teaching Pastor at Sanctuary Church (Tulsa, OK), and he is also a visual artist.
