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.
