Virtue and the Voice of God: Toward Theology as Wisdom by Daniel J. Treier



Theology has its deepest roots as a course of study that leads to wisdom. Yet with the growth of the academy it began to be sidetracked into a fixation with the predictable results of science.

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.
