The emerging discipline of Biblical Spirituality considers how faith finds expression within the biblical texts and how modern expressions of faith interact with those texts. This volume systematically collects the author's reflective, analytical, and exegetical contributions to the field in order to explore how biblical texts mediate faith, both ancient and contemporary, in theory and in practice. It reflects on aspects of the interaction of faith and Scripture, critically approaching both dimensions. The volume incorporates insights from North American, British, Dutch, German, French, and South African scholarly traditions and intends to stimulate further thought among scholars interested in this small but internationally expanding discipline.
Christo Lombaard is Professor of Christian Spirituality in the College of Human Sciences at the University of South Africa. He is a recipient of the Krister Stendahl Medal in Biblical Studies, awarded by the Graduate Theological Foundation in recognition of this volume.
