What is Theological Interpretation? <i>Kevin Vanhoozer</i>

Theological interpretation is the process of keeping the canonical practices alive and well in the believing community.

The canon is not primarily the source of data for a theoretical science. On the contrary, the canon is a covenantal norm, a norm that regulates our life with God and with one another. We participate in canonical practices by looking and living along the text in ways that recognize the lordship of Jesus Christ.
—Kevin J. Vanhoozer, The Drama of Doctrine, 219.
