Performing the Scriptures: New Credo Podcast with Kevin J. Vanhoozer

Why did Kevin Vanhoozer become a theologian? What is theo-drama and why did it prove to be the model Vanhoozer needed for his students? Is doctrine a guide for right performance of our holy script? Why is it so critical that theologians see every doctrine of the faith through a trinitarian lens? How should theology influence our interpretation of scripture?

In this new episode of the Credo podcast, Matthew Barrett is joined by Kevin Vanhoozer to discuss why Vanhoozer first became a theologian and what influenced him to rethink theology under the spotlight of performance.

Kevin J. Vanhoozer (PhD, Cambridge University) is Research Professor of Systematic Theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, where he has served intermittently for over 20 years. Vanhoozer has also served as Blanchard Professor of Theology at Wheaton College and Graduate School (2008-11) and as Senior Lecturer in Theology and Religious Studies at New College in the University of Edinburgh (1990-98). He is the author and editor of numerous volumes including Is There a Meaning in this Text?: The Bible, the Reader, and the Morality of Literary Knowledge, Dictionary for Theological Interpretation of the Bible, The Drama of Doctrine: A Canonical-Linguistic Approach to Christian Theology, Faith Speaking Understanding: Performing the Drama of Doctrine, First Theology: God, Scripture, and Hermeneutics, and Biblical Authority after Babel: Retrieving the Solas in the Spirit of Mere Protestant Christianity.
