The recent books of exegete R. W. L. Moberly (The God of the Old Testament) and theologian Darren Sarisky (Reading the Bible Theologically) provide an opportunity for taking stock of the “theological interpretation of Scripture” (hereafter TIS).

Supporting this suggestion will involve, first, setting the historical scene; second, sketching the two books’ hermeneutical contributions; and third, sharing some questions about sustaining the heritage that some TIS advocates seek to recover.
