Sept. 12, 2011 - PRLog -- Energion Publications announces the October 17, 2011 release of From Inspiration to Understanding: Reading the Bible Seriously and Faithfully by Edward W. H. Vick, a comprehensive volume relating inspiration to methods of interpretation.

The way in which we read the Bible grows out of what we believe the Bible to be. Thus it is impossible to discuss methods of interpretation without considering our view of inspiration, the gathering of the canon, and even the reception of the Bible by the community of faith. And so, Edward W. H. Vick starts this comprehensive discussion of hermeneutics—the interpretation of Scripture—by looking at what the Bible is, and what empowers its authority. He brings a lifetime of experience, teaching and writing to the task.

In this examination, he takes up such diverse topics as inspiration, canonization, authority, infallibility, inerrancy, verbal inspiration, sola scriptura, tradition, myth, and many related topics. Dr. Vick always relates these elements to the overarching questions: How shall we read Scripture? How shall we understand it? How does it impact the way we live and act?

There are many books on how to read the Bible, but there are few that will offer this comprehensive and systematic study. If you apply the principles you find here to your own study, you will find the scriptures opening up in new ways. Dr. Vick will help you move beyond the assumptions that often stand in the way of our personal Bible study and see the remarkable variety and power that is mediated through this book we call the Bible.

From Inspiration to Understanding (http://energionpubs.com/books/1893729109/) will be about 390 pages, including front and back matter, and will be available via Energion Direct and through a variety of online retailers.

Edward W. H. Vick was born in Sussex, England and grew up in Berkshire. He is a graduate of London (BD), Nottingham (BA Philosophy), Oxford (B.Litt.), and Vanderbilt (Ph.D.) Universities.

He is a teacher of wide experience, having taught for many years at Canadian Union College, Alberta (Canada) and at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary, Andrews University, Michigan (USA). Later he was Head of Religious Studies Department, Forest Fields College, Nottingham, England.

He is now retired and teaches philosophy in local Adult Education programs.

He is married with a son and two daughters, and four grandchildren.
