In 2003, White Horse Inn co-host Michael Horton interviewed D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. As we feel this subject is still relevant–especially to this issue on "Interpreting Scripture" and in particular to Kevin Vanhoozer's article (see page 16) on biblical studies versus theology–we are […]
