This project proposes and prepares an eight-lesson adult study course presenting six different approaches to issues of biblical authority and interpretation through the work of six theologians--Pope Gregory I, Martin Luther, Friedrich Schleiermacher, Benjamin B Warfield, Karl Barth, and Paul Tillich. The first lesson defines terms and uses a questionnaire to determine the understanding of biblical authority and interpretation held by each participant. Subsequent lessons investigate various approaches to these issues, including a sermon by each theologian. The final lesson compares the approaches and considers how they might respond to a contemporary social issue.
