Scripture in the UCC

How is the authority of Scripture understood and how is Scripture interpreted in The United Church of Canada?

In their new book, The Authority and Interpretation of Scripture in The United Church of Canada (An Intercultural Adventure Part II) St. Andrew's College faculty members HyeRan Kim-Cragg and Don Schweitzer provide insightful and accessible answers to these questions through a study of United Church faith statements and several case studies of denominational-shaping interpretations of Scripture by the United Church.

The result is overview of how the United Church understands Scripture and has tended to interpret it, and a window on one aspect of the United Church’s history. Through this overview, the book also mirrors the importance of Scripture for the church today.

This book was developed with funding from a UCC Responsive Initiatives Grant. It addresses questions concerning the authority and interpretation of Scripture in the United Church being raised by lay members and clergy in the UCC who have recently immigrated to Canada.
