Theologian Ephraim Radner's Time and the Word presents the first significant theological account of the foundations and methods of the figural reading of Scripture, reintroducing contemporary scholars to a traditional approach to biblical interpretation that dates back to Jewish practice from before the time of Jesus.While figural interpretation continued in prominence throughout the early church, the Middle Ages, and the early modern period, it was eventually forcefully rejected with the rise of historical criticism.

Embracing 'spiritual,' 'allegorical,' and 'prophetical' ways of understanding the Bible, figural reading once offered a broad approach to reading Scripture—an approach that Ephraim Radner here engages through a foundational theological lens. In this groundbreaking study in biblical theology, Radner reclaims the patristic practice of figural interpretation of Scripture by uncovering the theological presuppositions of figural reading, historically and philosophically, focusing especially on the Christian understanding of time and the divine. He then moves from the theoretical to the concrete, looking at examples of how figural reading of the Bible gives rise to specific doctrinal claims about God and informs Christian teaching and preaching.
