Constitutional Interpretation

Have been working on a paper, so I’ve not had a lot of time in the last few days. One of my books I’ve become good friends with is Keith Whittington’s Constitutional Interpretation: Textual Meaning, Original Intent, & Judicial Review. An interesting read with lots of implications for my thinking about biblical interpretation. It’s part of the “new originalist” literature; rather than original intent, it is original meaning as understood by the ratifiers. Which leads to all sort of interesting things. Back to work, I’m afraid!
