About this product
- DescriptionThe patristic doctrine of Scripture is an understudied topic. Recent scholars, however, have shown considerable interest in patristic exegetical strategies and methods - from rhetoric and typology, to theory and method; far less attention, though, has been paid to the early Christian understanding of the nature of Scripture itself. This volume explores the patristic vision of the Bible - the understanding of Scripture as the word of life and salvation, the theological, liturgical, and ascetical practice of reading-and is anchored by keyte essays from Fr. John McGuckin, Paul Blowers, and Michael Legaspi. The purpose is to reopen a consideration of the doctrine of Scripture for contemporary theology, rooted in the tradition of the Church Fathers (Greek, Latin, and Oriental), an endeavor inspired by the theological vision of the twentieth century's foremost Orthodox Christian theologian, Fr. Georges Florovsky. Our interest is t in mere description of historical uses of Scripture or interpretive methods, but rather in the very nature of Scripture itself and its place within the whole ecomy of creation, revelation, and salvation.
