A Short History of the Interpretation of the Bible

Synopsis

"The book represents the kind of collaboration that one wishes could go on all the time. Here, in other words, the interdependence of two specializations (biblical and philsophical theology) is made explicit in both theory and in reflection on scriptures."? Commonweal"This book was originally published about twenty years ago and then unfortunately went out of print. It was such a remarkable helpful little book that many people clamored for its reappearance. Finally, Fortress Press has responded by bringing out Grant's original study on the history of biblical exegesis in the church from the first century to the present with a theoretical afterword written by the Roman Catholic theologian David Tracy. The result is an immensely useful and readable study of both the history and hermeneutics of Bible interpretation."? The Spire, The Divinity School, Vanderbilt University
