Description

The book you are holding is a small museum. On its pages hang portraits of Christianity's "masters of the sacred page": Gregory of Nyssa, Augustine of Hippo, Benedict of Nursia, Maximus Confessor, Thomas Aquinas, Martin Luther, and Charles Wesley. Other, surprising figures also appear: Shakespeare, Washington, and Lincoln. How did these great thinkers interpret Scripture? What might their diverse approaches teach today's readers of the Old and New Testaments? What's missing in contemporary biblical interpretation that an awareness of the history of exegesis might complete? Join Clifton Black as he traverses the Bible, church history, systematic theology, Elizabethan drama, and American politics: retrieving premodern insights for a postmodern world, Reading Scripture with the Saints.
