About this Book

In Scriptural Interpretation, Sarisky brilliantly draws together Patristic Theology and a theological interpretation of Scripture in the modern day, to examine Scripture's central place in the life of the Church and ordinary believers.

  • Examines the importance of scriptural interpretation in the life of Christians and of the church 
  • Draws together two lively discussions: a study of the theology of the Cappadocian fathers, and a discussion of theological interpretation of Scripture in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries
  • Covers an impressive historical range, from Basil of Caesarea right up to the work of the major contemporary thinkers, Stanley Hauerwas and Rowan Williams
  • Offers a sophisticated understanding of many Patristic thinkers - an area of huge current interest in the field - and challenges accepted readings of the theology of Basil of Caesarea
