Item description for Scripture in the Tradition (Milestones in Catholic Theology) by Henri de Lubac, Luke A. J. O'Neill & Peter J. Casarella...
Overview Far from believing that modern exegetical insights and abilities make earlier interpretations of Scripture naive curiosity, de Lubac communicates to the modern reader his own Scripture in the Tradition links the process of exegesis to the foundation of Christian thought, demonstrating that scriptural interpretation is part of the ongoing reflective life of God and unveiling the process by which the human race approaches the mystery of the divine.
Publishers Description The Crossroad Publishing Company once again makes available this examination of the quality and quantity of the "spiritual understanding" of Scripture that developed during the Christian centuries. Far from believing that modern exegetical insights and abilities make earlier interpretations of Scripture naive curiosity, de Lubac communicates to the modern reader his own appreciation and knowledge of the irreplaceably creative role that exegesis of the church fathers and of medieval theologians played in the survival and formulating of Christianity. Even more fundamentally, he links the process of exegesis to the permanent foundation of Christian thought, demonstrating that all forms of scriptural exegesis are part of the ongoing reflective life of God and the process by which the human race learns to share in this mystery.
