9780809143443: Understanding the Bible: A Basic Introduction to Biblical Interpretation

In this revised and expanded edition of UNDERSTANDING THE BIBLE, the author surveys the major trends in the major theories in biblical interpretation from ancient times to the present, and notes the contributions and limitations of each period. He shows how the Bible itself interprets earlier texts and he places into coherent perspective the diverse and often contradictory interpretations of scripture, culminating with a detailed examination of Dei Verbum of Vatican II and the Pontifical Biblical Commission's The Interpretation of the Bible in the Church.

Highlights:
* unparalleled comprehensive overview of biblical interpretation in historical perspective
* a must for anyone teaching the Bible, since it deals with the assumptions with which we approach every biblical text
* solid scholarship without being overly technical

About the Author:

George T. Montague, SM, is a professor of biblical theology at St. Mary's University, San Antonio, TX. He is the author of numerous books on scripture. He has served as president of the Catholic Biblical Association of America and as editor of the Catholic Biblical Quarterly. He is also a popular speaker internationally.

Review:

An extraordinarily unified vision not only of contemporary interpretive methodologies but of the entire history of Christian biblical interpretation.... [the author shows how] ancient approaches anticipate insights that fully emerge only in the modern period....This work would be a valuable addition to any library, a worthwhile text for seminary and graduate courses, and a source of deep enrichment for any serious student of the Bible. --Terence J. Keegan, Providence College, Review of the First Edition in Journal of Biblical Literature
