Seeking to train readers to "hear all that is being said" within a written text, Peter Leithart advocates a hermeneutics of the letter that is not rigidly literalist and looks to learn to read--not just the Bible, but everything--from Jesus and Paul. Thus Deep Exegesis explores the nature of reading itself--taking clues from Jesus and Paul on the meaning of meaning, the functions of language, and proper modes of interpretation. By looking (and listening) closely, and by including passages from the Bible and other literary sources, Leithart aims to do for the text what Jesus did for the blind man in John 9: to make new by opening eyes. The book is a powerful invitation to enter the depths of a text.

About the Author:

Peter J. Leithart is President of the Theopolis Institute and the author of more than twenty books, including Deep Exegesis: The Mystery of Reading Scripture.

Review:

Magnificent. Leithart displays his extraordinary ability to make interpretation exciting.

(Matthew Levering, Associate Professor of Theology, Ave Maria University)

As a biblical reader of profound insight, Peter Leithart has long cultivated the practice of exegesis. His depth of experience as a reader gives these hermeneutical reflections an authority and nuance one rarely finds in our theory-saturated age.

(R.R. Reno, Professor of Theological Ethics, Creighton University, and Features Editor of First Things)

A wonderful book. Drawing on his wide reading, Peter Leithart builds up a way of exploring the depths of meaning to be found in the scriptural text. Christians of all stripes will find this an inspiring and utterly accessible work.

(Andrew Louth, Professor of Patristic and Byzantine Studies, Durham University)
