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
