Publisher's Description

Seeking to train readers to ahear all that is being saida within a written text, Peter Leithart advocates a hermeneutics of the letter that is not rigidly literalist and looks to learn to readanot just the Bible, but everything--from Jesus and Paul. Thus "Deep Exegesis" explores the nature of reading itselfataking 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.
