Praise Seeking Understanding: An Augustinian Defense of Christological Reading of the Old Testament
- Author / Artist▼▲
- Top Rated▼▲
Though current exegetical methods have swung away from a Christological reading of the Old Testament---rejecting in particular Augustine's treatment of the text---Byassee believes that is a mistake we must remedy. Using a recent translation of Augustine's Enarrationes in Psalmos, Byassee describes in depth Augustine's psalm hermeneutic and his approach to scripture generally, offering a defense of these views in conversation with recent work in theological exegesis.
Jason Byassee is an assistant editor of The Christian Century. He is also the author of Reading Augustine: A Guide to the Confessions.
