Product Description

While traditional doctrinal and historical interpretations rely heavily on rational analysis, the impact of Scripture is mainly on the human heart. Examining this impact in the light of linguistic and literary theory, feminism, structuralism, Jungianism, deconstructionism, the analysis of archaic imagery and myth, the recovery of Gnostic texts, and finally an openness to pluralism, whether ethnic, geographic, religious, or interpretive, Schuyler Brown explores scripture today. He explains that texts are not simply storehouses of knowledge but rather "a vineyard" (Hugh of St. Victor) to be tilled for the reader's nurture and pleasure.

Publisher's Description

Traditional doctrinal and historical interpretation relies heavily on rational analysis. But it has been the impact of scripture upon the human heart that has changed human lives. In recent decades, advances in linguistic and literary theory have strengthened this impact through such disparate influences as feminism, structuralism and deconstruction, Jungian psychology, the analysis of archaic imagery and myth, the recovery of Gnostic texts, and finally openness to pluralism, whether ethnic, geographic, religious or interpretive. Brown explores these themes and offers a dynamic new way of looking at scripture and the soul.
