Under the Gaze of the Bible [9780823262328]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Chretien's essays on reading sacred scripture are enriched by his immersion in the classics of ancient philosophy and theology, as well as his poetic sensibility. He is as likely to quote Claudel as Aquinas or Origen. His intimate acquaintance with Patristic writings combines with a sympathetic understanding of such Protestant sources as Luther, Calvin, and Barth to yield an admirably ecumenical perspective. The book's title refers to James 1:23-24, which portrays the Word of God as a mirror into which one gazes. The concomitant notion of not only examining the text but also being examined by the Word is a fruitful one for learning how to be more fully nourished by one's study of the Bible.
AUTHOR: Jean-Louis Chretien teaches philosophy at the University of Paris IV. His books, as translated into English, include The Unforgettable and the Unhoped For (Fordham University Press, 2002), Hand to Hand (Fordham University Press, 2003), and The Call and the Response (Fordham University Press, 2004). He is one of the coeditors of Phenomenology and the Theological Turn : The French Debate (Fordham University Press, 2000), as well as the author of the follow-up volume Phenomenology Wide Open : After the French Debate (Fordham University Press, 2005). JOHN MARSON DUNAWAY is Professor of French and Interdisciplinary Studies at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia.
