Participatory Biblical Exegesis Summary

Participatory Biblical Exegesis: A Theology of Biblical Interpretation by Matthew Levering

The interpretation of Scripture has depended largely on the view of history held by theologians and exegetes. In Participatory Biblical Exegesis, Matthew Levering examines the changing views of history that distinguish patristic and medieval biblical exegesis from modern historical-critical exegesis.

Levering argues for a delicate interpretive balance, in which history is understood both as a process that participates in God's creative and redemptive presence and as a set of linear moments. He identifies a split between theological and historical interpretations of scripture beginning in the high Middle Ages, considerably earlier than the emergence of historical-critical methods in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Instead, he offers a vision of Scripture that is rooted in the exegetical practice of St. Thomas Aquinas and his sources but embraces historical-critical research as well.

Participatory Biblical Exegesis provides an original theological basis for critical exegesis. It integrates the work of contemporary exegetes, philosophers, theologians, and historians to provide a compelling vision of biblical interpretation.

Participatory Biblical Exegesis Reviews

"Matthew Levering is among the most prolific young Catholic theologians working today. . . . [He] has published widely on a variety of biblical, historical, and theological subjects. Participatory Biblical Exegesis is an excellent example of his wide-ranging interests and ability to synthesize exegetical, historical, philosophical, and systematic theological discussions. Levering states in the introduction that his purposes are largely constructive; the book weaves together scholarship from all of the aforementioned subdisciplines in support of his argument. Much of this scholarship is contained in the endnotes, which comprise nearly half of the book and are a veritable treasure trove of information for those working in this area." -- Pro Ecclesia
