In this essentially scholarly publication, Vanhoozer treats the important issue of contemporary Scripture interpretation. This study involves the field of hermeneutics, and in the introductory chapter the author outlines the topic of 'theology and literary theory'. In this section, he incisively looks at three centuries of literary theory and focuses specifically on the hermeneutics of Augustine.
