Finally 7 Aug 2000
By Mark McEntire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Those who have appreciated Ricouer's hermeneutics over the last few decades, whether they tend to agree or disagree with him, will rejoice that a sampling of biblical exegesis from Ricouer has finally appeared in this volume. Further, Ricouer has found a powerful dialogue partner in the well-know biblical scholar Adnre Lacocque. Ricouer's correlational approach comes through nicely in his discussion of selected biblical texts. The opening discussion of Genesis 2-3 is particlarly poignant. The books strengths also produce its weaknesses. There is only a sampling of texts here. How would Ricouer apprach the understanding of an entire biblical book? We still do not know. The inclusion of Lacocque's work is quite welcome, but it means that only half the book is Ricouer. One of the hermeneutical giants of the last half of the twentieth century appears to be nearing the end of his career. One can only hope that more application of his method to the Bible is forthcoming, but at least we have this one volume.
