Sacred text and Interpretation
Perspectives in Orthodox Biblical Studies
Edited by Theodore G. Stylianopoulos

"Orthodox exegesis, such as presented in this book, offers a strong and original contribution to biblical studies through philological expertise and theological sensibility. This volume recognizes the eminent role played by Savas Agourides, as a pioneer and mentor."
Fran├žois Bovon, Frothingham Professor of the Histoyy of Religion The Divinity School, Harvard University

". . . a milestone in modern Orthodox biblical interpretation. The contributors illustrate the promise of a truly holistic approach that combines historical and literary analysis, respect for patristic tradition, hermeneutical concern, and theological and spiritual significance. Their essays are both a fitting tribute to Professor Agourides and a challenge to carry on the project that he has pioneered so successfully."
Daniel J. Harrington, S.J., Professor of New Testament Weston Jesuit School of Theology

"This volume celebrates and exemplifies the vitality of current biblical scholarship in the Orthodox tradition. On the one hand, these essays show the now common acceptance and mastery of historical criticism by Orthodox scholars. On the other hand, the collection as a whole is distinguished by the traditional Orthodox engagement with patristic sources, and also by a concern for hermeneutical issues. This is a worthy tribute to Savas Agourides, who has labored for more than half a century to promote critical biblical scholarship in the Orthodox world."
John J. Collins, Holmes Professor of Old Testament Yale University
