Details

How far can a Jewish book have anything to do with us? How do we explain the violence of the Old Testament? And how much of it is history and how much is symbolism? Konstantinou throws light on confusions, gaps in knowledge and misreadings which burden believers and unbelievers alike. Scripture has often been understood moralistically, in an unhistorical way and without reference to the fact of the Church. And there has been a theological tendency in the Orthodox world to undervalue Scripture, almost bypassing it in our enthusiasm for other texts of church literature (patristic, ascetic, liturgical).
