Learning from the Past : Essays on Reception, Catholicity, and Dialogue in Honour of Anthony N. S. Lane Hardback
This collection of essays in honour of Anthony N. S. Lane has two main foci, picking up themes which resonate with some of Lane's most important work.
The first broad theme is the reception of the thought of earlier generations of biblical interpreters and theologians.
The essays here explore various facets of reception history-textual transmission, the identification of editions used, the deployment of these sources in doctrinal formulation, in polemic, and in relation to the contested site of 'catholicity'.
The second broad theme is engagement with other confessional identities and allegiances.
The essays presented here shed light on the past and stimulate contemporary theological reflection.
