Praise Seeking Understanding

Reading the Psalms with Augustine
$28.99
($32.00)
Praise Seeking Understanding sits at the intersection of three important fields in theology: that of theological exegesis, Augustinian studies and contemporary Church practice.  Jason Byassee deftly brings the three together, revealing an importantly symbiotic relationship between them - a relationship that has hitherto been largely ignored.
Though current exegetical methods have swung away from a Christological reading of the Old Testament, rejecting in particular Augustine's treatment of the text, Jason Byassee believes that is a mistake we must remedy.  Using a recent translation of Augustine's Enmarrationes in Psalmos, Byassee describes in depth Augustine's psalm hermeneutic and his approach to scripture generally, offering a defense of these views in conversation with recent work in theological exegesis.
