Back cover copy

The Sermon on the Mount through the Centuries offers an engaging approach to the study of historical theology and biblical exegesis. Stellar contributing scholars examine various interpretative approaches to the Sermon on the Mount, providing glimpses into historical perspectives on a passage that distills the very essence of the teaching of Jesus. The important contribution of this volume--beyond its insightful survey of the interpretative work of influential biblical scholars and theologians through the ages--lies in its integrative treatment of the subjects, bringing together the disciplines of church history, biblical exegesis, and theology. The authors shed light on the many and varied approaches to scripture, examining theological traditions and historical, social, and political contexts, as well as substantial points of agreement.
