Item Description...
Overview
The thought of Paul Ricoeur continues its profound effect on theology, religious studies, and biblical interpretation. Introduced by Mark Wallace, the twenty-one papers collected in this volume-some familiar, many translated here for the first time-constitute the most comprehensive anthology of Ricoeur's writings in religion since 1970. The writings are thematically divided into five parts: the study of religion, philosophers of religion, the Bible and genre, theological overtures and practical theology.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Comprehensive Contemporary Theology   Mar 12, 2008
Ricoeur's work in the areas of hermeneutics and theology has been invaluable, and the essays contained in this book are particularly poignant and accessible. His work on Memory and Suffering alone make the book an excellent purchase, and every essay attests to the irreducible nature of God, Scripture, and Theology in a way few authors have done. An excellent work.
 
Pretty dense reading for the layman  Nov 13, 2006
I have read a lot of Ricoeur, mostly in the area of religion. I am not a professional philosopher, just an educated layman. This one contained a lot of material that was technical and I found myself glossing over whole paragraphs and pages to find the meat. The meat was there, as always, but not as much as in the Conflict of Interpretations, for instance.
