In Dominico Eloquio / In Lordly Eloquence : Essays on Patristic Exegesis in Honor of Robert Louis Wilken
Edited by Paul M. Blowers, Angela Russell Christman and David G. Hunter
From The Publisher:
This volume gathers fresh perspectives on the development of biblical interpretation and other important themes in the study of Christian authors from the patristic period. Covering such central figures as Origen, Augustine, and Gregory of Nyssa, as well as less familiar figures, these compelling studies offer a rich variety of perspectives on the ways that church fathers used the Bible theologically, devotionally, liturgically, ethically, and pastorally. Written by established and emerging scholars in the field, this volume not only honors the career of Robert Louis Wilken, one of today's foremost historians of early Christianity, but also represents the state of the art in patristics scholarship.

These are sophisticated, scholarly essays treating patristic exegesis, a subject to which Robert Wilken has devoted much of his distinguished scholarly career. One of the most important aspects of this volume is that it, like Wilken himself, takes patristic exegesis seriously and allows it to have a voice in the ongoing discussion of the meanings and uses of Scripture.
