Nature and Scripture in the Abrahamic Religions: 1700-Present
The two companion volumes of" Interpreting Nature and Scripture in the Abramic Religions" contribute to a contextual evaluation of the mutual influences between scriptural exegesis and hermeneutics on the one hand and practices or techniques of interpretation in natural philosophy and the natural sciences on the other. We seek to raise the low profile this theme has had both in the history of science and in the history of biblical interpretation. Further, questions about the interpretation of scripture continue to be provoked by current theological reflection on scientific theories. We also seek to provide historical context for renewed reflection on the role of the hermeneutics of scripture in the development of theological doctrines that interact with the natural sciences. Contributors include: J. Matthew Ashley, Robert E. Brown, Elizabeth Chmielewski, Edward B. Davis, Henri W. de Knijff, Marwa Elshakry, Richard England, Menachem Fisch, George Harinck, Bernhard Kleeberg, Scott Mandelbrote, G. Blair Nelson, Alexei V. Nesteruk, Jitse M. van der Meer, R. P. W. (Rob) Visser, and William Yarchin.
