The church within the West has subsisted for 5 hundred years in a nation of ever-increasing a number of identities, a lot of which declare to be the easiest illustration of the church tested via Christ. usually attending novel versions of the church are new scriptural interpretive tools that aid theological claims. hardly ever, even though, has an exploration been undertaken to check the impression of this ecclesiological department at the examining of the Bible. A Darkened Reading explores the explicit case of the nineteenth-century Church of britain and competing interpretations of the publication of the prophet Isaiah--a booklet of significant value in theological history--as one of those parable of the existential discomfort the church has skilled because of being torn apart.

"Robert L. Knetsch's account of nineteenth-century biblical interpretation forces us to take care of the ways in which a divided church distorts our analyzing of holy Scripture. Even people who are no longer confident by means of all of his arguments will locate considering them time good spent. A Darkened interpreting is a jeremiad that laments how a home divided turns the home of the interpreter right into a bleak residence. this can be a haunting, provocative book."
