Figuring the Sacred

Full Product Description

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
practical theology

Ricoeur's hermeneutical orientation and his deep sensitivity to the mystery and power of religious language offer fresh insight into the transformative potential of sacred literature, including the Bible.

Figuring the Sacred by Ricoeur was published by Augsburg Fortress Publishers in January 1959 and is our 37822nd best seller. The ISBN for Figuring the Sacred is 9780800628949.
