A Darkened Reading
A Reception History of the Book of Isaiah in a Divided Church
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Robert L. Knetsch's account of nineteenth-century biblical interpretation forces us to attend to the ways that a divided church distorts our reading of holy Scripture. Even those who are not convinced by all of his arguments will find contemplating them time well spent. A Darkened Reading is a jeremiad that laments how a house divided turns the house of the interpreter into a bleak house. This is a haunting, provocative book."
