This dualism can't be triumph over just by a choice to larger devotion or the beneficiant goal of including pious observation to an exegesis which has now not, from the start, been according to faith.
This booklet presents a good contribution to the hermeneutical challenge on the center of present exegetical debate, the prestige of exegesis, addressing such questions as: Does exegesis have a theological personality? may still it have one? If it does have one, would it then lose its medical personality? therefore one arrives on the major query: how can one conceive of an exegesis that's whilst severe and theological? How can religion be the root of exegesis from the start? may religion relatively be the "Fount of Exegesis"?
