Chapter Summary

The front matter section of this book Nature and Scripture in the Abrahamic Religions: Up to 1700. The book explores how the development of different styles of interpretation found in reading scripture (the Tanakh, the Christian Bible, the Qur?an) and nature, helped to transform ideas of both the written word and the created world over several centuries, and how this engagement was affected by the larger cultural context. The approach is historical. The period of interest covers the last two millennia up to the present. The book focuses on specific strategies of interpretation and on hermeneutical principles that shape knowledge of God and nature in interaction with contextual influences.

Keywords: Abrahamic Religions; Christian Bible; Qur?an
