Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of this book. The special contribution of the book regarding the investigation of Heikki Rӓisӓnen's writings and theology, is in the treatment of his Finnish publications. There is important material that has never been translated into English or any other language. The most important of these is his early article "Raamatun auktoriteetista" from 1972. Regarding Rӓisӓnen's interpretation theory, the main task of the book is to explore and define the nature of his hermeneutical theory. The book investigates the nature of Rӓisӓnen's hermeneutics in the light of a much wider perspective on the development of biblical research. It presents new insights on the understanding of the whole course of scientific biblical criticism and especially biblical interpretation, also called scriptural hermeneutics. The book contains broad analyses, including scholars other than Rӓisӓnen as well.

Keywords: Biblical criticism; Biblical interpretation; Heikki Rӓisӓnen; hermeneutical theory; Raamatun auktoriteetista
