Stuart Parsons: Ancient Apologetic Exegesis

For some, these might be mere quibbles. Aside from them, Parsons’s book is a fine introduction to Theophilus’ exegetical practice. It is mostly nontechnical, and moves through the subject in a way that is reader-friendly. There is no question that more people should be acquainted with Theophilus—we might think of him as bridging the gap between Justin Martyr and Irenaeus—and Parsons does as good a job as any other recent scholar in tracing the main lines of this important figure’s approach to Scripture.
