This is a good book for someone who has a little knowledge of church history but wants to learn a bit more about biblical interpretation in the early church into the early Patristic era. Not a lot of quotes from the sources, but he gives a pretty good sense of the hermeneutical tendencies in the biblical commentators from the East and West of the first 5 Centuries of Christianity. Good introduction to the topic.
