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.

Decent introduction to the subject. His categories are dated (but not too badly). It is a bit dry, but has good information and will introduce the reader to many authors that other works ignore.

Some helpful content, but very dry -- it took me forever to finish this short book. I wouldn't recommend it as an introduction to the topic.
