The relationship between Scripture and Tradition is of great moment in Orthodox theology. Ever since Apostolic times, the proper understanding of Scripture and Tradition was of crucial importance to the Christian Church, and it assumed even greater importance when heretics like Arius began to misuse Scripture to justify their own deviations. This book presents a readable account of what the Fathers have to say about the interpretation of Holy Scripture and the customs, practices, and doctrines handed down to us from the Apostles themselves, and contrasts Orthodox hermeneutics with Biblical interpretation typical of Protestantism and Roman Catholicism.
