Editorial Reviews


“Exegetical speculations on sacred scripture and the divine oeconomia have, since antiquity, been guided by the idea of accommodation, which has a long and meandering history. Hoon J. Lee's wonderful study takes up its story in seventeenth-century Holland before turning to Germany and the debates which occurred over accommodation during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The volume covers important new ground. Previous research has generally treated either earlier historical periods or individual thinkers like Chrysostom, Calvin, or Turrettini. This is a welcome and exciting work:  fresh, perceptive, and engaging.” (Jon Balserak, author of Divinity Compromised: A Study of Divine Accommodation in the Thought of John Calvin, UK)

From the Back Cover

This book redresses a misunderstanding in the history of biblical interpretation. Hoon J. Lee provides the first study of the biblical accommodation debate of the Enlightenment. The heavily contested doctrine spurred numerous biblical scholars, theologians, and philosophers to debate the nature of divine revelation communicated through human words. As biblical accommodation was coupled with historical criticism, the participants in this literary debate fought over the authority, inspiration, and inerrancy of the Bible.

 Examining the wide range of writing on the doctrine of accommodation, Lee surveys the Dutch discussion of accommodation that leads up to the German debate. In doing so, he provides the historical development of Augustinian and Socinian accommodation.
