Paul Ricoeur is one of the most prolific philosophers alive today. Many studies have been done on Ricoeur's philosophy, but very little on his theological trajectory and its connection to Biblical hermeneutics. Living Hermeneutics in Motion brings to light the diverse ways in which Ricoeur's hermeneutic revolutions concerning a meaningful text can be useful, specifically in the area of biblical interpretation. Situated within the modern- post modern interpretative tumult, this book is interested in ascertaining if Ricoeur's richly sedimented and hermeneutically complex orientation can offer an alternative to modernist "sharp boundaries" and postmodern "radical indeterminacy."
