 Amazon.com: People of the Book: Christian Identity and Literary Culture: Books: David , Lyle Jeffrey   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
In this book David Lyle Jeffrey seeks to characterize illustratively the historical commitment of Christianity to the literacy and literature of Western culture.
Jeffrey contends that Christianity has not historically embraced logocentrism, and his book is a brilliant survey of the ways that Christians have historically read texts.
Beginning with the Bible and moving through the entire history of Western literature, he demonstrates that Christian readers have traditionally embraced polysemous meaning in both sacred and secular texts; it was not until very late that Westerners decided that words had absolute referents that could be fully understood.
