English commentary: "Through the Radical Enlightenment's embrace of Spinoza, and the many eighteenth-century responses to Spinoza, we can see the influence Spinoza's work had on future generations of scriptual scholars" (p. 14).
"As strange as it may sound to biblical scholars in academia, the fundamental issue deciding the caliber of Spinoza's biblical hermeneutics (and hence what he has bequeathed to his progency as one of the fathers of of modern biblical hermeneutics) is the accuracy and adequacy of Spinoza's account of reason and nature" (p. 392).
