       The Bible and the Constitution have the status of the 'Great Code' and each of these texts is controversial in that their interpretation is used to judge situations that their authors could not have known or foreseen on their own.

Pelikan compares how the Bible and the Constitution have approached interpretation as well as searches for answers to what makes something 'constitutional' or 'biblical'. And in spite of obvious differences, both the Bible and the Constitution require close word-by-word exegesis, an awareness of opinions that have gone before, and a willingness to ask new questions of old codes.

Jaroslav Pelikan was Sterling Professor of History Emeritus at Yale University. He served as the first John W. Kluge Scholar at the Library of Congress. A world authority on the Christian tradition, he was a highly sought lecturer, the author of nearly forty books, and the editor of scores of others. Pelikan was Co-Winner of the 2004 John W. Kluge Prize for Lifetime Achievement in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
