Here is a quote from a really good review of the newly issued Green Bible:
Augustine said in 397 A.D. that the “most expert investigator of the divine scriptures” will both have read all the Scriptures and also have “a good knowledge” of them. This will protect the interpreter so that others “will then be unable to take possession of his unprotected mind and prejudice him in any way against sound interpretations or delude him by their dangerous falsehoods and fantasies.”3 Heresies thrive on emphasizing only a part of Scripture (e.g., saying Jesus was God, but not man), but a knowledge of the whole militates against heresies.
