Historical Criticism and Theological Interpretation of Scripture
Publisher Wipf & Stock
In this essay Peter Stuhlmacher immerses himself and the reader in the crucial issue of the relation between theological understanding and the historical investigation of the Scriptures. What are the limits of the historical-critical method as it has developed? The author's position--presented for the first time in English--allows the claims of the texts to be heard even as critical evaluation continues. This statement takes on extreme importance at a time when so many biblical students and scholars are attempting to discern the future of critical scholarship.
