This book defines interpretation and examines the special issues that surround biblical interpretation. The authors analyze the development of traditional literary and historical criticism and more recent social, scientific, and literary approaches, focusing on the key figures from Reimarus to Gerd Theissen, and exposing the underlying theological issues. They reveal a pattern in the relationship between religious interests in the texts and the rational methods used to interpret them, providing guidance for a theologically sensitive use of the Bible today. The book includes an annotated index with detailed information on over two hundred fifty biblical scholars and other interpreters."The great strength of this work is that it deals with the great issues of interpretation in terms of the historical debate over scripture and criticism. It is indispensable for upper level reading."--Donald G. Schley, University of Colorado"An exceptional book. It combines a critical history of modern Western biblical scholarship with a sensitive analysis of the issues facing contemporary biblical theologians. ... There is no recent work in English that does either, or both, as well. ... Should be read by all who have serious academic, professional, and/or personal interest in responsible contemporary appropriation of the biblical text."--Choice"Combines engaging and illuminating historical discussion of the development of critical biblical studies... with a gnerally penetrating theoretical examination of the methods employed. ... Morgan and Barton shed a much-need light on the interaction of general intellectual history and the particular disciplines of biblical studies and biblical theology."--The Journal of Religion"The best and most current map of biblical study available today."--America"A very wide-ranging book and virtually any reader will find something of interest in it."--Critical Review
