People who come to the study of the Bible at the beginning of the twenty-first century may feel that they have walked into a hall of mirrors. Never before has biblical scholarship reflected such a range of possible ways of interpreting the Bible. Are we to take Scriptures as the literal truth, or as human stories coming from a particular historical context? As imaginative literature that has only a metaphoric or spiritual meaning, or as liberation texts for women, black people, the poor?
Introduction to Biblical Studies provides a clear and helpful approach to the study of the Scriptures, spelling out the value of the differing approaches on offer, while helping the student towards an understanding of their essential unity. Tried and tested among Steve Moyise's own (highly critical) theological students, this book would also be an invaluable resource for a lay reader's course, for somebody running a church biblical studies group, or for anyone-Christian or otherwise- who has ever wondered what on earth is going on in the field of biblical studies today.
