This third installment examines the period after the Reformation until the dawn of the twentieth century.

"If there has been a single critical period in biblical interpretation during which all paradigms and traditions were challenged and all conclusions shifted, it was surely the Enlightenment and its aftermath. In this history of biblical interpretation from the Enlightenment through the nineteenth century, Alan Hauser and Duane Watson, two veterans in biblical scholarship, have judiciously selected expert scholars to provide a volume that will become the standard text on the rise and enduring power of historical criticismits methods, its scholars, its search for the historical Jesus, its revision of long-held assumptions about biblical authorshipall of which shook the Christian tradition at its foundations. Modern biblical scholarship, the reader will see, is but a development of the Enlightenment's fundamental conclusions."

"The great value of this project lies in the combination of focused essays on key figures and issues, with an overarching introduction to the whole period by the editors. In this third volume, such a format furnishes a well-constructed review of the highly complex but crucial set of intellectual and cultural changes that defined not just modern biblical scholarship but modernity itself, while the essays illustrate the necessity of understanding key figures and themes in their own distinctiveness and integrity. This work will serve both the scholar and the student very well indeed."
