(PUBEerdmans)Has biblical scholarship been loosed from its moorings in the community of faith, then set adrift in the secular academy? In a lively exchange, Johnson and Kurz discuss the implications of the contemporary American scene and what can be done to encourage critical inquiry within living traditions. 272 pages, softcover.
This volume considers the current state of research, offering a critique of current approaches to Catholic Biblical scholarship from a Catholic viewpoint. The authors (they're both Catholic theologians: Johnson teaches at Emory U., Kurz at Marquette U.) have contributed five chapters each on their approaches to Biblical interpretation, chapters in which they respond to each other's work, and a co-written conclusion offering their views on the importance of maintaining a Catholic identity in Biblical scholarship.
