Product Description

Leading theologians - Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox - speak out on the crisis in the role of bibical authority and the interpretation of the Bible in the church. From various perspectives the contributors examine the gap between the academic, historical, and critical approach to the study of the Bible and the church's liturgical and dogmatic transmission of bibical faith. The authors contend that while historical criticism is indispensible to the understanding of Scripture, it is itself inadequate when separated from faith if used to accommodate Christ to the ideological demands of contemporary secular society.

Publisher's Description

Leading theologians speak out on the crisis in the role of biblical authority and the interpretation of the Bible in the church.

'The various chapters in this excellent book, summarised as to leading themes by editors in the introduciton, orginated as conference papers which addressed the question: can the Bible still speak to the Church in an age of critical historical awareness? It is a book which will repay careful reading by all those concerned to maintain or restore an intergral connection between Bible and Church while retaining also a personal integrity of intellect and spirit. There are eight essays in all, each addressing the central question in its own unique manner.'
Colm O Baoill, University of Aberdeen, Scottish Journal of Theology
