A former liberal scholar puts modern biblical criticism on trial—detailing how biblical critics often hold to biases rather than fact. First English edition.

From the Back Cover:

In the academic community, the confirmed results of scientific investigation are considered the touchstone of intellectual inquiry. Indeed, society at large has come to respect all claims offered under the rubric of “science.” As a “scientific theology,” the historical-critical method has come to dominate the field of biblical criticism in Germany and is championed in seminaries and universities around the world.

In this first English language edition, author Eta Linnemann challenges the root assumption of this theology, its claim to be “scientific.” To the contrary, she finds that “what goes unnoticed is that many of these ‘results’ are nothing more than unproven hypotheses that are trumpeted to be facts. . . .” (from the Preface).

The book examines and refutes a variety of claims and questions including:

  • Was there a source or “Q” document from which the Synoptic Gospels were copied?
  • Did Paul actually write all the Epistles attributed to him?
  • How much credibility should Christian give to “proofs” that numerous New Testament books were written long after the apostles died?
  • Why is there so much difference in New Testament vocabulary and grammatical structure?

Eta Linnemann taught New Testament at Philipps University, Marburg, West Germany until her personal spiritual crisis and conversion. Later she became a missionary teacher of native pastors at a Bible institute in Batu, Indonesia. She lectures on historical-critical theology throughout Europe and North America.

About the Author:

He has edited, authored, coauthored, or translated several books, including three by Eta Linnemann and a biography of Adolf Schlatter.
