Evangelical Faith and the Challenge of Historical Criticism. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: This timely resource introduces evangelicals to a way of understanding and using historical-critical scholarship that doesn't compromise Christian orthodoxy.
From the Back Cover:
"This carefully argued book urges evangelical Christians to reexamine the potential of historical-critical biblical criticism. The authors seek not universal acceptance of what they propose so much as fresh evangelical engagement with questions involving the methods of biblical criticism--and therefore with Scripture itself. In this aim they succeed admirably."
--Mark A. Noll, University of Notre Dame
"Hays and Ansberry provide evangelical students with something they rarely see: a discussion of the major critical issues in biblical studies combined with a respectful, discerning appreciation for the biblical text as scripture. Too often students must choose between academic rigor and personal belief. A well-written volume treating these issues is a rare gift to a new generation of students now looking at many of these issues for the very first time."
--Gary M. Burge, Wheaton College
"A learned and pastoral collection of essays calling for evangelicals to engage with and integrate into their faith the genuine insights of historical criticism. The contributors exhibit the courage to give both faith and historical criticism the respect they deserve. This volume is a welcome addition to the growing number of evangelical voices calling for a reassessment of an evangelical doctrine of Scripture, not as an attack but for the end goal of supporting and enriching the evangelical movement."
--Peter Enns, Eastern University
"Chris Hays and Chris Ansberry engage in the courageous task of showing how evangelical scholars can soberly address the hot-potato issues in biblical scholarship, even appropriate many critical insights, without selling out on what evangelicals traditionally believe. This is the type of discussion on faith and criticism that evangelical scholarship has needed for years."
--Michael Bird, Ridley Melbourne College of Mission and Ministry, Australia
"A project like this is long overdue. Our students need to read essays and books that will not only orient them to the goals and methods of critical biblical scholarship but also provide them with a sieve with which to sift what they are reading. While a book of this sort could deal with two dozen or more critical subjects, the editors have chosen eight that scream the most loudly for attention. The contributors handle controversial notions with integrity, seriousness, respect, and a commitment to fairness."
--Daniel I. Block, Wheaton College
