Text, Church and World

Francis Watson

$120.00

Paperback
Contends that new literary, canonical and feminist approaches make it possible to rethink the relationship of biblical studies to Christian theology.

- Publisher Should biblical studies continue to exclude theological concerns from its agenda? What is the real significance of the new literary, canonical, and feminist approaches that have established themselves as alternatives to the conventional historical-critical methodologies? Francis Watson contends that these new approaches allow a rethinking of the relationship of biblical studies to Christian theology. If interpretation is partly determined by the perspective of the interpreter, historical questions about the text's origins are less significant than its role in furthering the process of theological and hermeneutical thought. Dr. Watson therefore engages critically with the work of significant theorists and offers examples of a biblical interpretation that give precedence to theological concerns, drawing on texts from both Old and New Testaments.
