Biblical Hermeneutics and Criticism
Modernity and postmodernity have posed various challenges to
the Christian church, and one of these has been the emergence of new critical
methods and perspectives with respect to Bible-reading. This course aims to
examine the assumptions, history, and variety of these methods and perspectives;
to ask intelligent questions about their coherence and value; to clarify how
far their employment is important to, and how far detrimental to a Christian
hermeneutic; and to offer a way ahead that is both intellectually sustainable
and consistent with the faith of the church in respect of its Scriptures.
