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.
