 Biblical Criticism

Show Summary Details


Examples of severe contrast between historical criticism and ideological interpretation are discussed. Many other aspects, such as form criticism or redaction criticism, are added. Objectivity, once seen as a value, is now disdained as a power‐based ideology. Broadly speaking, scholarship, or some currents within it, has entered a ‘post‐modern’ phase.

Keywords: Brueggemann; Childs; enlightenment; feminism; objectivity; rhetoric
