Black, David Alan, and David S. Dockery, eds. Interpreting the New Testament: Essays on Methods and Issues
Interpreting the New Testament
One of the world’s best-known and most influential bodies of literature, the New Testament is also one of the least understood. If this is partly due to sloth on the part of the modern reader (and who has never been guilty of laziness when it comes to the study of the Bible?), it is also due in no small part to the proliferation of modern approaches to New Testament interpretation in the late twentieth century. Bewildered by this plethora of methodologies, the modern reader may well hesitate to go beyond a cursory reading (and understanding) of the New Testament writings. Even if one has the desire to teach or preach from the New Testament with authority and credibility, who has the time or courage to study it in depth and to proclaim it without fear or favor?
The purpose of Interpreting the New Testament is to enhance New Testament interpretation, teaching, and preaching by providing a useful means of learning what the New Testament is all about and—whenever possible—the historical reasons why it speaks the way it does. It endeavors not only to acquaint readers with the scope and trends of modern New Testament scholarship but also to enable them to have a clearer and more enjoyable experience when reading and applying these twenty-seven inspired books.
