Item Description...
Taking full account of more recent approaches and historical-critical methods, the author proposes a rethinking of the way students and scholars should approach the New Testament. A timely prophetic plea for an 'evangelical catholic reading of the text in our own time'

Publishers Description
At a time of deep disagreements about the nature and purpose of academic biblical studies, Markus Bockmuehl advocates the recovery of a plural but common conversation on the subject of what the New Testament is about.
"Seeing the Word" begins with an assessment of current New Testament studies, identifying both persistent challenges and some promising proposals. Subsequent chapters explore two such proposals. First, ground for common conversation lies in taking seriously the readers and readings the text implies. Second, Bockmuehl explores the text's early effective history by a study of apostolic memory in the early church.
All serious students of the Bible and theology will find much of interest, and much to discuss, in this first volume in the Studies in Theological Interpretation series.

Excellent Proposals for NT Studies Future  Mar 30, 2009
This is a limited and technical group of people who might be interested in the topic: the state and future of NT Studies. Being part of the academia, it is those who engage themselves in research,publication and debate about NT Studies, or those like this reviewer who hang around with them, are taught by them, and read their output and views.

Bockmuehl is a member of this group, and so writes with passion and knowledge about the topic. He begins by an assessment of the state of the matter, and he assesses that it is turning at this beginning of a new century away from its historical-critical leanings. With this opening, he asserts some new directions that might be fruitful for the discipline. First he proposes that the NT text was meant with an implied reader in mind, one who is engaged in its ecclesial usage, not just an academic/scholarly topic. It further sees NT study as returning to its historical-grammatical foundations, rather than microscopic, critical investiagation.

Truly insightful was his quotation from Hoskyns: "You look down your critical microscope at the NT text with a view to describing the religious life of the first-century Christians, and you find that God is looking back at you through the microscope and declaring you to be a sinner."

In recalled, collective memory that flows from the apostolic eyewitnesses and their students, he sees the NT text as good, reliable history to be trusted. Primarily does he see this as centered on "Jesus the Jew as Messiah and Lord God of Israel,... dead, descendant of David."

With all this, he wants the discipline to focus on the implied readership and reading of "that incarnate Jewish God-child at the heart". He is truly on to something when he solicits "a quantum leap beyond the tired cliches of the 'unity and diversity' problme as it was handled in the past."

Well done, right on, and if implemented by those engaged in this discipline, will provide fruit for the faithful catholic church.
