"Many people approach biblical studies as they would mathematics. That is, they believe that if you follow the method properly, only one 'right'answer is possible...The process of Biblical interpretation is not that easy, and it takes an astute reader to cross these waters without drowning." Michael Brown wants to help students understand the mind-set and presuppositons behind the academic discipline of biblical studies. He uses his experience as both a student and a teacher to offer wise advice about what to expect if you want to be an astute reader of the Bible. Brown provides basic information about the Bible and biblical criticism. He defines the jargon and presents the variety of perspectives students will encounter in the classroom. He also explains how to prepare for doing biblical studies, clarifies the difference between biblical studies and Bible study, gives a brief history of scholarship, and furnishes an overview of the methods of biblical interpretation.
This introduction to biblical studies aims to help the reader deal with the tensions between faith and understanding that can arise at the start of an academic course of study. It guides the reader through the critical methods and approaches to biblical research with the aid of 28 rules of thumb for learning and practising biblical studies: rules for reading and interpreting biblical texts; rules for understanding biblical scholarship; and rules for surviving biblical scholarship.
