On Biblical Scholarship and Bias.

Cover Three Skeptics and the BibleThe online magazine, The Bible and Interpretation, has recently published an article I wrote entitled, “On Biblical Scholarship and Bias.” The article has stirred up some controversy, even  eliciting a published response by Thomas L. Thompson, the famous biblical “minimalist” from the University of Copenhagen. The Bible and Interpretation intends to present articles written by biblical scholars that are more widely accessible to a broader audience outside the realm of specialist scholars. My article uses Joseph Ratzinger’s (Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI) 1988 Erasmus Lecture on “Biblical Interpretation in Crisis” as the starting point for the discussion. If you are interested in this debate, check out my Three Skeptics and the Bible.
