Seeing the Word (Studies in Theological Interpretation)
Refocusing New Testament Study
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.
Shrimp! Worms! Embryonic Sharks! His own buttocks!Phileas McNeil has eaten it all and more; practically one of everything – but there is one meal that will be his match. Phileas’ semi-farcical journey through exotic alien cuisine brings him face to face with inevitable doom, endings, beginnings and the reason why anything is worth eating…
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.
