Can Vital Scholarship and Religion Co-exist?

The reply is sure, and I’ve bought the e-book to show it.

Effectively, truly, I don’t have it but, and neither do you. The e-book isn’t popping out till October (Oxford College Press). However at the least I’ve the quilt. I even have the PDF web page proofs, however I received’t allow you to individuals get your mitts on that fairly but.

This e-book originated in a symposium sponsored by the Jewish Research Program on the College of Pennsylvania on October 25, 2010. The subject was “The Problem of Studying the Bible Right this moment: Can the Bible Be Learn Each Critically and Religiously? Jewish, Catholic, and Protestant Views.”  Professors Jeffrey Tigay and Beth Wenger invited Marc Brettler (Brandeis College), Dan Harrington (Boston School), and your’s really to share how we take a look at this challenge from the views of our religion traditions.

(I had a troublesome task. YOU attempt explaining to a non-Protestant viewers what “Protestants” take into consideration something, not to mention the BIble and criticism.)

The viewers, a number of hundred college students and group members, requested probing questions, which satisfied us that our matter was worthy of publication. Over dinner we determined to just do that.

I’ll weblog extra concerning the e-book within the fall, however right here is the desk of contents.
