The Bible and the believer : how to read the Bible critically and religiously by Marc Zvi Brettler ( Book )
9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Can the Bible be approached both as sacred scripture and as a historical and literary text? For many people, it must be one or the other. How can we read the Bible both ways? This work brings together three biblical scholars, one Jewish, one Catholic, and one Protestant, to illustrate how to read the Hebrew Bible/ Old Testament critically and religiously. Here the authors tackle a dilemma that not only haunts biblical scholarship today, but also disturbs students and others exposed to biblical criticism for the first time, either in university courses or through their own reading. Failure to resolve these conflicting interpretive strategies often results in rejection of either the critical approach or the religious approach, or both. But the authors demonstrate how biblical criticism, the process of establishing the original contextual meaning of biblical texts with the tools of literary and historical analysis, need not undermine religious interpretations of the Bible, but can in fact enhance them. They show how awareness of new archeological evidence, cultural context, literary form, and other tools of historical criticism can provide the necessary preparation for a sound religious reading. And they argue that the challenges such study raises for religious belief should be brought into conversation with religious tradition rather than deemed grounds for dismissing either that tradition or biblical criticism. Guiding readers through the history of biblical exegesis within the Jewish, Catholic, and Protestant faith traditions, this book bridges an age-old gap between critical and religious approaches to the Old Testament

First Corinthians by Raymond F Collins ( Book )
4 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of the most exciting of Paul's letters, First Corinthians offers a vantage point from which modern readers can reflect on the diversity in Christian churches today. In First Corinthians, Raymond Collins explores that vantage point as well as the challenge Paul posed to the people of his time - and continues to pose in ours - to allow the gospel message to engage them in their daily lives."--P. [4] of cover

6 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Colossians and Ephesians by Margaret Y MacDonald ( Book )
4 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this commentary Margaret Y. MacDonald deals with the classic problems of interpretation of Colossians and Ephesians, including authorship, the identity of the "false teachers" in Colossians, and the purpose of Ephesians. In making use of insights from the social sciences, she also draws attention to frequently neglected features of these fascinating documents. Her methodological perspective leads her to illustrate how the texts reflect ancient cultural values and are influenced by particular aspects of community life. There is a sustained discussion of the struggles of New Testament communities to survive and to maintain a distinct identity in first-century society. The commentary includes detailed analysis of the relationship between Colossians and Ephesians and highlights their distinct perspectives."--Jacket

1, 2, and 3 John by John Painter ( Book )
8 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Johannine Epistles are today read as an important part of the Johannine literature. Yet the meaning of the text is often unclear. Part of the problem arises because, although 1 John is called an Epistle, it lacks the formal marks of an Epistle. In 1, 2, and 3 John, John Painter illuminates the relationship 1, 2, and 3 John have to each other and to the Gospel
James by P. J Hartin ( Book )
5 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The letter of James is one of the most neglected writings of the New Testament. One of the strongest and most influential voices against James has been that of Martin Luther who saw James as a challenge to Paul's teaching on the relationship between faith and works. Even within the Roman Catholic Church, James has suffered great neglect as is evidenced through the scant usage of this writing within her liturgy." "Hartin's study begins with a detailed examination of the letter's literary background and its relationships within the context of the Jewish, Hellenistic, and emerging Christian worlds. From this examination James emerges clearly as a writing at home within the world of Jewish-Christianity. Those complex issues of genre, authorship, and readership are examined, and Hartin argues convincingly that James is an early writing, stemming from the authority of James, the brother of the Lord, who writes to those Jewish-Christians in the dispersion of northern Syria."--Jacket
