Item description for Pedagogy of the Bible: An Analysis and Proposal by Dale B. Martin...

Overview
For generations, most seminary teaching of the Bible has focused on the historical-critical method. While this method has been the assumption in almost every seminary curriculum, the actual effects of this approach to Scripture have hardly been examined. From studying the biblical studies courses at ten different seminaries and divinity schools, Dale Martin learned what faculties were doing and what students were hearing. This book presents his discoveries, offering the best-ever inside look into the teaching of the Bible for ministry. Going beyond mere description, Martin argues for a new emphasis on interpreting Scripture within the context of church history and theology. Such a reading would be more theological, more integrated into the whole theological curriculum, and more theoretical (as it would focus on whats at stake in interpretation); however, Martin surprisingly argues, it would be more practical at the same time.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pedagogy of the Bible: An Analysis and Proposal?

a must reading for theological education  May 14, 2009
Dale Martin writes passionately about theological education and the use of the Bible in classroom. This book is a welcome addition to my bookshelf and to my own research as well. Martin proposes that teaching of the Bible come back to premodern interpretation in which readers take the central stage. The Bible (texts) doesn't mean something clear to everybody. But it is the reader who decides the final meaning of the text. This does not mean that any meaning goes. Even historians choose a certain meaning in their interpretation. So if somebody says "the Bible says ..." it shouldn't be understood that the Bible says the only one thing. Therefore, all readings are subject to investigation and criticism. Actually, it is an irony that this important part of "reader" has not been given much attention. My hope is that all levels of readers faithfully and critically engage the Bible in their diversity of life contexts. In this way I believe that lively meaning of the text might be ever-coming back for us today. In fact, I share with Martin the same passion for theological education: Christ's Body in Corinth: The Politics of a Metaphor (Paul in Critical Contexts).
