Item description for The Old Testament between Theology and History: A Critical Survey by Niels Peter Lemche...

Overview
From its inception at the time of the Enlightenment until the mid-twentieth century, the historical-critical method constituted the dominant paradigm in Old Testament studies. In this magisterial overview, Niels Peter Lemche surveys the development of the historical-critical method and the way it changed the scholarly perception of the Old Testament. In part 1 he describes the rise and influence of historical-critical approaches, while in part 2 he traces their decline and fall. Then, in part 3, he discusses the identity of the authors of the Old Testament, based on the content of the literature they wrote, demonstrating that the collapse of history does not preclude critical study. Part 4 investigates the theological consequences of this collapse and surveys Old Testament and biblical theology in its various manifestations in the twentieth century. An appendix includes a history of Palestine from the Stone Age to modern times, constructed without recourse to the Old Testament.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Old Testament between Theology and History: A Critical Survey?

Miminalism  Feb 4, 2009
If interested in exploring the mind-set of way-out theoretic rationalists who form an avant-gard movement away from the time-honored faith, this is a representative source. The author's declaration that "God is and will remain an assertion" and not present in history (page 341) reveals his own assertive disposition. A reader unprepared for the challenges of 21st century "knowledge falsely so-called" (I Timothy 6:20) should access sources responding to the assertions of modern minimalists exemplified in this book.
