Christology and Scripture Interdisciplinary Perspectives by Andrew Lincoln

In Christology and Scripture leading biblical scholars and theologians explore the relation of theological thought to the reading of Scripture. The focus is on three inter-related issues. The first is how theologians appropriately read Scripture around Christ, and what contribution, if any, historical-criticism makes to this endeavour. The second is that of the person and work of Christ in relation to Scripture. In interaction with specific texts, contributors engage with the related questions of who Christ is and how his benefits are communicated. This leads on to the final issue of responsiveness to our current context of reading, and contributors reflect on how Christological models relate to contemporary cultural and political concerns.

Mention --New Testament Abstracts, Vol. 53 No. 1, 2009 Mention New Testament Abstracts, Vol. 53 No. 1, 2009 These eleven essays from a 2005 interdisciplinary symposium on Christology from the University of Gloucestershire provide an overview of important points of controversy in NT scholarship...contain[ing] insights that can enlighten expert and amateur alike. Religious Studies Review, September 2009 Mention -Chronicle of Higher Education, May 18, 2007--Sanford Lakoff 'There are some important and useful chapters in the book and for this reason its well worth a read. How we interpret and read scripture remain vital questions for the church and as Webster, and also Nimmo's reading of Barth, show a theological account of scripture and hermeneutics is necessary.
Andy Goodliff

--Sanford Lakoff This is a well above-average group of conference papers...One can tell from the general amount of careful footnoting as well as the generous length of the essays that this has been carefully coordinated and executed. Of the essays treating historical theology, those by Sara Parvis...and by Steve Holmes are models of clarity. -Mark Elliott, Review of Biblical Literature, October 2008 With the essays of Morgan and Lincoln we have a contrast of two styles, even attitudes. One is trying to be critical in the sense of asking questions about what were the probably factors at work in the expression of a witness that came to be known as the New Testament. Lincoln seems more interested to run the autopsy just to make sure the patient is dead. In neither (nor in any of the essays here) is there much consideration of the Old Testament. But perhaps that is for another outing of this team who have given us a stimulating treat from their labors. -Mark Elliott, Review of Biblical Literature, October 2008 'This rich volume of essays coheres nicely around the title. For NT specialists, the excellent essays by the theologians Webster, Holmes and Nimmo will challenge. Fowl's NT article offers a good alternative reading. For those interested in interdisciplinary engagement, this collection will be especially welcome.' - Kent E. Brower, JSNT Booklist, vol. 31.5, 2009.--Sanford Lakoff
