Pretensions Of Objectivity: Toward A Criticism Of Biblical Criticism, Jeffrey Morrow Dec 2018

Pretensions Of Objectivity: Toward A Criticism Of Biblical Criticism, Jeffrey Morrow

Jeffrey L. Morrow, Ph.D.

Modern historical biblical criticism, while having many strengths, often operates under the pretensions of objectivity, as if such scholarship were neutral and disinterested. Examining the history and roots of modern biblical scholarship shows that such objectivity is elusive, and was never intended by the method’s earliest practitioners. Building upon his earlier work in Three Skeptics and the Bible and Theology, Politics, and Exegesis, Morrow continues this historical investigation into the political and philosophical roots of modern biblical criticism in Pretensions of Objectivity, in the hope of developing a criticism of biblical criticism and of making space for theological exegesis.


Alfred Loisy And Modern Biblical Studies, Jeffrey Morrow Dec 2018

Alfred Loisy And Modern Biblical Studies, Jeffrey Morrow

Jeffrey L. Morrow, Ph.D.

The French Catholic priest and biblical scholar Alfred Loisy (1857-1940) was at the heart of the Roman Catholic Modernist crisis in the early part of the twentieth century. He saw much of his work as an attempt to bring John Henry Newman's notion of development of doctrine into the realm of Catholic biblical studies, and thereby transform Catholic theology. This volume situates Loisy's better known works on the New Testament and theology in the context of his lesser known work in Assyriology and Old Testament studies. His early training in Assyriology taught Loisy a comparative historical approach to ...

Theology, Politics, And Exegesis: Essays On The History Of Modern Biblical Criticism, Jeffrey Morrow Dec 2016

Theology, Politics, And Exegesis: Essays On The History Of Modern Biblical Criticism, Jeffrey Morrow

Jeffrey L. Morrow, Ph.D.

Modern biblical scholars often view the methods they employ as objective and neutral, tracing the history of modern biblical scholarship to the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This volume examines some earlier, lesser known roots of modern biblical scholarship. The book explores biblical scholarship from the fourteenth through the seventeenth centuries and then discusses its new place in the Enlightenment of the eighteenth century where such scholarship would flourish. Far from merely an objective and neutral method, such scholarship was never without philosophical, theological, and political underpinnings. The volume concludes with a look at the separation of biblical studies from theology ...


Seeking The Lord Of Middle Earth: Theological Essays On J.R.R. Tolkien, Jeffrey Morrow Dec 2016

Seeking The Lord Of Middle Earth: Theological Essays On J.R.R. Tolkien, Jeffrey Morrow

Jeffrey L. Morrow, Ph.D.

J. R. R. Tolkien, the beloved author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, brings to his work a great treasure--his Christian faith. Tolkien's literary works are so popular in part because, in some sense, they pertain to the real world. This present volume is an attempt to understand better the deep Christian influences on his work but also to explore the relevance of Tolkien's work for theology today. After examining Tolkien's fiction in order better to appreciate Christian influences, this volume takes a closer look at Tolkien's theology of fantasy, his response to ...
