Utilizing primarily the methodological resources of Bernard Lonergan and traditional Christian doctrines of Scripture recovered by Henri de Lubac, it draws upon achievements in historical critical study of Scripture, studies of the material history of Christian Scripture, reflection on philosophical hermeneutics and philosophical and theological anthropology, and other resources to articulate a unified but open horizon for understanding Christian Scripture today. Following an overview of the contemporary situation of Christian Scripture, Joseph Gordon identifies intellectual precedents for the work in the writings of Irenaeus, Origen, and Augustine, who all locate Scripture in the economic work of the God to whom it bears witness by interpreting it through the Rule of Faith. Subsequent chapters draw on Scripture itself; classical sources such as Irenaeus, Origen, Augustine, and Aquinas; the fruit of recent studies on the history of Scripture; and the work of recent scholars and theologians to provide a contemporary Christian articulation of the divine and human locations of Christian Scripture and the material history and intelligibility and purpose of Scripture in those locations. The resulting constructive position can serve as a heuristic for affirming the achievements of traditional, historical-critical, and contextual readings of Scripture and provides a basis for addressing issues relatively underemphasized by those respective approaches.

    I’m still thinking this one through. It’s a surprisingly dense book for topic that *feels* like it could have been shorter. But then again, it’s very Lonerganian, which is both frustrating and challenging in great ways. Let the reader understand.

    An intriguing account of Scripture from a sophisticated Catholic perspective. The main draw back is its assumption that a more evangelical Protestant view (i.e., inerrancy) is inherently wrong without much direct engagement with the view.

    Gordon offers an excellent theological structure for situating Biblical studies within Christian faith. Really appreciated his willingness to engage with the realities of historical criticism, and his ideas for moving forward. I'll reference this for a long time.
