Summary: "Unlike many other books, Dark Passages of the Bible does not limit itself merely to describing and applying abstract theories or doctrines of inspiration or inerrancy to "difficult passages" in Scripture. Rather, it reconciles actual biblical passages or themes that seem to contradict or be incompatible with doctrines of biblical inspiration and inerrancy. A significant contribution to explaining Pope Benedict XVI's interpretive approach, which reconciles the best of pre-critical and post-critical exegesis."-William S. Kurz, SJ, professor of theology, Marquette University. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_0813221560
Über diesen Titel:
Following the lead of Pope Benedict XVI, in Dark Passages of the Bible Matthew Ramage weds the historical-critical approach with a theological reading of Scripture based in the patristic-medieval tradition. Whereas these two approaches are often viewed as mutually exclusive or even contradictory, Ramage insists that the two are mutually enriching and necessary for doing justice to the Bible?s most challenging texts.
Ramage applies Benedict XVI's hermeneutical principles to three of the most theologically problematic areas of the Bible: its treatment of God?s nature, the nature of good and evil, and the afterlife. Teasing out key hermeneutical principles from the work of Thomas Aquinas, Ramage analyzes each of these themes with an eye to reconciling texts whose presence would seem to violate the doctrines of biblical inspiration and inerrancy. At the same time, Ramage directly addresses the problems of concrete biblical texts in light of both patristic and modern exegetical methods.
PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
"Ramage uses three difficult biblical motifs as proving grounds for this method: the nature of God, the nature of good and evil, and the afterlife. Exegetes and theologians will appreciate the author's wrestling with these issues in a considered way that tries to be true to both scientific methodology and the demands of a community of faith." - The Bible Today
If a sacred text can be literally incorrect about topics on which it claims to speak authoritatively, how can its words be trustworthy? Dark Passages sets out to raise the reader's awareness of how to use the Bible in ways that are not so cut and dried. The Method C reader appreciates myth or authorial overreach where they exist, and always reads the biblical word theologically, as an encounter with the divine Word. Method C goes beyond a simple, formulaic answer to problematic Bible passages." -First Things
