Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Some books give themselves new answers to old questions. Here is the book that changes the questions themselves. We are therefore extremely fortunate to have Fowl's Engaging Scripture, for this is a book that challenges the presumptions that created the problem of the New Testament and its relationship to theology. Fowl's reading of Ephesians on stealing is worth the price of the book in itself. One cannot help but think this book will stand out as the mark of a new beginning." Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe, Professor of Theological Ethics, Duke University, North Carolina

"The volume is a useful addition to the ongoing debate concerning how best to interpret Scripture." Journal for the Study of the Old Testament
