Review:

"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

From the Publisher:

Blackwell Publishers
This original essay proposes that Christians must read scripture theologically, redressing the recent domination of professional scholarship in this area by historical criticism. Drawing on the best interpretative traditions of the past, it develops a new approach to the theological interpretation of scripture. This interpretative framework will enable Christians, and particularly Christian theologians, to interpret scripture in a way that helps them to live and worship faithfully. Theological and theoretical questions are illustrated by particular Christian convictions, practices and concerns in the US and Britain, and engaging scriptural passages. ENGAGING SCRIPTURE looks toward bridging the chasm that arose between biblical studies and theological study following the rise of modernity. It can be used with the complementary collection of classic and contemporary readings, 'Fowl: The Theological Interpretation of Scripture (1996)'.
