Acerca de


In pursuit of the oneness of scripture's scope, Brevard Childs (1923-2007) ranged across the Christian Bible, writing Introductions to the Old and New Testaments before attempting a landmark Biblical Theology of the same. For him the canon is a christological rule of faith, though perceiving the family resemblance in its historic formation and impress in the life of the church as well as, mysteriously, the synagogue, is always a great struggle. Yet Childs' argument for final form exegesis rose out of his form-critical training: Hermann Gunkel is a crucial antecedent. Childs' work has been much discussed, and in the wake of James Barr's criticism much misunderstood. Driver gives its total profile for the first time, from its background and controversy to its later development, analyzing all published titles and filling out this record with a number of previously unseen letters and papers.

From the Back Cover:

"[Brevard Childs] staked out a position and vocation for biblical theology that is sure to reshape our common work and that will require intense engagement by any who dare take up the risk."
--Walter Brueggemann, Theology Today

"Childs inspired a generation of pastors and professors to begin reclaiming the Bible for the church."
--Stephen B. Chapman, Christian Century

Brevard Childs, one of the monumental figures in biblical interpretation in the last half-century, is a founding presence in the current resurgence in theological interpretation of Scripture. He combined critique of biblical scholarship with a constructive proposal related to the canon. Because his work is influential, complex, and contested, it needs and merits clarification. In this full-scale explication of Childs' thought, Daniel Driver takes account of the complete corpus of Childs' work, providing a thorough introduction to the context, content, and reception of his canonical approach.

"The search for a fresh paradigm for a biblical theology resumed with new seriousness in the 1950s, and few scholars contributed more frequently and extensively to this debate than Brevard Childs. . . . This detailed critique by Driver explores the historical course of the debate, provides a comprehensive bibliography of the most relevant sources, including important reviews, and traces as closely as possible the points that have aroused sharpest contention. The result is a book that is indispensable in showing why, since World War II, historical and theological approaches to the Bible have found it difficult to establish a common ground. . . . It will certainly remain an essential work of reference for a while to come."
--R. E. Clements, Journal for the Study of the Old Testament

"Driver is successful in providing the reader with the necessary background for Childs' theological training, the controversy held in various academic circles throughout America and Europe, and later developments in contemporary scholarship stemming from Childs' contribution to the field of Old Testament studies. . . . This study is by all means a milestone in the contemporary discussion of Childs and his contribution to the study of Scripture."
--Igal German, Theological Book Review
