The Reading List – Mar 25 – 31

This week: Gerald Bray’s Biblical Interpretation: Past and Present. In my quest to understand the historical development of biblical theologies, I turned to this rather comprehensive overview of how the Bible has been interpreted over the ages. It’s broad, covering all of Christian history up to the 90′s (published in 1996). It gives enough information (including bibliographies for each section) so that you can hunt down for more depth later, whilst giving probably enough to give you an idea of what’s going on. It’s easy to read, but it really is only an overview intended to allow one to find the entry points for further research. It’s getting a little dated, and could probably do with an update.
