How can one read the Bible both critically and religiously? To answer that question, The Bible and the Believer enlists one Jewish, one Catholic, and one Protestant biblical scholar who explain and illustrate how to read the Hebrew Bible/Tanakh/Old Testament critically and religiously in light of their own religious traditions. The problem they deal with not only haunts biblical scholarship today but also disturbs students and others exposed to biblical criticism for the first time in university courses or through reading. Failure to deal with the problem often results in rejection of either the critical approach or the religious approach (or both). Brettler, Enns, and Harrington demonstrate how to read the Bible critically through the lens of tradition, guiding readers through the history of interpretation as well as the history of biblical exegesis within each faith.
