The past 100 years have seen profound changes in New Testament study. This book follows its development from the late 19th century through the challenges of the 20th. Central to its argument is Rudolf Bultmann's attempt to reconcile critical, historical and theological studies, and its ultimate failure. Reviewing recent developments, Riches concludes by asking if the time has not come for a similar attempt to integrate modern approaches.
