"Words with Power" for Social Transformation: An Anatomy of Biblical Criticism for Theological Education
Walker-Jones, Arthur
Teaching Theology & Religion, v11 n2 p75-81 Apr 2008
The proliferation of methods of literary criticism in biblical studies raises the question of how to introduce students to the field. This article argues that the work of Northrop Frye is useful for teaching the existential meaning and social impact of the Bible. The first section introduces relevant aspects of Frye's literary theory. The second presents the author's teaching as a case study. The third section concludes with implications for a philosophy of theological education.
