Description: Critics have tried to revitalize the discipline of New Testament theology. The results of their labors are often disappointing. A. K. M. Adam suggests the problems many sense in New Testament theology arise from a mismatch of method and goals. That mismatch stems from a preoccupation with modernity as resident in the hallowed halls of regnant historical criticism. We need a hermeneutics of theology, a hermeneutics of hermeneutics. Adam here helps us understand what to keep of the historical-critical perspective when the realization hits that we have been sold a bill of goods that no longer makes good on its promises. In that sense, Adam's book is far more friendly to the historical-critical method as such than unfriendly (editor's preface).
