Thank you to the publishers for this advance review copy before the book is published!

Mark S. Gignilliat. Reading Scripture Canonically. Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Academic, June 18th, 2019. 144 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This book was written as an introduction to what is called the canonical approach of the Bible.  The approach is known best by its advocate Brevard Childs.  I have previously read the author’s earlier book titled A Brief History of Old Testament Criticism and have found that work extremely helpful.  In this present book it is less a history of Old Testament Criticism as it is a short introduction to one method of biblical criticism: Canonical criticism.  By criticism I don’t mean complaining or critiquing the Bible as it is a means of coming to understand the Bible rigorously.
