This book is about the crisis brought about by doctrine's estrangement from reality--that is from actual lives, experiences, histories, and from God. By invoking "the end of doctrine," Christine Helmer opens a new discussion of doctrinal production that is engaged with the challenges and possibilities of modernity. The end of doctrine refers on the one hand to unquestioning doctrinal reception, which Helmer critiques, and on the other, represents an invitation to a new way of understanding the aim of doctrine in deeper connection to the reality that it seeks. The book's first section offers an analysis of the current situation in theology by reconstructing a trajectory of Protestant theology from the turn of the twentieth century to today. This history focuses primarily on the status of the word in theology and explains how changes in theology in the context of the political and social crisis in Europe in the 1920s and 1930s led to a distancing of the word from reality. Helmer then turns to the constructive section of the book to propose a repositioning of theology to the world and to God. Helmer's powerful work will inspire revitalized interest in both doctrine and theological inquiry itself.

In the third section are later essays on post-structuralist hermeneutics, and in the fourth, interviews in which he discusses text, language, and myths. Mario ValdEs provides an introduction to the literary theories of Paul Ricoeur and the works in this collection particularly.

The projected thirty-volume Encyclopedia of the Bible and Its Reception (EBR) is intended to serve as a comprehensive guide to the current state of knowledge on the background, origins, and development of the canonical texts of the Bible as they were accepted in Judaism and Christianity. Unprecedented in breadth and scope, this encyclopedia also documents the history of the Bible''s interpretation and reception across the centuries, not only in Judaism and Christianity, but also in literature, visual art, music, film, and dance, as well as in Islam and other religious traditions and new religious movements. The EBR is also available online. Further information on ,,The Bible and Its Reception". Blogger''s Choice - Articles recommended by biblioblogger Jim West (https://zwingliusredivivus.wordpress.com) The entry in the 14th volume of the Encyclopedia of the Bible and its Reception which best represents the quality of scholarship and the range of reception of historical issues covered is the first article in the volume - on Jesus. The series of essays extends nearly 100 columns (50 pages) and could easily be a book in their own right. Dozens of authors have contributed and evaluated so many fascinating facets of the historical Jesus and his reception that one is left, after reading the entry, stunned and amazed. The authors of the eleven subsections include, but are not limited to Tom Homen, Rivka Ulmer, Donald Hagner, Justin Mihoc, Paul Metzger. Jewish Revolt, First (Free content) (Mladen Popović and Marijn Vandenberghe; Groningen, The Netherlands Another of the very commendable entries of all those worthy of commendation is that by Popović and Vandenberghe on the First Jewish Revolt. Whilst this is not a lengthy entry it nonetheless includes everything relevant to any modern discussion of the Revolt that saw the destruction of Jerusalem in the First Century CE. https://www.degruyter.com/view/EBR/MainLemma_4080 John of the Cross (Terence O''Reilly; Cork, Ireland) Scholars and students who appreciate mysticism and mystical theologians will enjoy O''Reilly''s entry on St John of the Cross. His treatment of this important thinker (at least in the minds of those in some quarters of the Church) is precise and informative without being dull or plodding. John the Baptist I. New Testament (Knut Backhaus; Munich, Germany) Backhaus begins his survey of John the Baptist by suggesting that "Ever since Hermann Samuel Reimarus, research on John the Baptist has often been a "forerunner" of historical Jesus research and shared its methodological development. Within the "third quest" John is no longer viewed as a somewhat isolated predecessor, who prepares the way for Jesus, but as a prophet of eschatological restoration in the context of Second Temple Judaism." His piece then goes on to show why John deserves discussion and examination in his own right. Josephus, Titus Flavius (Zuleika Rodgers; Dublin, Ireland/Tessa Rajak, Oxford, United Kingdom/Gerbern S. Oegema, Montreal, Que., Canada/ Bernhard 〈 Berlin, Germany/Ori Z. Soltes; Washington, D.C., USA) Josephus receives a fair bit of attention, the entry discussing him covering twenty columns. He was and has been a polarizing figure and the authors of the subsections of his entry are able to overcome bias and present him - as he has been presented in Judaism, Christianity, literature, and the visual arts - with equity and charity. Joyce, James (Free content) (Anthony Swindell; Llanidloes, United Kingdom) James Joyce is introduced thusly and his presence in a volume devoted to Biblical Reception history is justified fully by Anthony Swindell, "One of the most influential writers of the 20th century, James Joyce (b. 1882, Rathgar, Ireland - d. 1941, Zurich) was also a voracious reader and true polymath, extraordinarily well informed about the leading biblical scholarship of his day, as well as about various more recondite and delinquent byways." Swindell then demonstrates through numerous examples what scholarship was as Joyce encountered it. https://www.degruyter.com/view/EBR/MainLemma_38482 Jozabad (Jean-Fran�ois Lando Landolt informs us: "(MT Y�zābād; LXX ΙΩΖΑΒΑΔ, ΙΩΖΑΒΑ&thΗ, or ΙΩΣΑΒΕΔ) occurs several times in the Bible (1 Chr 12:5, 21; 2 Chr 31:13; 35:9; Ezra 8:33 LXX= 2 Esd 8:33; Ezra 10:22, 23 LXX= 2 Esd 10:22, 23) as the name of a number of different figures" (Col 843). To be exact, there are six persons of that name, and Landolt discusses all of them. Jubilee, Year of IV. Christianity B. Modern Europe and America (Michael Harbin; Upland, Ind., USA) Year of Jubilee finds itself discussed in columns 850 and following. It has to be said that this is one of the more interesting ancient festivals which, apparently, was never actually celebrated. Its appearance in the Old and New Testaments as well as in Hellenistic Judaism and rabbinic Judaism and Christianity makes up the extent of the article. Indeed, the essay goes so far as to discuss the Jubilee in American Christianity. We read "Beginning with the premise that the biblical Jubilee was a year in which slaves were freed and debts were forgiven, America especially experienced two distinct movements viewed as manifestations of the Jubilee. The first resulted from Lincoln''s Emancipation Proclamation promulgated on January 1, 1863." This illustrates, I think, the extent to which biblical notions have infiltrated even our world. Judah (Son of Jacob) VI. Film (Free Content) (Peter T. Chattaway; Vancouver, BC, Canada). Judah (both the persons and the place) are investigated and explicated. The eight persons named Judah in the biblical text and the land taking its name from the Patriarch receive thorough historical investigation. Even if that means turning to Iranian television and its treatment of Jacob (and Joseph) in the entry on Judah (Son of Jacob): "The Iranian TV series Yousuf e Payambar (dir. Farajollah Salahshoor, 2008, Prophet Joseph) tells the story of Joseph and his brothers in a way that reflects modern Middle Eastern tensions. Jacob and Joseph are depicted here as two in a line of Muslim prophets, while Judah - who once again takes the lead in trying to kill Joseph when he''s younger - privately declares at the end of the series that it is his descendants, rather than Joseph''s, that will determine the fate of their clan: "The children of Israel will be called Judaists, not Josephists," he says ominously." https://www.degruyter.com/view/EBR/key_0354a55b-d79e-4ed0-bcae-19e8d8b9fad3 These are just some of the other entries which fill this volume with the kind of helpful historical information so invaluable to researchers of the biblical text today. The editors of EBR continue to provide a multi-volume tool for biblical interpretation and the interpretation of the Bible''s own interpretation which is unmatched anywhere else in print or online.
