"The emergence of historical consciousness in the West has posed major challenges to Christian faith and theology over 300 years. Christophe Chalamet's expertly introduced thirty-seven excerpts from key figures from the Renaissance to Liberation Theologies brilliantly illuminate the development of biblical criticism and its impact. The international and ecumenical scope of this selection gives due recognition to the German masters while also retrieving valuable statements from some less well-known scholars. Excellent translations make crucial insights from European intellectual history available to new readers, and the editor's measured judgments on the necessity of critical investigation of the Bible are a refreshing contribution to contemporary debate."
