ABSTRACT
The present volume gives an excellent and comprehensive survey of the history of New Testament scholarship between 1870 and 1940. It covers the whole range of disciplines associated with New Testament studies. There is a welcome emphasis on American and British contributions. The author succeeds in presenting scholars and their research on their own terms without imposing his own agenda on them. All in all Baird is a sure and inspiring guide through a vast field: NT research in America during the 19th century, the establishment of historical criticism in Britain, the triumph of liberalism on the continent, the return of scepticism, new discoveries in linguistic, geographical and historical research, methodological developments, the advance of American research, a survey of conservative alternatives on the continent and the refinement of historical criticism. Volume one covers From Deism to Tübingen (1992), the projected final volume will be entitled From Biblical Theology to Pluralism.
