Reed, Randall W.

Series Information
Princeton Theological Monograph Series, 136


Description: Marxism is one of the revolutionary social-scientific theories that has come to have a prominent place in New Testament studies in the United States. It is often combined with liberation theology and applied to apocalyptic texts. This book argues that the basic presuppositions of these three ideological systems are ultimately at odds with one another. The study then traces the kinds of moves scholars in New Testament studies have made to overcome this problem.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Literature, Methods, Ideological Critique
