Conservative. One of the criteria of a books usefulness to the pastor turns on the contribution of an author to this dimension of Scriptures role within the church. (p. 10) In my evaluation of books, I am critical of a conservative stance that rejects the insights of literary criticism from the outset on dogmatic grounds and seeks to return to the past. Conversely, I am equally dissatisfied with the reigning liberal stance that assumes the normative role of historical criticism in determining the Bibles meaning and shows little understanding of the theological issues at stake for the life of the church. (p. 11) ~ Carroll R., M. Daniel & Richard S. Hess. Annotated Old Testament Bibliography. Denver Journal. (2005; na). "One of the most useful and wide ranging bibliographies of earlier works." ~ Stitzinger, James F. "Study Tools for Expository Preaching," in Rediscovering Expository Preaching. (1992; 2002).

Brown, Raymond E. An Introduction to the New Testament. The Anchor Yale Bible Reference Library. ( New York, NY: Doubleday, 1997; na.: na., na). Critical. [American Roman Catholic] From the Introduction: 1) Intended for students rather than scholars. **The bibliographies cite only works in English and concentrate on recent books over journal articles. 2) Concentrates on the NT rather than "Early Christianity." 3) Focuses on extant texts rather than their prehistory. 4) Designed to focus on reading the text first, then delves into issues of sources, authorship, dating, etc. 5) Most chapters close with a section titled "Issues and Problems for Reflection." 6) Aims to hold a centrist perspective. ~ Glynn, John.
