Some really great chapters on premodern theologians. Horton has an excellent introduction to the section on doctrine of Scripture in the Reformation. Zachman's chapter on Calvin was great. Cochran's taxonomy of feminist interpretations of Scripture was very helpful. Overall, this is probably a 3.75, but, as per usual, I'm a softie, so I'll round up.
Overall, I think this is a great collaborative effort to explain how scripture has been read through the ages. Some essays are better than others of course (as can be said of any compilation with various authors), but overall I found it helpful in seeing the role historical context has played in how scripture is read and interpreted. Especially enjoyed the chapters on Origen, Luther, Barth, and Feminist theology.
