Should Evangelicals Embrace Historical Criticism? A Review Essay by Dr. Bob Yarbrough
By Covenant Seminary on Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

In a review originally published in the journal Themelios (vol.  39, no. 1; April 2014) and posted on The Gospel Coalition website, Dr. Robert W. Yarbrough, professor of New Testament, offers a thorough overview and in-depth critique of the recent book Evangelical Faith and the Challenge of Historical Criticism, edited by Christopher M. Hays and Chrisopher B. Ansberry (Baker Academic, 2013).

The book argues that evangelical scholars have failed to embrace historical criticism to the extent that they could and should. Yarbrough surveys the book’s argument chapter by chapter, asks how its claims should be evaluated, and shows that, though Hays and Ansberry's work marks a significant step in the discussion of these matters, it doesn't always take us in a helpful direction.
