Opening Up the Scriptures: Joseph Ratzinger and the Foundations of Biblical Interpretation
Opening Up the Scriptures was written by a group of eminent Catholics, among them Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger—now Pope Benedict XVI. In these erudite essays, the authors contend that historical-critical interpretation of Scripture has long since run its course in both Protestant and Catholic exegesis. Instead, they argue, the future of interpretation lies in accepting that the Bible is not just a collection of historical documents but also a record of revelation conceived in faith. By this token, true exegesis involves the faith and humility of the exegete.
