Seeing the Word is an important contribution to NT studies that deserves serious consideration from NT scholars. Bockmuehl's basic argument is sound, namely, that NT scholars must interpret the NT with sensitivity to the way the early church read it and an awareness of its coherent diversity.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0801027616, Paperback)

At a time of deep disagreements about the nature and purpose of academic biblical studies, Markus Bockmuehl advocates the recovery of a plural but common conversation on the subject of what the New Testament is about.

Seeing the Word begins with an assessment of current New Testament studies, identifying both persistent challenges and some promising proposals. Subsequent chapters explore two such proposals. First, ground for common conversation lies in taking seriously the readers and readings the text implies. Second, Bockmuehl explores the text's early effective history by a study of apostolic memory in the early church.

All serious students of the Bible and theology will find much of interest, and much to discuss, in this first volume in the Studies in Theological Interpretation series.
