The eighteenth and nineteenth centuries provided a number of new paradigms for reading the Bible that challenged the then prevailing literal or allegorical model of reading the Bible. In the late twentieth century, the number of methods for reading the Bible multiplied to such an extent that by the end of the century there were almost as many models for reading Scripture as there were readers of Scripture. The editors have gathered essays by a number of internationally recognized scholars, ranging from evangelical biblical critics to postmodern biblical critics, who explore a variety of models for reading the Bible in the Third Millennium. The collection includes an Afterword by distinguished church historian Martin Marty on the relation between the past and the future.

"This book is highly recommended as an up-to-date survey of the place of the Bible in contemporary Christianity, including the impacts of technology such as the Internet, CD-ROMS, and hypertext."- Bible Editions and Versions, January 2006, pg.24-25
