Methods in Biblical Textual Study
Form, Textual, Reduction and Literally Criticism
An increasing number of Biblical scholars are today considering the Bible primarily and fundamentally as a literary document as opposed to may be considering it as a historical or Theological document.
Despite this unity however, they employ often very different and even incompatible methodologies for the study of literary texts and usually disagree about the implications of their work for the understanding of the Bible.
This book is meant to help all who are interested in learning scriptures scientifically.The book is an expansion of my lecture notes in both State and Private Universities and colleges in Kenya.The book is simple and easy to follow.Each chapter can be translated into three credit hours for a core course.Each chapter is short, clear, precise and to the point and it is long enough to cover the essential and short enough to arouse the curiousity.
I recommend the book to all university faculties both State and Private teaching scripture, religion, theology and literature.It can serve as guide for those in the first degree or second.Pastors experiencing burnout in scripture can use it.
Lecturers in University teaching scripture can use it as a text book in lecturing
