Doing Scholarship Like the Church Matters

“Both of us are deeply troubled by the way in which modern scholarship continues to produce studies of the text that do not (and often cannot) connect with Scripture’s target audience, the people of God who gather each week by the power of the Spirit to be sanctified as disciples of Jesus. We refuse to believe that the church is not hungry for a deeper, more intelligent, and even more demanding encounter with the biblical text” (David Nienhuis & Robert Wall, Reading the Epistles of James, Peter, John & Jude as Scripture, xv-xvi).
