As in his prior books (Holy Blood, Holy Grail; The Jesus Papers), Baigent attempts to discover the darkish forceshiding within the shadows of faith and ferret out fundamentalists whose dogmatism usually turns to violence. concentrating on the tip instances, he warns that strong fundamentalist sects in Christianity, Judaism and Islam are operating to lead to the conflict of Armageddon, whilst the forces of darkness can be destroyed through the Messiah, who will then result in a brand new reign. All 3 teams wish Jerusalem, the place each one lays declare to a actual spot, the Dome of the Rock, as a sacred position in its heritage; all 3 need a nation during which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes an analogous mistake that the fundamentalists make whilst studying the e-book of Revelation. it isn't a ebook of prophecy and guide for scary sinners again into the fold; it's apocalyptic literature that makes use of symbols as mystery codes for the scenario within the lives of first- and second-century Christians, supplying them wish for escaping from their plights. unfortunately, Baigent's well-intentioned exposé seems to be little greater than a screed opposed to fundamentalism that's in line with a misreading of his critical textual content.

First, just as Child rejected the notion that he should be known as a canonical critic, one should assume that he would have also rejected calling himself a form critic. He would have agreed that he used form-critical perspectives in his work as a biblical scholar, but he would have also maintained that he deployed other critical perspectives as well, notably tradition history and redaction criticism. Form criticism belonged to the full range of methods that a responsible scholar would use when analyzing biblical literature.
Childs does not appear to have written extensively on the notion of a biblical book. Cf. Ehud Ben Zvi, “The Prophetic Book: A Key Form of Prophetic Literature,” in The Changing Face of Form Criticism for the Twenty-First Century (ed. Marvin Sweeney and Ehud Ben Zvi; Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2003), 276–97. 23. Childs, Introduction to the Old Testament as Scripture, 129. 24. , 130. 18 THE BIBLE AS CHRISTIAN SCRIPTURE though a literary “unity,” reflects diverse authorial hands. ”25 Childs also thought it noteworthy that this editor referred to earlier prophetic literature when updating Joel’s original message.

Matthias Köckert and Erhard Blum; VGWTh 18; Gütersloh: Chr. Kaiser/Gütersloher Verlagshaus, 2001], 41–87), judge that vv. 7–8 and 22–24 are later additions to an original separate Horeb narrative. I doubt that such a narrative ever existed in Deut 9–10 and I see no compelling reasons for this literary-critical operation.
