More About the Author

I am currently Professor of New Testament at the University of Chichester in England. I have always been interested in the way that the New Testament authors use Scripture and my PhD (Birmingham, 1994)was on the book of Revelation. As well as the nine books that I have written, I have also edited or co-edited nine books, including an important series with my friend and colleague, Maarten Menken from the Netherlands. These are:

The Psalms in the New Testament (2004)
Isaiah in the New Testament (2005)
Deuteronomy in the New Testament (2008)
The Minor Prophets in the New Testament (2009)
Genesis in the New Testament (2012)

My latest book is on the infancy narratives (Was the Birth of Jesus According to Scripture?) and I cannot quite decide at the moment whether to write the obvious sequel: Was the Death of Jesus According to Scripture? Let me know what you think.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Pamela B. Garrud VINE VOICE on 18 Sep 2000
Format: Paperback
Moyise is described on the back cover of the book as being "Vice Principal of the St. Albans and Oxford Ministry Course." The book is one in the "Cassell Biblical Studies Series" which is intended as an ecumenical biblical studies series between Protestants and (Roman, I presume) Catholics.
The book covers all the ways of "doing" biblical criticism in a concise way whilst illustrating with interesting anecdotes where needed. Topics covered include: inspiration, historical criticism, form criticism, redaction criticism, social-scientific criticism, reader-response criticism, and post-modern criticism. This book will help new biblical studies students identify these types of biblical criticism. It does not cover any individual subject in depth.

This is written so even I could understand it. Needed it for my course but might just have read it anyway.

Brilliant introduction 20 Feb 2005
By Freeborn John - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Steve Moyise's Introduction to Biblical Studies is a small book but is a very well written and informative introduction to the field. There are chapters and sections on most areas of concern and confusion such as Redaction, form and literary criticism etc.

I have undertaken a degree in theology and as a `evangelical exile' stayed clear of all the biblical modules I could simply because it scared me (give me philosophy of religion any day). However, had I known this book then such modules would have been a lot easier. Whilst it is only a slim volume the amount of information in its pages is surprising. There is also a very helpful subject-specific bibliography and the end of each chapter. Overall I doubt this book will hold any real interest to advanced students or scholars however as an introduction to biblical criticism this should be on top of all the recommended reading lists.
