Leithart on Critical Biblical Scholarship

Theologian and Pastor Peter Leithart on critical biblical scholarship:

"One of the most annoying things about critical biblical scholarship is the way that every discussion has to contribute to questions of composition, authorship, historical setting, etc. Harrington gives a very intriguing paper on holiness in Ezra-Nehemiah, but the whole thing is part of a "larger" argument about the common authorship of the two books.

Without a church to serve with edifying theological interpretation, scholars serve the pseudo-church of biblical scholarship."

I liked that quote too. Great thing is that Leithart put his money where his mouth is and wrote the 1 and 2 Kings theological commmentary.
