The Contribution of Biblical Studies to the Humanities – Mark S. Smith
Posted by NT Wrong on July 2, 2008
From The Skillful-and-Wise One, Mark S. Smith:
“Perhaps beause of its historical roots in theology, the field of Israelite religion (not to mention biblical studies generally) remains one that does not generate its own general theoretical contribution to the humanities or social sciences.”
– Mark S. Smith, The Early History of God: Yahweh and Other Deities in Ancient Israel. 2nd edn.; Grand Rapids & Cambridge: Eerdmans, 2002: xxx.
Is Mark S. Smith right?
