About the Author

Barbara E. Bowe, RSCJ, was professor of biblical studies at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago where she taught courses in New Testament and early Christianity and directed the Biblical Spirituality Program. Laurie Brink, OP, is associate professor of New Testament Studies at Catholic Theological Union and an associate editor for The Bible Today. She has published numerous articles on Scripture, and her most recent book focuses on the role of soldiers in Luke-Acts. John R. Barker, OFM, is assistant professor of Old Testament Studies at Catholic Theological Union and the Old Testament book reviewer for The Bible Today. He is a regular contributor to pastoral publications such as Emmanuel Magazine, The Bible Today, and Weekday Homily Helps.


In this second edition of Barbara Bowe's award-winning book, the original text is supplemented by two excellent new chapters. John Barker's discussion of postexilic theology serves as a bridge between the theology of the Old and New Testaments, and Laurie Brink provides a sketch of the postcanonical movement of Christian theology. Bowe laid a firm foundation for this work; Barker and Brink have added to the trustworthiness of its structure. -- Dianne Bergant, CSA, Catholic Theological Union
Barbara Bowe's work contributes to an understanding of spirituality that emphasizes how our daily and contextual response to God gives rise to our theology. Her work considers how the lived daily experience of a people of faith "touching their fingers to the flame" and "eating God's word" gave rise to the Sacred Scripture and continues to give rise to our theologizing on that Scripture. The contributions of John R. Barker and Laurie Brink to this new edition of Bowe's masterful work help the flame of her book burn even brighter. -- Gilberto Cavazos-Gonzalez, OFM, Pontifical University Antonianum
