Has anyone read Walter Wink's The Bible in Human Transformation: Towards a New Paradigm for Biblical Study ?

Walter Wink, Theologian and Author, Dies at 76


Published: May 19, 2012

Walter Wink, an influential liberal theologian whose views on homosexuality, nonviolence and the nature of Jesus challenged orthodox interpretations, died on May 10 at his home in Sandisfield, Mass. He was 76.

He taught at Union in the first half of the 1970s, but was denied tenure. This rejection came, he noted, after the publication in 1973 of his book "The Bible in Human Transformation," which began, "Historical biblical criticism is bankrupt."

I have not read the book, but I was fascinated by the fact that the book began, "Historical biblical criticism is bankrupt."
