Contemporary biblical scholarship has reached an impasse. The various programs for bridging the gap between the ancient texts and their contemporary theological and ethical appropriation are often unsatisfactory at best and at worst even suspect in their results. We need an effective way to cross that bridge…or a new bridge. Ronald Farmer suggests that a “process hermeneutic” holds promise of moving biblical interpretation beyond the current impasse.

With a few notable exceptions (particularly some strands of the theology of the Black church), the dominant strands of theology in America have been indebted to Continental European social and intellectual suppositions. American religion needs a theological model with which to be more effectively put in touch with the core suppositions of American society. in A Common Sense Theology, mark Ellingsen demonstrates how one of the emerging theologies of our time can provide such a truly American theology. Mark Ellingsen, who has taught at Luther-Northwestern Seminaries and at the Institute for Ecumenical research in Strasbourg (France), is now (sense 1993) at that Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta. he is the author of numerous articles and papers and of six books, including The Integrity of Biblical Narrative and Cutting Edge Issues in Global Society: What Are the Churches Saying?
