Clash of Visions
Populism and Elitism in New Testament Theology
Robert W. Yarbrough
Without dismissing the contribution of post–Enlightenment biblical studies,
Yarbrough is recommending what one may call an Augustinian hermeneutic, already practiced in the majority world, where Christianity continues to thrive. He calls into question the … marginalization of ‘populist’ interpretive voices by an ‘elitist’ academia which has long lost its bearings.
