Brevard Childs, one of the monumental figures in biblical interpretation in the last half-century, is a founding presence in the current resurgence in theological interpretation of Scripture. He combined critique of biblical scholarship with a constructive proposal related to the canon. Because his work is influential, complex, and contested, it needs and merits clarification. In this full-scale explication of Childs' thought, Daniel Driver takes account of the complete corpus of Childs' work, providing a thorough introduction to the context, content, and reception of his canonical approach.
