A proliferation of secular scholarship on the Bible is incompatible with traditionally held views about its origins, its historical accuracy, and its divinity. In the past few decades, Orthodox thinkers have gained momentum in challenging the assumptions of such scholarship and in unearthing findings from that scholarship that concord with, and serve to affirm, traditional views. We will examine some of the assumptions on which secular scholarship is based and explore some examples of orthodox intellectual creativity. Amid the proliferation and clamor of academic bible scholarship, we may spy the modest flowering of a religious renaissance.
