Psychological Biblical Criticism

Kille, D. Andrew (2001). Psychological Biblical Criticism. Minneapolis: Fortress Press.

Part of the “Guides to Old Testament Scholarship” series, this volume offers a brief introduction to psychological biblical criticism in general and a specific investigation of interpretations of Genesis 3 from the perspectives of Freudian, Jungian, and developmental psychologies. Using a model of adequate interpretation drawn from the work of Paul Ricoueur, the book evaluates each of the approaches and suggests directions for future work.

This book was featured in a session of the Psychology and Biblical Studies Section at the SBL Annual Meeting in Denver in November 2001.
