Starting from three recent but seemingly unrelated events—the passing
of three prominent leaders, the publication of a book on Disciples
biblical interpretation, and the Jesus Seminar—this article asks some
key questions about the state of biblical studies within the independent
branch of Stone-Campbell Restoration Movement. This paper calls for
new discussions on the role of historical inquiry and the relationship
between history and tradition. It does so with a refusal to be limited to
choices between mutually exclusive extremes, critical studies or the
Restoration plea. The both/and approaches of some moderate scholars
are examined as possible models for a way forward for Restoration
biblical studies.
