John William Burgon (1813 -1888) was an English Anglican divine who became the Dean of Chichester Cathedral in 1876. He is remembered for his passionate defence of the historicity and Mosaic authorship of Genesis and of Biblical inerrancy in general. Apart from the poem Petra, Burgon's most notable works for which he is remembered today are The Revision Revised which was a critique of the then-new Revised Version of the Bible (1881), The Last Twelve Verses of Mark, The Traditional Text, and Causes of Corruption of the Traditional Text of the Holy Gospels.

Models for Scripture

Author: John Goldingay
Publisher: Clements Publishing Group
ISBN: 1894667417
Release Date: 2004
Genre: Religion

This work looks at the task of interpreting Scripture as "witnessing tradition," "authoritative canon," "inspired word," and "experienced revelation." The diversity of interpretive approaches implied by the use of these four models of Scripture is carried further by a methodological catholicity and openness within each of the four major divisions of the book. Throughout, Goldingay also continually moves toward the interpreter's final task- communication to others of what has been gained in interpretation.

Anatomy of a Controversy

Author: Josef Lewis Altholz
Publisher: Scolar Press
ISBN: MINN:31951D01066897G
Release Date: 1994-01-01
Genre: Religion

Controversy, especially religious controversy, was the great spectator sport of Victorian England. This work is a study of the biggest and best of Victorian religious controversies. Essays and Reviews was the culmination and final act of the Broad Church movement. Outwardly the conflict ended inconclusively: at a deeper level, it marked the exhaustion both of the Broad Church and of Anglican orthodoxy and the commencement of an era of religious doubt. This controversy illustrates the pathology of Victorian religion in its demonstration of the propensity to controvert and the methods of controversialists. It is both the greatest Victorian crisis of faith and the best case study of Victorian religious controversy.
